With golf becoming an Olympic event for the first time in over 100-years at the 2016 Rio Olympic games, we take a look of golf courses you can play during your visit to the games.
I know once you have watched the games and seeing glimpses of the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro on your TV screens you will want to visit and play golf in this part wonderful and diverse country.
With that in mind we have put together a few courses that we think you should play during your stay to this wonderful part of the world. What more could you want from a golf destination, great courses to play, wonderful food, plenty of sun to play in and of course not forgetting the fantastic nightlife.
