Men’s golf had an outstanding year with a win and three podiums in the four championship events. As a new Olympic discipline, the sport is familiarising itself with the unique nature of the Olympic multi-sport event environment and how best to engage, monitor and support athletes in the professional environment. Women’s golf continues to show signs of improvement, however their athletes remain some distance from podium potential on their campaign to Rio 2016.

Golf Australia (GA) is actively working to align itself with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. The ASC has been requested to assist GA with a governance review to achieve greater national alignment with its state associations.

GA has undertaken a significant volume of research and strategic development, which has positioned the sport well to deliver new participation products in the coming year. These will target junior, female and casual golfers.
