Who doesn’t love getting out on a golf course to hit some balls? As the spring weather is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are happy to get out of our houses and get out there. While we certainly enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful surroundings and the peacefulness of a golf course, we don’t typically think much about what makes everything on the golf course run as seamlessly as it appears to.
Golf Courses need Phones & Internet at Remote Buildings
Golf courses are spread out over a large area and most often, they have several remote buildings that are generally not connected using underground or overhead cables. Some of the buildings and areas that golf courses might have include maintenance buildings, garage areas where the golf carts are kept, restaurants and snack buildings/ areas and irrigation buildings. There may even be a security gate area or two.
Generally a golf course would have to pay for Internet access and phone service for their main building where the offices are located. Remote buildings and people located throughout the golf course would communicate back to the main building/ clubhouse using two-way radios. But what if you need Internet access at a remote building? How can that be accomplished? It’s simply not feasible or attractive to run overhead / underground cables to all of the remote buildings. Digging up the ground on the expensively maintained turf to run a phone line might not be a preferred method of connectivity.
