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

Posted in: Reviews by Jay on September 11, 2009

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.
