A guide to the eleventh hole of the Rio Olympic Golf Course ahead of the 2016 Olympics in August
Rio Olympic Golf Course Hole by Hole: Hole 11
Hole 11 – Par 4 – 484 yards
The 11th is a long par-4, measuring 484 yards and heads back towards the clubhouse.
The tee shot looks very intimidating with the waste area and bunker immediately in your view, but there is plenty of fairway beyond that and the players really shouldn’t have a problem.
Most players will be using a mid to long iron for their approach shots into another green that is wide but shallow.
Flying the front bunker, holding the green and avoiding the two back bunkers will use all the players’ skills to make par or better here.
