The Olympic golf course that will welcome the sport back to the Games in Rio de Janeiro will only be tested by nine Brazilians in an exhibition closed to the public. Rio 2016 organizers confirmed on Friday that the test event on March 8 will feature no more than nine local players, five men and four women, in an exhibition in the stroke play format.

Brazil has little tradition in golf, a sport that was removed from the Olympic program for the 1908 Games. The best ranked among those invited is No. 588-ranked Alexandre Rocha. He is the third best Brazilian in the world rankings. The best Brazilian female in the rankings is Miriam Nagl, No. 482 in the world.

Rio’s Olympic golf course was handed to Games organizers in November, after a series of problems with environmental lawsuits, land ownership disputes and doubts it even needed to be built.

The course designed by American Gil Hanse covers 970,000 square meters and will have capacity for 15,000 fans. A delegation from the International Golf Federation (IGF) will be present to observe, Rio 2016 said in a statement.

There will be 104 volunteers in the test event and players will be in groups of three. Claudia Guedes, the Rio 2016 sport manager for golf, said that the main tests are for the course itself and the results system.

“It’s a tough course, there is quite a lot of wind, so it will bring the best out of the players,” Guedes said.
