Is WiFi on a golf course a good thing or just a distraction?
As the game of golf becomes increasingly popular around the world, some courses are beginning to offer WiFi as a perk for players. However, not everyone is convinced that this is a good idea.
On the one hand, WiFi can be seen as a valuable amenity for golfers. It can allow them to stay connected with family and friends while they’re out on the course, and it can also be a useful tool for keeping track of scores and leaderboards.
On the other hand, there are those who believe that WiFi is nothing more than a distraction from the game itself. They argue that it takes away from the relaxation and enjoyment that comes with playing golf in nature, and it can also lead to people being more focused on their screens than on the people they’re playing with.
The UK has the largest number of registered golf course in Europe so we obviously love the sport and have time to play it. Since Covid forced us all to stay home for prolonged periods of time, we’ve all become used to be connected 24×7. Now more people expect to be connected everywhere they go.
One of the main challenges with WiFi on a golf course is getting power and network connectivity where you need it. Castra Solutions can provide a wirefree solution with Solar powered WiFi that uses Wireless point to multipoint links for connectivity.
