This Green Speed Meter (commonly called a Stimpmeter) is a precision tool used to measure the speed of a golf course putting green. It is an industry standard
tool that allows the greenkeeeper to make statistically accurate measurements
of the putting surface speed.
Measurements are taken on a relatively flat part of the golf
putting green. A golf ball is placed on the stimpmeter which is then tilted up
to the angle at which the ball rolls down the meter and on to the green. The
distance travelled by the ball is measured in feet and the process is then
repeated multiple times (in opposite directions) to obtain an average distance.
This average distance is referred to the Green Speed or Pace.
Slow 4.5 feet (1.4 m)
