Golf Hitting Mats / May 2012

GolfTest USA has received many requests from golfers asking us to test Golf Hitting Mats. We have completed testing on several Golf Hitting Mats. We had over 200 golfers hit off several different type mats supplied by Fiberbuilt, AstroTurf and Zelda Sports. GolfTest USA then had each golfer rate several criteria on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best. We then complied all the results and posted them below. All the mats we tested were of excellent quality. They are far superior to most artificial hitting surfaces we have seen at practice facilities around the country. We would recommend any of these mats to golfers looking to improve their game.

The Zelda Sports True Lies Hitting Mat is specifically designed for practicing shots from uphill, downhill and side hill lies.

The Golf Hitting Mats that achieved the highest ratings have been awarded GolfTest USA’s “Seal Of Excellence”. Those Golf Hitting Mats have been designated with three asterisks after them.

Let us know if there are other Golf Hitting Mats you would like us to test and we will contact the manufacturers to see if they will participate in our next testing cycle. requestatest@golftestusa.com

Over several years of testing GolfTest USA has determined that when subjective and objective ratings from our Test Administrators and the golfers taking the test are combined the overall rating is a very accurate indication of the actual performance of any particular golf product. There is only a small difference in the ratings yet even a couple of percentage points difference from one golf product to another is significant enough to indicate a golf product that performs at a superior level to other similar golf product.
