Best Golf Mat Under $50

5 posts in this topic

I just recently started taking more of a serious interest in golf. I set up a net in the back yard and have been trying to prepare for the beginning of my golf season (I live in Mass). I was wondering if anyone knew of a good golf mat that will allow me to hit down on the golf ball and isn't going to burn a hole in my pocket. Thanks for the help.

Check out the [URL=http://www.ebay.com/sch/jaymcgolfstuff/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686]Country Club Elite Hitting Strip[/URL] on eBay, or their website [URL=http://www.realfeelgolfmats.com/]Real Feel Golf Mats[/URL]. The hitting strips are priced down to $30. It's the best mat I've tried so far. You will feel it if you hit it fat, while the club sails smoothly through on a good hit. They also seem very durable. I know Golf Evolution use (or used) these mats. http://thesandtrap.com/t/54192/practice-range-hitting-mats http://thesandtrap.com/t/53950/practicing-with-a-net-what-is-your-setup

This is the kind i use, you can practice hitting down on the ball unlike the superthin mats.

I agree with this, but nothing beats real grass for me.

the realfeelgolf mats are the real deal i own one and the strip that zeph was talking about works just as good as the full mat at a fractio of the cost. about durability i saw one of the top 10 golf coachs i cant remember his name from flordia say he has had his for 6 years outside without them being ruined.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
