Total Area of a Golf Green

Measure the length from the green from the center to the edge at every 10° around the center to yield 36 observations.  Then, compute the mean of measurements, using that mean as the radius.

Longhand: Mean Radii = (the sum of radii) / (the sum of measurements taken) and Area = 3.14 x (Mean Radii x Mean Radii
