This aerial photo was recently released by the PGA as was the initial course design by American Gil Hanse:

The course is being built at Reserva de Marapendi in Barra da Tijuca, the district of Rio de Janeiro. Let’s hope they finish it in time with all of the public difficulties they’ve already faced.
