Olympic Golf tickets on sale next month


Tickets for the golf events at the Rio Olympic Games 2016 will go on sale on rio2016.com next month. The course at Reserva de Marapendi, designed by Gil Hanse and Amy Allcott is completed but the course is still maturing.  A one day test event will be played in March with four leading male and female players. The men’s event will take place 11-14 August 2016 and the womens event 17-20 August.

Qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will be based on the Official World Golf Ranking of 11 July 2016, making up a field of 60 players in each of the men’s and women’s events.

The top 15 men and women will automatically qualify, provided there are not more than four golfers per country. The remaining 45 places will go the highest-ranked players from countries that do not already have two golfers qualified, with at least one golfer from the host nation Brazil and one from each geographical Olympic region (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania) guaranteed a place.

Players currently qualified at September 2015 are:
