The men's team was a golf event held as part of the Golf at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. It was the only time a team golf event was held at the Olympics. Three teams of 10 golfers each, all from the United States, competed. The competition was held on September 17, 1904.

Rosters[edit]

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).

Originally only two teams showed up for this event. However, a number of other players were available and formed a team at the last minute. As they were all members of the U.S.G.A. member golf club, they competed under the title of that organization.
