Rio Interactive Golf Zone Strikes Chord with Fans

Rio-Interactive-Zone-IMG_1672Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Golf proved a big hit with Olympic spectators in Rio with upwards of 1,000 a day trying out the sport in the tented village during both the men’s and women’s events.
A number of activities were installed by Provision Events to help generate interest in the sport among Brazilians.
As well as cheering on the stars of the game, fans attending the golf were able to use two golf simulators, test out a six-hole putting course, a long putt hole plus get some coaching with PGA qualified pros in the specially designed nets.
Nick Clemens, Founding Partner of Provision Events, told Golf Business News: “The interactive zone has been a massive hit at the golf. We have had over 1,000 people of all ages per day having a go at the various activities and for most this was their first go at golf.
“The atmosphere has been brilliant and working alongside the Brazilian Golf Confederation, this has been a great team effort and a good partnership.”
