Golfer hits the ball softly during a training session on the road to Lima 2019
Sport review

Even though golf is a very simple sport, it requires incredible concentration and accuracy. During the Lima 2019 Games, 18 holes will be played. The lower score wins. This is the second edition of the Pan American Games in which golf will be part of the sports program. Golf made its debut in the Pan American Games in Toronto 2015, where Colombia led the medal count with three gold medals. The best amateur and professional golf players are allowed to participate in this edition of the Games. In Lima 2019, this sport will be held at the Lima Golf Club.
