Careful With That Club, Craig
Former Cabletron exec tees off on digital golf course.Just like other retired executives, former Cabletron chairman and CEO Craig Benson is heading to the golf course. But in this case, he owns the courseand all of the nifty gadgets on it. Sources say Benson is building a plush, fully networked golf course and country club in his home state of New Hampshire.
The course will include wireless devices at each hole, which will let golfers make lunch reservations at the country clubas they finish up play on the back nine. The wireless links (sorry, bad pun) will use technology that Cabletron acquired when it purchased Digital Equipments networking division.
