Hi Rainer,

I have to agree with Rasmus, the question is, do you really want to sync to
google calendar or do you want to sync your smartphone calendar (most
likely an Android-based phone) with org-mode?
In case of the last, you might omit using google calendar completely and
use another service with caldav support. If you have access to an own
server (a PC which can be reached from the internet), you might be able to
even install your own solution.
There is an android app [1] which allows syncing of caldav-servers with the
Android calendar in the same way like the google calendar (in the
background, without any user-interaction after initial set-up).
Unfortunately, it is not free, but I would say it is worth the money.

E.g. I use SOGo + org-caldav + CalDAV-Sync to sync between my Android-based
phone, a web-based calendar and org-mode. Works great.

BTW. There is another Android app (CardDAV), which does the same for your
address book.

Hope that helps a bit


[1] CalDAV-Sync beta

CC: Completely OT but it seems you use notmuch too, did you manage to get
address-completion working in notmuch?
