Golf returns to the Olympics

Our Stories

Hot off the press from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) – golf is set to join the Olympics from 2016 onwards after a 112 year absence. The big question is if the big guns in the sport will be bothered to show up, is an Olympic gold medal enough of an enticement and has it become a world game?

 

Hot off the press from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) – golf is set to join the Olympics from 2016 onwards after a 112 year absence. The big questions are if the big guns in the sport will be bothered to show up, is an Olympic gold medal enough of an enticement for them and has golf become a world game?

One growing hotbed of golf is Morocco. Marrakech in the autumn – when the temperatures are in the mid or upper twenties – is home to a host of first class golf courses with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains providing a stunning backdrop. If you haven’t been to Marrakech during autumn or winter I highly recommend it for some winter sun and why not try the souks for Christmas shopping? Get in the mood for 2016 (Chicago, Tokyo, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro being the current rivals for hosting) and get the handicap lowered! Mika Bishop
