The 2024 Olympic Games will be staged in Paris from July 26 to August 11.

The French capital will become the second city, after London, to host the Summer Olympics three times. It previously staged the quadrennial sporting showpiece in 1900 and 1924.

Golf will be one of 32 sports to feature in Paris 2024, the third consecutive Games it has been part of following its Olympic reinstatement in 2009.

As was the case at Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 (delayed until 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic), there will be separate golf competitions for men and women.

The 2024 men’s Olympic golf event will take place from August 1-4, with the women’s tournament being staged from August 7-10.

Both events will be played at Le Golf National, below, located in Guyancourt on the outskirts of Paris. The course previously staged the 2018 Ryder Cup and has been used for almost 30 editions of the French Open.

Le Golf National General

Each event will comprise 60-player fields with golfers qualifying based on the official International Golf Federation (IGF) world ranking list published on June 17, 2024 (men) and Jun 24, 2024 (women).

The top-15 players will all qualify automatically (maximum of four per National Olympic Committee (NOC), with the remaining spots awarded to the players ranked 16th onwards, with a maximum of two per NOC.

What is the format for the 2024 Olympic golf events?

Players in both the men’s and women’s events will play a 72-hole strokeplay competition across four days, with gold, silver and bronze medals for each of the top three finishers. There is no cut and in the event of a tie for any of the medals, a sudden death playoff will take place to determine the medalists.

Who are the current Olympic golf gold medallists?

Xander Schauffele and Nelly Korda won the gold medals for Team USA at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Silver went to Rory Sabbatini (Slovakia) and Mone Inami (Japan) respectively, with CT Pan (Chinese Taipei) and Lydia Ko (New Zealand) winning the bronze medals.

A total of 42 different nations were represented.

Who won the medals at Rio 2016?

Justin Rose (GB) and Inbee Park (South Korea) won gold; Henrik Stenson (Sweden) and Lydia Ko (New Zealand) won silver; Matt Kuchar (USA) and Shanshan Feng (China) won bronze.
