The Royal Queensland Golf Club has confirmed its position as the chosen host venue for golfing competition as part of Brisbane’s bid to host the 2032 Olympic Games.

With the full International Olympic Committee set to make a deciding vote on the location of the 2032 Games this week, Royal Queensland will become the first Olympic golf venue in Australia if the Brisbane bid is successful.

If Brisbane is appointed the Games host city, the Club has announced that its facilities and the course will receive the required resources for the event and, as it says, “to continually improve each aspect which will ultimately benefit every member on a daily basis”.

Royal Queensland Golf Club advised “with the Club’s successful business model and strong trading conditions, the Board is about to approve a record course improvement budget for 2022.”

While other locations, including Royal Pines on the Gold Coast, have reportedly been considered at the Games venue it is believed that Royal Queensland’s course quality paired with its vast amount of room for grandstands, broadcast facilities and Olympic infrastructure were among the deciding factors in choosing the venue.
