By James K. RaffinThe Federal Communications Commission announced today that it has awarded a $30 million grant to a private company to develop a wireless broadband network for golf courses in California, according to a press release from the FCC.
The grant is for a $3.4 million project at the California Golf and Country Club, which will serve as a test bed for a wireless network for the next generation of golf courses, according the FCC statement.
The first of these will be built at the Oakhurst Golf Club in San Francisco.
The Oakhurst golf course, the third oldest in the world, opened in 1923.
The last remaining course in the United States to be built on private land is the Golf Course at Hockley, in Texas, which was completed in 2005.
