Golf will make a long-awaited return to the Olympic Games in 2016, as the best players in the world head to Rio to compete in the first Olympic golf tournament in 112 years. In the lead story in issue 45 of Golf Course Architecture, Adam Lawrence takes a look Gil Hanse’s course design, what to expect from the tournament, and considers the importance of the event being a success for golf as a whole.

In the tee box section, we take a look at the new holes on the Ailsa course at Trump Turnberry, and we also report on a new six-hole course under construction in Hong Kong, visit Christian Althaus’ first solo design at Hofgut Georgenthal in Germany, and learn more about a five year plan to improve Strandhill Golf Club in the west of Ireland.
