Grass is being laid at the Olympic golf course in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The sodding began Tuesday on the eighth hole of the Gil Hanse design that will host golf's return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence.

"We have taken another important step in constructing the Olympic Golf Course today," said Agberto Guimar√£es, Rio 2016 director of sport and paralympic integration, in a release. "The planting of grass is the last construction activity for each hole on the course, following the completion of the earthworks, irrigation and finishing."

The seeding and subsequent growing process is expected to take 11 months.
