2009 The IOC (International Olympic Committee) votes 63 to 27 in favour of including golf in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Under IOC rules, the vote means that golf is automatically confirmed for the 2020 Games as well. Golf was played at two previous Olympics, in 1900 in Paris and in 1904 in St Louis, but was withdrawn before the 1908 London Games. The 1900 golf events were remarkable for a 9 hole ladies stroke play contest, the first time women participated in the Olympics in any sport.
