Q: What its the average lifespan? My routine is roughly 1hr 2 to 3 times a week.
A: high volume driving ranges are getting 2-3 years of heavy use out of a 5×5 Country Club Elite Golf Mats and Country Clubs are getting 3-5 years.
So I’d guess you will get 5 years or more with home use. The UV rays take their toll on the fibers, so if you are practicing inside or under cover it wall last even longer. Most ranges leave the mats out all year – even under snow. Of course, the larger size you get will allow you to move around more on the mat extending the life – this is why most ranges order the 5×5 golf mat – so they can rotate 90-degrees.
Q: Does any surface, like concrete, hinder performance?
A: The CCE Golf Mat is designed to work on any flat firm surface. Each golf mat is made with a 5/8″ thick foam cushioning pad underneath. Typically driving ranges place the golf mats on a concrete pad and country clubs may install in a tee line look by lifting the sod and placing on a compacted stone base. Other options inclued:
- laying the mat on a piece of ply-wood ( all weather is best)
- Simply laying on the grass or dirt – this works fine if the are is flat and firm
- I just added some installation pictures and instructions here – clck here to view
Golf Mat Sizes:
Q: I am a PGTAA Master Teaching Professional and need something portable since I teach at student”s homes and in open fields. What would you recommend?
A: Hi Jerry, Thank you for your interest in the Country Club Elite mats for your golf instruction. As far as mat size – I would suggest a 3×5 or the twin combo system for portability. The two piece will shift on you some, so I prefer a 3×5 personally.
The CCE Golf Mats weight about 2 pounds per sq.ft. And I’ve found the easiest way to make it portable is to roll the mats and wrap with two bungee cords – then use these as handles.
I also love the Birdieballs for backyard golf and home golf training. They are limited flight and great for backyard practice. You can hit any club without a net, you feel impact unlike other practice balls, and see the full ball flight.
I find that they work best with a specific target to shoot at.
Please let me know if you have any questions, Thx Jay
Q: I am looking to build an indoor golf range for the winter months, I am looking for a mat that has fairway and rough, and you can use a real tee to put into the turf tee the ball up, I compete in Long Drive and Ive had trouble with other mats moving because of my high swing speed and causing the ball to fall off the tee before impact, which can make it very dangerous, Ive looked around your website and was wondering if you could make any recommendations to me?
A: Hi Chad, You could use the deluxe combo system and I could give you an extra insert of rough (20×36) to fit in the tray for $ 99.00 this mat has a heavy rubber try and you could attache the tray to the floor if you had too. The CCE golf mats take a real tee and we drill them to accomodate rubber range mat tees and our adjustable range mat tee if you would rather use them.
I’m sure my customers would love a few tips on gripping it and ripping it too.
I think the deluxe combo is your best bet because the Stance mat is firmer and has an extra rubber layer on the bottom – so if your doing some major weight shift and tourque this will stay in palace the best and be easier on you ankles than standing and hitting off of a 5×5 cce mat.
Q: How Does your mat compair to other mats on the market ?
A: Our Mat is the most realistic golf mat on the market. Invented by Jay McGrath the owner of J.R. Mats, Inc. The CC Elite mat is currently being used at the facilites of 4 out of the top 5 teachers on the Golf Digest Top Teacher list. We have been copied by many but yet to be duplicated. Some comepitors have been brazen enough to steal copy and pictures directly from our websites. So buyer beware! Here are some golf mat reviews of the CCE Mat Vs. Others.
