with True Divot Action For Realistic Practice – And It Even Takes A Real Tee!”
Dear Fellow Golfer,
You’ve probably seen a lot of the garbage (literally) that the big retail golf stores are trying to pass off as golf mats. Most of these companies actually use the scrap from football fields or discontinued artificial turf products – chop them down into small mats – put them in glossy 4-color boxes – and try to pass them off as golf mats. Most of these products were not designed to take the repetitive impact of a golf club and tear up withing a few weeks.
I started manufacturing high end commercial driving range mats back in 2000 utilizing patented fiber blends and in-house tufting technology combining heavy duty mono-filament (fishing line) fibers (at that time US Patent # US6106921 A).
My first product the Flip-It™ Mats where extremely durable but hard as HE!! to hit off of. Many country clubs and higher end golf courses refused to use mats at all because the industry offering was so poor.
We have displayed annually at the PGA Merchandise Show and I was proud to introduce The Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mats® at the 2006 world wide PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL where The Country Club Elite® Mat was considered for the number one product featured in the New Product Pavilion. The Country Club Elite® Mat was also overwhelmingly well received that year at the National Golf Industry Show in Atlanta Georgia.
We have displayed annually at the PGA Merchandise Show since 2000. In 2005 after listening to PGA professionals demand for a better golf mat – something more realistic and easier on the body to hit off of, I developed the Country Club Elite® Golf Mat and introduced it at the PGA show in January 2006. It was “the first mat that could take a real tee” and drew a lot of attention.
The buzz about the product was overwhelming and word spread like the old commercial “I’ll tell 2 friends” … “I’ll tell 2 friends. My sincere thanks to Top Teaching Professional Mike Bender and PGA President Jack Connelly who helped get the ball rolling over 9-years ago.
The internet has also been extremely helpful allowing me to bring the industries best golf mats directly to you, so that you can buy the best golf practice mats direct from the manufacturer for your specific needs.

“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.

“A little over a year ago I invested in one of your Golf Mats. The product has surpassed all my expectations and then some. Being a retired person affords me the opportunity of using the mat almost daily hitting several hundred balls at each session. The mat shows zero wear even though I have not rotated it. My sincere thanks and congratulations for giving the golfing public such a marvelous training aid. Continued success with your mats.”
If you ever hit irons off of a Driving Range Mat you know that a “fat shot” will look better off of a typical driving range mat than it ever will on the fairway. This is because the club will bounce and slide across the top of most mats giving false results – especially to fat shots. This is commonly referred to as the “drop-kick” effect problem that most mats have.
Most golf mats use a rubber tee of a predetermined height forcing you to adjust to it. The New Country Club Elite® Real Feel Long Dense Fiber System-TM Takes a Real Tee® allowing you to choose and vary your tee height for various clubs. Rubber tees can obstruct your club-head at the point of impact giving you a different feel than you get hitting off of a real tee.
Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mats®’ Long-Dense-Fiber-System solves the “fat shot problem” most mats have. The Long Dense Fiber System approximates the feel of a lush fairway. If you hit down on the ball properly the club passes freely allowing you to Swing Down and Through® the top fibers of the mat with True Divot Action®.
However, you will feel the difference on a “fat shot” because if you go to deep the Long-Dense-Fiber-System will slow the club head down as if you’ve taken a deep divot or “chunked” a shot.
Because the fibers are so long and dense they absorb and dissipate the blow for immediate and realistic feedback at the point of impact AND ELLIMINATES THE PROBLEMATIC “BOUNCE” OF MOST MATS.
The Country Club Elite’s® Long Dense Fiber System is specifically designed to absorb the blow of a golf-shot as true fairway would providing the most realistic feel that a synthetic turf golf mat can.
With a typical golf mat the club would “bounce” on the mat for an unnatural feel and false results. Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mat® is made from unique “spring-set” grass like fibers that move, absorb, and dissipate the downward blow of a golf-shot simulating the feel of taking a divot.
Since the Fiber system is so long it actually lets you Swing down and through® the ball so you can practice proper “Ball-Turf” impact which dictates the quality of a golf shot – Better practice means better results.
Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mats® give you a true feel so that you know if you have struck the ball fat, thin, or just right.
This is a brand new and revolutionary design for a golf mat. The unique Long Dense Fiber System incorporates spring-set heavy denier mono-filament grass fibers packed in so tightly that it can even hold a real wooden tee. The Long Dense Fiber is bonded to 5/8″ thick polyethylene foam using a specially engineered urethane stabilizing layer. The foam is designed to for added dimensional stability (As opposed to just using the turf itself). The secret of Country Club Elite® Golf Mat is the combination of these three components resulting in the best golf mat available anywhere.When The Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mat® is struck during a golf-shot the fibers will absorb and dissipate the blow as if taking a divot. However, if you hit a “fat” shot the fibers will duplicate the resistance you would feel “chunking” some real sod.
“Your J.R. Mat has been a pleasure to use. Because of the depth of the artificial turf, I can practice on my deck without any problem or feeling of hurting my left elbow. I can hit down on the ball, thus encouraging effective ball striking.
It has been a joy to practice and get some good exercise without a trip to the driving range.
Thank you for making such a great product that makes it fun to practice.”
We received the mat and it is just as advertised. Works great. Thanks! We would like to order a second one now that we see that the product is as high quality as it is. Please process another order for another 5×5 mat.
I’ve been using my new mat it’s AMAZING. (the Other guys fell apart)
Starting last year I decided that during the winter I was going to hit golf balls into a net down in my basement for a minimum of 15 minutes per day to stay prepared for the next season. I bought a mat for $59 thinking that this mat, which was fairly thick would serve me for several years and give me a fairly true feel of hitting the ball from the fairway. The first problem was with that much use the mat started coming apart and I had to replace it the first winter. The second problem was that I could not tell when I hit the ball fat because the mat unlike natural turf allowed the club to slide across it. Your mat allowed me to feel when I hit the ball fat because it slowed down my club much like natural turf. I can also hit down on the ball with your mat without worrying about damaging the mat. That mat is durable. I’ve used it for a few weeks now and cannot detect any wear. I’m practicing better and more productively.
Improve your golf swing in your own back yard with your own Country Club Elite® Golf Mat.
Finally a golf practice mat that lets you “Hit-Down on the golf ball” for a true feel and realistic practice.
Help reduce your risk of golf range practice mat injury with Country Club Elite® Real Feel’s forgiving Long Fiber System.

