Country Club Elite® Golf Mat Review

This is a golf mat review of our Country Club Elite® Golf Mat sent in from Keith!

      “Nothing comes close to the quality, durability, or feel!”


Hi Jay,


Here is a picture of my set-up. The pin is 90 yards from the mat. I dug out and put 2 inches of crusher run rock as a base for drainage. Think this will prolong life of base. I also keep it covered with a tarp.


I am extremely pleased with your mat. There is nothing that comes close to the quality, durability, or feel of your product available at local golf shops.

      “Truly lives up to its promises”

Results of having the opportunity to practice more are obvious. Thanks again for providing a product over the internet that truly lives up to its promises.

Golf Mat Review – ‘Thanks to My Practice Mat I’m Playing Better on the Course!’

Doug wrote us this golf mat review after using our Country Club Elite® to practice his chipping and pitching game! 




Enclosed are photos of me practicing chipping/pitching with my Real Feel Golf Mat®

     “Getting up and down better than ever. Great product!”

The first photo is with me chipping from my driveway to a target in my front lawn.

Chipping off of my 3×5 Practice Mat









The second is me hitting to a far target from my neighbor’s sidewalk across the street (my neighbor let’s me do this!) into my front lawn! I can actually move up the sidewalk to the left and angle into my yard up to 45 yards away!

Practicing a farther chip shot









The third photo is me hitting to a medium length target, again across the street on my neighbor’s sidewalk.

    “I really like to practice on my Country Club Elite Mat — I can duplicate the results on the golf course.”

I am pretty busy, but by chipping/pitching 60 balls a day (minimum! Sometimes 90 or 120 balls!) I can score pretty well on “ups and downs” when I make it to the course.

Golf Mat Review – “Great to Get Back in the Swing!”

Lynn wrote this golf mat review after purchasing our Country Club Elite® Golf Mat!


The 3×5 Country Club Elite® practice mat is large enough to hit driver


      “Your Golf Mat is Great!”



I hope you can use these pictures of an old man. I just turned 60 and just got back into golf after a 20-year-break.

As a retired undertaker, I need all the help I can fine. After 40 years of digging 6-foot holes for my friends, it is a welcome change to dig divots with my friends and talk about the pretty young girls who play golf today and lie about the good old days!!

      “The quality and durability are the best I have ever seen!”

Your Golf Mat is Great!!

The quality and durability are the best I have ever seen.

I’m trying to teach my 26-year-old son how much fun golf is and we have enjoyed your golf mat.

The feel is great and each day I try to hit at least 10 shots per club in my bag to try and get back into the swing. I will be advertising to all the folks I know here in East Texas for you.

Best regards from your undertaker friend,

Lynn M. Laird

P.S. My wife said thank you! Without your golf mat I was making a mess out of our backyard!

P.P.S. Remember a bad day of golf with your toes down is better than toes up at your friendly undertakers

Country Club Elite® vs The Other Guys – “Great Quality, Great Service, Superior to Competitors!”

Buck wrote us complementing the quality of  our golf mat … after first purchasing a competitors mat and having a poor experience.

       “The other product was not sold as advertised”


I had a bad experience ordering a mat from X.X.XXXXX, and would prefer not to go through it again (product not sold as advertised)!

The other guys mat I received was not as advertised, and they did not care. I ordered a mat they advertised to be 1.5″ thick and professional quality. The mat they delivered, however, was 0.75″ thick and felt light and flimsy — despite the high price tag. I emailed X.X.XXXXX and asked for an explanation as to why the product was not as advertised. I also expressed surprise that such a mat could command such a high price.

Rather than explain themselves, they attributed the inferior product to a shipping error, and refused to do anything else to maintain my business or restore my confidence in their product. They simply conceded defeat and had UPS pick the mat back up a week later.

Thanks Jay.



After purchasing a Country Club Elite® Golf Mat, he wrote us this:

      “Unlike your competitors, your product shipped quickly, arrived as-advertised, and your customer service has been first-rate.”

Hi Jay,

I am very impressed with your Country Club Elite® Golf Mat!

I’ve had a few days to hit off your mat and am very impressed! The nice heavy rubber base does not slip and provides a good cushion, even when I’m hitting off a concrete slab.

As promised, you can tell when you hit a clean shot versus when you catch it fat.

The pre-drilled tee holes and plastic tee holder are another unexpected bonus!

Unlike your competitors, your product shipped quickly, arrived as-advertised, and your customer service has been first-rate. Thanks for the bonus DVD, too.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to doing business with your company again.




Buck found our Country Club Elite® to be superior to our competitors – Hopefully you will too!

We have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee (that we actually honor) and would love to work with you!

Golf Mat Review – “This Mat Tells Me When I Hit it Fat, and Takes a Real Tee!”

Bob  wrote us this golf mat review after purchasing a Country Club Elite® practice mat for his backyard. We love what he did did with it.

