Golf loss is solar farm gain in Japan

An interesting story here from Electronics Weekly.

There's a triple victory here:

First, more generation of green power. (As well as tee power, fairway power, and a bit of bunker power if it's not too shaded.)

Second, less water wasted keeping the greens green.

And third, less people playing golf, which "has too much walking to be a good game, and just enough game to spoil a good walk." (Harry Leon Wilson, 1904)
