8th March 2020 – ‘Smiler’ Perry Digidet

Last February I was lucky enough to do a presentation in Iceland about Royal Cinque Ports. Speaking also was an incredibly interesting Dutchman called William Boogaarts who introduced me to this fascinating invention to which he kindly gave me the blueprint:


This invention basically counts grass! A mobile phone sits on a cradle and takes photos at various points of the green. These photos can then be blown up on computer and a percentage of different grass types can be calculated. from this we can benchmark progress and in our case the progress would be introducing more fescue in to the greens and reducing the amount of annual meadow grass. Each tapestry pin points at a blade of grass.


The design was shown to Michael Perry and he produced this in no matter of time. I am incredibly grateful to Michael for this and would like to thank him for this along with all of the work he does for the club behind the scenes.
