To mark golf's return to the Olympic programme in 2016 in Rio De Janeiro, The Olympic Museum in Lausanne is devoting an exhibition to golf.
After a 112-year absence, golf is returning to the Olympic programme in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro!
To mark this event, The Olympic Museum is devoting an exhibition to golf that will be previewed from 9 December 2015 to 31 January 2016 in Lausanne (Switzerland).
Staged at two editions of the Games (Paris 1900 and St Louis 1904), golf is getting its Olympic swing back. The design, with its several “holes”, offers a “walk through the course” to visitors, enabling them to discover everything about this sport before the upcoming Games: its origins, the equipment, Rules, courses and the biggest golfing icons. No “green fee” is required to enter, as the exhibition is free of charge.
Take advantage before its imminent departure to Rio de Janeiro, where it will be presented in the fan zone at the golf venue during the Games.
The exhibition has been created by the Olympic Museum in partnership with the International Golf Federation (IGF) and with the scientific help of the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum (USA), The R&A (UK), USGA Museum and Golf Canada.
