I just read that the golf course they created for the Rio Olympics is being converted into a Truck Rally Course.
Wow....first time golf has been in the Olympics since 1904, so Brazil built a course to host it.
Only to destroy it less than a year later....amazing!

The article states it's too expensive to keep up and not enough Brazilians play golf.
Such a shame....

That stinks, but it was bound to happen. I didn't t think it was going to happen this fast though! Such a beautiful course ruined already, sad.

The the Olympics in general for you. Cost a lot to host, countries make some good money. Then everything becomes a graveyard

It is too bad but golf costs too much for the 3rd world countries.
Monster Truck should be the new Olympics sport instead of golf :)
