About Us

J.R. Mats was the first to introduce a golf mat that could take a real tee at the 2006 PGA show and although that's what got the initial attention the "Real Feel" quickly became the reputation of This great golf mat.
Great family fun with our new Golf Mat and Practice Green!

My husband recently received his Golf Mat and Putting Green purchases from Real Feel Golf Mats. He and our young boys are more than thrilled! They had them out of the boxes before the delivery driver left!

As with any online purchase, my husband was half expecting cheaply-made mediocre quality, but to his surprised, these mats are fantastic! He’s very impressed with the quality, weight and sheer size. He says the Golf Mat feels just like the driving range (but better — he can use his own tees!). I’m happy too because “Dad and the boys” spend more time hitting balls at home than away at the range. I love hearing them playing away in the garage for hours, having fun!

Thanks RF.

The Perfect Practice Mats For Our Training School

The Perfect Practice Mats For Our Training School

Hi Jay,

I did a lot of research looking for the perfect mats for our indoor training center at our golf school. After narrowing my choices to a few companies, it was your testimonials that convinced me to go with your product. After using the mats for over 3 months, I too am a believer and find it necessary to provide my own testimonial. We use the mats every day regardless of weather as we perform all video analysis indoors hitting through 12′ x 12′ garage doors. Not only do they provide a realistic feel, they still look brand new and we haven’t even rotated them yet.

Thanks for making such a great product and best wishes for continued success.

New Golf Mat Twin Combo System

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

New Golf Mat Twin Combo System

The twin combo system is perfect for my uses. I originally thought I only needed the golf mat itself, but that placed the ball on a different level than my feet and was awkward. By being able to move the standing mat anywhere I need compared to the hitting mat, I can place them any distance apart and use any or all of my clubs easily. The hitting mat itself has never moved when hitting balls, that concern can go away completely. The mat has some heft to it and it would take more than a golf club to make it move. As for storage, I believe the two piece combo is easier as well, since they can fit in a tighter space, taking up less room in the garage or shed.

I originally purchased a small, 12” x 24” hitting mat at a retail golf store, not knowing what I needed. The small mat moved after most hits, and began to fray after less than two hours. I returned it for a credit, but was only given a new mat, not a price credit. So I have a useless 12” x 24” mat here at home, it is absolutely no comparison to your product.

Your golf mat is what I really needed.

He Basically Gets To Practice Everyday Of The Week

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

Jay,

My son uses our new golf practice mat all the time. He is on the high school golf team here and we have had a ton of bad weather days. this has come in really handy. He basically gets to practice everyday of the week… even if the weather is bad. We have it set up in our garage. We have a net in there that he hits the balls against.

It looks and feels awesome. You can not even tell that he hits off of it. I thought that you would be able to see scuff marks, but not at all. It feels like a plush fairway on a resort course… not hard on the feet at all.

Fun… since we use it inside it provides the opportunity to hit balls everyday of the week… most importantly on bad weather days here.

We are very happy with the product.

Thank you,

Hit Full Wedge Shots Without The Pain

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

Jay,

I will admit that I initially balked at spending $300 for a 3X5 golf mat but I looked at some mats that were $200 and they were like hitting off concrete. Your mat at $300 seemed like a good deal when I looked around and saw what was out there.

Just received my new mat a couple days ago. It is everything you said it would be! I can hit full wedge swings without feeling that painful wrist and elbow bang that a cheaper driving range mat gives you. I love the plush look and feel of my new mat!! I showed the new mat to my wife and her response was to lie down on it and tell me how soft and comfortable it was.

Perhaps there are additional uses for that mat… Thanks for a great product!

Golf Mat Actually lets me Know when I hit a Fat Shot

Golf Mat Actually lets me Know when I hit a Fat Shot

Hi Jay, I live on a pond, so I bought some floating balls, floating rope and your golf mat. I love your mat. It actually lets me know when I hit a fat shot. I can put a tee right in it, instead of those rubber tees. My friends are very impressed. I knew if I built it, they would come. Thanks.

Customer Drives 200 Miles To Try The Country Club Elite Golf Mat

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

I have been skeptical of golf mats that claim to feel like grass. I love the game of golf and want practice equipment that will help me improve my game. I’ve been through a number of golf mats that had claimed to feel like grass and up until now have been disappointed. Before spending hundreds if dollars on another promise I wanted to “test drive” the Country Club Elite Mat for myself.

I combined a recent trip to visit my daughter in Pennsylvania with a trip to Jay McGrath’s “backyard golf course” with my check book in hand. I told him that if his Country Club Elite mat was as good as he said it was I’d write a check on the spot. I have been working on taking a consistent dollar bill sized divot when striking the ball, so I need a practice mat that provides realistic feedback.

I only needed to take a few swings with my 7-iron to know that I came to the right place. I purchased the 5×5 on the spot – if your looking for a great practice aid you should too.

Cordially,

Thanks To My New Golf Mat I’ve Lowered My Score by 5 Strokes

Thanks To My New Golf Mat I've Lowered My Score by 5 Strokes

I have been using my new golf mat and birdie balls for about 4 weeks now and I absolutely believe they are the best training aid I have ever used. I try and hit them every chance I can the results are that I have lost at least 5 strokes a round.

I have the mat set up at the back of my driveway looking over part of my back yard with 3 targets to shoot to. By the way my 7 year old grand son uses the mat more than I do, we let him hit real golf balls for now but that won’t last much longer.

Thank you,

I Can Hit Off These Golf Mats All Day Without My Hands and Wrists Getting Sore

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

Before The Golf Learning Center got your Country Club Elite Golf Mats I couldn’t practice much because my hands would get sore. Now I can hit off of the mats all day without my hands and wrists getting sore.

10″ x 30″ Hitting Strip Is Perfect To Take To the Golf Range

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on | No Comments

I received my golf mat hitting strip and it is a great product. I took it to the range for the first time the other day because the mats at my local range are hard as rock. I stand on their mat and place my new 10″ x 30″ Country Club Elite hitting strip next to it for hitting. It’s a super easy way to get more out of my driving range practice.

The person in the stall next to me even had to try it out. It is safe to say you will have another order for the small Country Club Elite. It is perfect to take to the driving range.
