Australian Golf Digest’s Jim Tucker has reported that if Brisbane gets the nod to host the 2032 Olympics, then Royal Queensland will be appointed as the host course for the Olympic golf event.
Brisbane is supposedly the preferred candidate by the IOC at the moment and a final submission with further details has recently been submitted by the Queensland Government.
Tucker reports that Royal Queensland was selected over Royal Pines due to its proximity to Brisbane and space for the extra infrastructure that comes with the Olympic golf event.
Royal Queensland has only been locked in as the course within the vast venue plan in recent weeks for the final submission.
It’s believed Royal Queensland trumped Royal Pines on the Gold Coast for the singular honour of being in the box seat to become Australia’s first Olympic golf club.
The quality of the course and the vast amount of room for grandstands, broadcast facilities and Olympic infrastructure are believed to be among the tie-breaking factors in RQ’s favour.
