"Our message remains: There is time, but time is ticking, and they need to carry on attacking this one with all vigour," IOC spokesman Mark Adams said.

I think I asked this once before but don't remember if there was an answer....

....from the perspective of the architect/builder what's the drop dead date in terms of getting on site and being able to present a top notch and sufficiently mature course on which to contest "Olympic golf"?

This what happens when golf allows itself to be seduced by the whores at the IOC.

The golf is close to the least of the concerns for the Olympics in Rio. It's not going to be pretty.

You mean returning Brazilians?

PA is right on. Golf is low man on Rio 2016's tottem pole. Add the simmering resentment of Rio's two old line clubs and golfers are going to be about as welcome as foot fungus.

IOC Sports/Games = Turning what used to be a simple and innocent activity into Socio-Economic-Political boondoggles.

I've got a feeling that 2016 will be the first and last time we see our favorite pastime in the Olympics....and good for that!
