What You Should Know When Shopping for a Golf Mat for Irons


When searching for a golf mat for irons, you need to take into consideration on what type of surface it will be used. Except in the case of the DivotHit (below), you should consider a 4'x6' or larger mat if you are using a driver with a shaft longer than 47", or if you are taller than 6' 4". The descriptions for each golf mat for irons below should be detailed enough to help you make your purchasing decision.

DivotHit Portable Golf Mat - This is a great concept you really should consider. It is a small mat made in two pieces held together with bungie cords. This creates a moving divot that always returns in place. It can be used anywhere and is the perfect tool to build confidence that you can take to the course.

Skillbuilder Sports Equipment carries Performa brand golf mats.

Performa Residential Golf Mats - This model is a good choice for a long lasting backyard mat. The turf is long wearing and crush resistant because it is thicker than similar golf mats. The turf is ½”pile and the mat has a polyurethane foam rubber backing to provide cushioning. Sizes available: 1x2, 3x4, 3x5, 4x4, 4x5, 4x6, 5x5.

Performa Commercial Poly Mats - This mat is sold to driving ranges and individuals who want a commercial driving mat at a reasonable price. This mat can be used on any surface, including concrete. It is a very durable golf mat with ½" turf pile and 5/8” closed-cell ensolite backing. The thicker backing helps to minimize club shock, if you happen to drive your club into the golf mat. Sizes available: 1x2, 1x4, 3x4, 4x4, 4x5, 4x6, 5x5.

Performa Commercial Nylon Range Mats - This mat is knitted nylon, with ½” pile and 5/8” closed cell ensolite backing. This means that it has very good durability and the padding provides a comfortable feeling and minimizes turf shock. The turf is 30% denser than the turf you'll find in other commercial golf mats, so it lasts longer. Sizes available: 3x4, 4x4, 4x5, 4x6, 5x5.
