The CIST/883 Golf Course Tester designed and manufactured by SD Instrumentation Ltd provides an easy and straightforward means for measuring the variations in strength on fairways and for helping determine the uniformity of an area.
The equipment consists of a two 0.5 Kg hammer probes that operate independently within a vertical guide tube. A golf ball size dome probe and a flat ended probe are provided with the system. The probe falls through the guide tube when released and strikes the surface under test, decelerating at a rate determined by the stiffness of the golf course surface within the region of impact.
The readout is clamped to the guide tube and the displayed reading is viewed from the top during use. Single button operation design provided for easy use.
