You CANNOT Miss These Pics Of The New Olympic Golf Course!

Whether or not you think that adding golf to the Olympics is a good idea, it’s happening! When the Olympics kick off in Rio next year, it will mark the first time in 112 years that golf has featured in the world athletic competition. We still don’t know who will be competing (it’ll be 60 men and 60 women with no more than four players per nation & no more than two once past the top 15 in world rankings) and we haven’t heard anything about the course since the beginning of this year. Back in January, course designer Gil Hanse announced that construction on the course had finally finished after numerous setbacks. The clubhouse, however, won’t be finished until November. Test runs of the course will start in late 2015 or early 2016.  Here at the Rock, we’ve been waiting to see just what the course would look like, and NBC has delivered! NBC Sports posted photos of the course outside Rio. Take a look for yourself!
