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.

Almost like taking a divot - replicates what you get on the course.

Very Realistic. It helps me with my teaching. The best part is that it's exactly the same reward and penalty for accurate ball/turf contact.

We use Mats for 'Driver Drill' in our golf schools. They have a great feel. I've been incredibly pleased with the product and would recommend it to anybody.

The Best Mat for indoors - they are Fantastic! I really like that if you do hit behind the ball - you know that you did.

Tremendous feedback - Our Members are using the range more and having more fun. The mats take a real tee and let you go down and get the golf ball.

We are happy to be using the Country Club Elite Golf Mats at our indoor facility. They are the closest thing to being outside on the fairway. These mats provide a very realistic playing surface and the 'give' helps reduce the shock at impact most driving range mats have.We are happy to be using the Country Club Elite® Golf Mats at our indoor facility.

The feel on impact of the ball and club is unbelievable. If the contact is good, it feels like the fairways I play on and if contact is too heavy, you will feel the difference...The feel on impact of the ball and club is unbelievable.

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...It looks and feels awesome. You can not even tell that he hits off of it.

Jay, I am more than pleased with my mat. I was very impressed with the quality. It is so dense, you can bury your fingers in it. It holds tees in different positions very well.Jay, I am more than pleased with my mat. I was very impressed with the quality. It is so dense, you can bury your fingers in it.

Thanks for the great golf mat Jay! It is as close as I've seen to acting like the real turf. I have added it to my golf teaching bag.Thanks for the great golf mat Jay! It is as close as I've seen to acting like the real turf. I have added it to my golf teaching bag.

My personal barefoot beer drinking driving range.  I really enjoy the new mat. I am able to hit down & through the mat. It's the same feeling as hitting off a well maintained high end fairway. I am sure to get many years of enjoyment out of this backyard golf upgrade.  I started at 9AM and finished about 3PM.  I got everything for the install at Home Depot for about $200. I love it, Thanks for everything.My personal barefoot beer drinking driving range. I really enjoy the new mat. I am able to hit down & through the mat.

During the winter months here in Colorado I can now go 'hit the range' regardless of the weather outside.  It's very convenient to have the setup right here so I don't waste the time driving to a range and back again. Finally, what I find myself doing now is reading articles or swing tips online, then being able to head right into the garage and practice what I just read. It is as convenient as having a full range in the backyard! I like the feel to stand on and when swinging through the ball. It has the feel of a fairway, and if I hit it fat, I know it. I also love the fact that I can put a tee in the mat and hit my driver. I am very happy I found your site on the web and ordered the mat from you.During the winter months here in Colorado I can now go 'hit the range' regardless of the weather outside.

I had Given Up Home... Until I Saw The Country Club Elite Golf Mat

Dear Mr. McGrath,

It was my pleasure to meet you at this years PGA show. Thank you so much for your help with our custom MEGSA Mats and also introducing me to your new Country Club Elite Mats. As you know we run multiple golf academies and have been looking for an acceptable synthetic hitting turf option for years. I had given up hope until seeing your product. It provides a true feel with true results especially on a “fat-shot”. We plan on installing your product at two of our academies this year with more to come. Best wishes for your continued success.

Sincerely,

Mike Bender