      “I love your mat!”

Hi Jay!

I live on a pond, so I bought some floating balls, floating rope, and your golf mat.

I love your mat.

Backyard Aquatic Driving Range

It actually lets me know when I hit a fat shot. I can put a tee right in it, instead of rubber tees, too!

My friends are very impressed. I knew if I built it, they would come.

Country Club Elite® Golf Mat Review – Best on the Market!

Here is a golf mat review of our Country Club Elite®! This was sent to us from Jack Connelly, former PGA of America President (2001-2003) and Head Professional at Huntingdon Valley CC, PA!

      “The best artificial surface on the market!”

Hi Jay,


I wanted to let you know that I truly believe your new Country Club Elite® Golf Mat is the best artificial surface on the market. We installed 24 of your mats this spring to create a tee line for outings and grass tee relief as needed.


     “The feel really is REAL!”

The product still looks like new and our members love it. It really does eliminate the problems common with most mats — there is no bounce and the feel really is REAL!

     “The response has been sooo good!”

I was concerned about forcing members to hit off of mats since we have always had a natural grass practice range. But the response has been sooo good that some of my membership would prefer to hit off of the mats even when they don’t have to.


Please feel free to use me as a reference. I have already recommended you and your product to a number of clubs.


Thanks again for a great product.

“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.

“Rarely does a purchase give one long term pleasure over many years and your mat has done this for me.”

Jay– I remember like it was yesterday that afternoon I spent with you test driving your practice mat in your back yard . (Probably 8, 9 years ago).
I purchased it on the spot and started beating on it, mostly outside,back in CT, during that and all subsequent golf seasons and in my basement in some off-seasons.
I recently moved and the mat moved with me into my new basement practice facility.
The hitting surface is virtually unchanged, no thanks to severe summer sun exposure every year and several winters when I just left it outside to await the next warm golf season.
It STILL tells me when I’ve hit the ball fat. And when I pure it, it tells me that as well.
On a more personal, though philosophical, note, I want to salute your initial and ongoing rationality in all you had to do to create the product I purchased lo these many years. wish you continued success in the future. You deserve it. Excelsior!

Skytrak Simulator Room Review

Skytrack Launch Monitor review

“The SkyTrak really meets my needs”

for the following reasons:

  1. Easy to set up and use.
  2. Plenty of data that allows me to compare from shot to shot and from club to club.
  3. Multiple shot tracing options. (Just like on TV!)
  4. Options to compete with others, such as closest to the pin.
  5. Multiple options for purchasing and using golf simulator software. I use TheGolfClub.
  6. Reads the ball, not the club, so it is more accurate.
  7. Less expensive than other launch monitors I priced.


How To Build A Cheap Golf Simulator Room

I used two scraps or plywood I had laying around, but cutting 4’x8’x3/4″ thick piece of plywood in half would work great. I glued and screwed the pieces together and covered it with a piece of green, 1/4″ cheap artificial grass carpet from Lowe’s.  My whole system including the hitting mat, Skytrak, computer, projector, screen, netting, etc, all came in under $3000, which pleased me greatly.

I have attached a pic of me using the Real Feel Golf Mats® hitting strip / adjustable Tee Range Mat Combo purchased from you. This set up is in my basement. I live in Iowa and you can appreciate the impact on my game of being able to hit shots year round. You will notice that I constructed an elevated area to stand on which brings me up to the same level as the hitting strip. This was easily constructed from 1 4×8 sheet of plywood and some green carpet which was glued and stapled to the plywood.


This set up is ideal for me in several ways. The built-in, adjustable, and reusable tee on one end, means that I just set the height and go! No more finding the tee and pushing it back in the mat, no more broken tees! It is the same height every time, and I have been using the same tee for hundreds of shots with no sign of wear. This system is also much less expensive than a 5×5 piece of RealFeel mat.


When I want to hit iron shots, I simply slide the hitting strip backwards and hit off of the mat itself. I have had this mat for more than a year now, and have hit 1000″s of shots with it. It has lots of wear left! This system works particularly well when using the course simulation feature of my SkyTrak. Sliding the mat back and forth so easily allows me to “play” both iron shots and tee shots with ease.


Hitting from the mat has had a positive training effect on my game beyond the extra repetitions allowed from having this setup in my basement. I was initially concerned with how “divots” might work on the RealFeel mat. I do have a rather upright swing, and was concerned that the “bounce” I experience on other types of mats, might not be ideal. The RealFeel mat accepts my “digging” style by accurately giving me a “fat” shot when I hit behind the ball. It also “trains” me to swing on a more shallow plane, producing better shots. After a winter of this “training”, my irons flew higher and straighter.


In summary, I am a very happy user of theReal Feel Golf Mats® hitting strip with the Adjustable Tee System. Thank you for your help in deciding what to purchase, and for the support after the sale. If this picture is not perfect for your use, please suggest how I might improve it.
