Great swing mat for more experienced golfers

I am no Jack Nicklaus, but I can hit off this mat and it feels like those driving mats they use on the range, only smaller. I use this in my backyard, and it lets me do a full drive on it without worrying about ripping it to shreds as I have done to other swing mats. I buy one every year since I do wear it down smooth, but if you ever go to the driving range, you will see the driving mats there wear-out as well. This is what I think:

Good but it’s small

This hitting mat is perfect for what I wanted for hitting into a net in our back yard. The feel is great and it is very durable so far. Don’t be surprised though, it is very small. This is no driving range mat, it’s only a bit larger than a piece of paper. Then again if you aren’t precise enough to hit a ball off of a mat this size, you have larger problems than a hitting mat will solve. It does weigh enough to keep from moving when you hit off of it unless you take a really big divot.

Perfect mat that has met my need

This mat has been perfect for what I needed. I’m a high handicap golfer that is just getting back into the game. I recently purchased a golf net 

Excellent Mat

The first one I received was used so I returned it for a replacement. So far, it is holding up very well — even with my modifications for using it at the driving range. I removed the wooden or plastic tee holder and drilled two more holes in it the mat spaced apart evenly. I then inserted 3 rubber tees I also bought. The mat is solid enough so that even when I put down 3 balls on my tees and hit it, the mat doesn’t move or shake enough to knock of the other 2 balls. This is exactly what I was looking for. Some of the other mats may be too flimsy to accommodate this use. I haven’t used the wooden tee holder that comes with the mat so I can’t speak on that. Despite the wrong start by the vendor (Amazon) when I received the used mat, I am pleased with this mat and would strongly recommend it.

Great Mat

It is a great little hitting mat. I’ve purchased two now one for home and one for work. I’m more of a digger and the mat has withstood all the abuse and beatings I have given it over the last few months. The only complaint is that the little tee holder because I got tired of chasing my tees after I launched them. To fix that I picked up a 5 pack of 2″ rubber tees. Photo attached is a picture of me (camera on the ground) launching the ball. You can faintly see the club and the ball moving.

Good quality

Don’t let the size fool you. It is quite rugged will take a lot of punishment even when not using tees. Anchor it in the turf with a 40d or 50d nail or spike and you are ready. I would advise buying a set of rubber tees (the kind you see at driving ranges) unless your willing to break and replace a wooden one after every tee shot. The rubber one fits neatly into the hole where you would otherwise place a wooden tee in the original holder.

Great portable aid

This little mat is surprisingly heavy duty. Just carrying it around you can feel the heft, and it stays in place nicely when you swing at it. Out in the yard it definitely doesn’t go anywhere, and on concrete it shifts only a couple inches. For such a small pad, this is impressive. One thing I did to help cushion the impacts in the garage is place it on a horsestall mat that I use for dropping weights while working out, and it feels a lot better. I typically take decent divots out of the grass (I’m not the kind of player who can ‘pick’ it cleanly off a smooth surface), so I am thumping on this unit fairly hard with each swing. The rubber base is incredibly thick and durable, and so far the grassy surface has held up well (about 5 months of use). In the past I’ve had problems with tearing up the artificial surface on mats fairly quickly, but not with this one. A side benefit is that I can remove the tee holder and take it to my local driving range where it fits perfectly in their mats. Now I can use my own regular tees to hit off of instead of a rubber tee.

Realistic feel, a little small.

Realistic feel, a little small. Two real problems with this: the height differential between the ball/surface and your feet/surface and the size of the hitting surface. The actual hitting surface it 7″ x 13″. Pretty small, considering. Miss hits are going to grab a piece of the ground (or deck in my case). Would be perfect at like 3′ by 5′ where you could stand on the turf at the same height as the ball. I use this on my deck, coupled with the Calloway net (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005THTIES?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01). The provided tee holder is wonderful, with one small exception. You’re really limited to the depth of the tee holder before it bottoms out on whatever hard surface you’re placing it on. No fault of the manufacturer. But, if you’re using the 3 1/4 inch tees like me, you’re not able to place the tee as far in the ‘ground’ as you normally would, so the ball is higher than you would normally place it.
