September 29, 2016


According to an article posted on GolfAdvisor.com yesterday, the golf course that hosted the 2016 Summer Olympic competition last month in Rio de Janeiro will open for public play this coming Saturday, October 1. Green fees will be $75 for Brazilians and will range from $150 to $225 for foreigners. The keeper of the course, the Brazilian Golf Federation, will soon launch a website where golfers can book tee times.

Except for the putting greens, the Olympic Golf Course in Rio is grassed with Zeon Zoysia, one of The Turfgrass Group’s best-selling and most environmentally friendly turfgrass cultivars.
