DatesSeptember 17–24

At the 1904 Summer Olympics, two golf events were contested – men's individual and team tournaments. The competitions were held from September 17, 1904 to September 24, 1904.

It was the second and final appearance of the sport at the Olympics. The men's team event was new, replacing the women's individual. The men's individual event was switched to a match play tournament rather than the stroke play used four years earlier.

  1. The IOC medalist database lists an American team as winning the bronze medal. Like all other teams in the database, the team is not named beyond "United States of America III" (the gold and silver medal teams are I and II, respectively). Unlike the other two teams, however, there are no participants listed in the bronze-medal team. The list of golfers on the USGA team, and the names of the golf associations sponsoring all three teams, can be found in other sources.
