Odd unit: EU | UK | US

Golf was highlighted prominently in the official program of the Summer Olympic Games in 1900 and 1904. After a 112-year hiatus, the IOC agreed to reintroduce this event for the 2016 Summer Olympics during its session in Copenhagen in October 2009. It's a fact that golf made a triumphant revival to the Olympics in 2016. Since the 2016 Olympics, qualification has been based on the Men's Official World Golf Rankings and Women's World Golf Rankings, with the top 15 players in each gender automatically qualifying, with a maximum of four players per country, followed by the highest-ranked players from countries that had not yet qualified two players.

This year's Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo will feature this event once again. The COVID-19 pandemic urged the International Olympic Committee to postpone the whole 2020 Olympics until 2021, and while the IOC is ready to go through with the tournament this summer, there are concerns regarding the number of spectators allowed and much of the logistics.

The 72-hole stroke-play championships for both the men's and women's Olympic Games will be held at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Kasahata, Saitama, Japan, about 35 miles northwest of Tokyo. As was the case in Rio, both events will include 60 players from their respective home countries.

Qualification plays an essential part in the selection of players at the Summer Olympics in golf. The International Golf Federation rankings, not any form of the qualifying tournament, were used to select golf for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

With a total of 60 players qualifying in each competition as of June 21, 2021, for men and June 28, 2021, for women. In this practice, the top 15 players from each gender qualified, with a maximum of four golfers per country qualifying. The remaining slots were given to the top-ranked players from nations with less than two golfers qualifying, with a maximum of two per country. According to the IGF, at least one golfer from the host country and one from each continent qualified. Weekly qualifying lists based on current men's and women's rankings were released by the IGF.

Notable winners Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, and Louis Oosthuizen, as well as Masters and US Open winner Dustin Johnson, are likely to refuse to compete in the men's golf tournament at the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo next month.

The men's competition will take place from July 29 to August 1 at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Japan, while the women's competition will take place from August 4 to 7 at the same location.
