A guide to the ninth hole of the Rio Olympic Golf Course ahead of the 2016 Olympics in August
Rio Olympic Golf Course Hole by Hole: Hole 9
Hole 9 – Par 4 – 328 yards
The 359-yard par 4 brings the front nine to a close and, despite being reachable for the longest of hitters, we will not see many, if any, on this green in one due to the prevailing wind coming from the right.
The green is the second smallest on the course and is protected by dunes and one bunker on the left.
This should be a nice finish to the front nine and a definite birdie chance if played well.
