Olympic Report

August 19th, 2014

It’s good to have some positive news to report about the construction of the golf course for the 2016 Rio Olympics – including photographs of the work in progress.

We acknowledge the assistance of Marcelo Matte, owner of Green Grass Brazil, who provided these images and send best wishes to everyone concerned with bringing the course to Olympic Championship standard over the next two years, not least the golf course superintendent, Neil Cleverly.
