THE latest issue of the online quarterly magazine Golf Industry Central raises the thorny issue of which players should be able to represent their countries in golf at the 2016 Olympics.
It was an incredible milestone for the game internationally this year when golf was added to the mix for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
But the big question is, should the field be restricted to the world’s elite professionals, or is it an opportunity to put some unknown amateur talent in the spotlight – a la Eddie the Eagle.
In the Summer Edition of GIC magazine, Brisbane based US PGA Member Grant Garrison gives an insight into some great players in Bhutan that dream of playing in the Olympics but may never realise their potential due to an pending decision by the International Golf Federation.
Also in the issue Jeff Blunden gives a detailed report on the state of junior golf in Australia and there are updates on some of the newest courses to open in Australia – Barnbougle Lost Farm and Kalgoorlie.