For less than a brand new driver (do you really need one?) you could have a commercial grade revolutionary Country Club Elite® Golf Mat that will provide you a training tool to help improve your swing.
Country Club Elite® Real Feel Mats are typically sold commercially as 5′ x 5′ and larger. I recognize the fact that this size may be larger than necessary for home use, so I’m making some special “consumer sizes” available to you on this web site.
For as little as $47.00 you can own a Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mat™ and start improving your golf game. You will recoup your investment with the money saved on range balls every time practice with your new Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mat™ (Not to mention the money you may win from your friends on the course). More importantly you will practice more since you will be able to hit balls in your own back yard (without taking divots), garage, shed, or basement. If your as busy as I am, I’m sure you don’t practice your golf shots as often as you would like – now you can hit 30 balls in less than 10 minutes at lunch, after work, or on the weekend whenever you can squeeze it in. I know I hit a few hundred balls a week more than I ever have and it is starting to show on the course – Since I started practicing in my backyard i’m scoring better, having more fun, and hitting a lot more “golf-shots”.
If you don’t agree that your new Country Club Elite® Golf Mat is the best golf mat that you have ever hit a ball off of and you are not 100% completely satisfied, simply send it back for a courteous, no hassle, prompt refund. No other golf mat manufacturer that I know offers this type of guarantee. You have absolutely nothing to lose.

I’ll send you a Free Sleeve of the best limited-flight practice balls that I have ever used. To hit them is to love them. They feel like a real golf ball at impact but because of the design, they only fly for a short distance (about 40 yards). I couldn’t even hit a full wedge to my synthetic practice green before Birdie Ball, now I can even hit my driver. The hang time is great, so you can thoroughly enjoy a good shot. They also make a really cool “turbine sound” (kids love them) as they fly. They truly make a wonderful golf training aid because the flight is so true — you will know if you sliced it, hooked it or caught it just right.

The JC Video Analysis software allows for slow motion viewing, frame by frame analysis, and side-by-side comparison of your swing along with being compared to what the pro’s do.
SIZING HINTS – If you want to hit driver we recommend a 5’mat in the heel-to-toe direction (3’x5′,4’x5, 5×5′). Most golf driving ranges use a 5′x5′ range mat. My daughter is 8-years old and 4′ – 2″ tall (today) – She can hit every club in her bag off of the 3′x4′. The advantage of a square mat is that you can rotate it and hit off of all 4 sides to increase the mats’ life. Also, if you want to hit to various targets a larger mat will let you shift your stance on top of the mat more easily.

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.”

“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.”
Belfair Golf Learning Center, SC
In the spring of 2007 we ordered one of your Country Club Elite Mats along with one True Strike Golf Mat and one Fiberbuilt Golf Mat. My Members hit off of the three test mats for the full 2007 season and I’m happy to tell you that your mats won the side by side member test hands down.
My members really like the feel of the hitting surface and love the fact that they can use their own tees in it.
Enclosed is the order for 20 more units of your mat system for our range.
“Jay, after putting your Country Club Elite Mat to the test I would like to order some more (order enclosed). We purchased one of your Country Club Elite Mats this past spring and my members have hit off of it for most of the season. The membership is very pleased with the product and insisted that I order more for thecoff-season so that they can take advantage of the warm spells and practice their swings. Thanks for putting out such a great product.”
