Olympic Golf Ranking as at July 11, 2016

The International Golf Federation is recognised by the International Olympic Committee as the world governing body for golf.

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.

The golf course is being built at Reserva de Marapendi in Barra da Tijuca, approximately five kilometres from the Athletes’ Village, South of Avenida das Americas and North of Lagoa de Marapendi.

The format will be a 72-hole individual stroke play competition for both men and women. In the event of a tie for either first, second or third place, a three-hole playoff will determine the medal winner(s).
