No one wants to play off mats, any mats, so ask yourself – why does the Smart Mat® receive so much tremendous feedback from Golfers?
Answer: It really must be as good as they say it is!

Clubs and PGA Professional testimonials

“We have now introduced the Smart Mat at Royal Troon Golf Club for winter play and the feedback from members is extremely positive: “Best winter mat I have ever used”;”Feels great to play off”; “Very handy to slip in to the pocket between shots”; “I hit my iron shots further than usual in the winter” are some of the comments we have had. We feel it is a great product at a very reasonable price and it is the best winter mat we have used.”

Kieron Stevenson, Head Pro Royal Troon Golf Club

Royal Troon utilised the Smart Mat exclusively to protect the course prior to the 2016 British OPEN Championship

“I am pleased to tell you that the Smart Mats are selling at a fantastic rate! Please could you begin count down as quickly as possible and blast off another box of 50 sets in my direction”

“Andrew Myers, Class AA PGA Pro, Reddish Vale Golf Club” He sold out in less than a week!

“We doubted to use the Smart Mat on our course. As the weather forecast isn’t as in Spain we were obligated to close the course more than we wanted. This was the most important reason to use the Smart Mat. Last winter we could open the course much more due to the Smart Mat. In the beginning of the season, the fairways looked amazing and this lasted the whole season. There are a lot of people who were sceptical in advance, but afterwards they changed their thoughts. This should be used in every golf club in Belgium and we hope a lot will follow!”

Manager Waregem Golf, Frank Salembier (hcp 3.1)

“Thank you for the prompt delivery of 50 Smart Mats, it’s right not to call them just mats! 5 days in and I only have 3 left, enough said. Send another 50 ASAP”

Nick Ryan, PGA Pro, Ringway Golf Club

“Hi divotEND, had a successful first weekend on mats and the Smart Mat went down very well. Of the 50 sets I ordered I only have 15 left and could do with another box ASAP please”.

Carl PGA Pro, Mellor and Townscliffe Golf Club

“The 2012/13 winter season was the first time our club used the Smart Mats. They proved to be a great success in the protection of the course with a huge reduction in the number of divots and most of our members found them great to play off, especially when the ground was wet and mucky. There is also the added benefit that we make a few £ pounds from the sales. We will be stocking them again this winter.”

Peter Hanna PGA Pro, Lurgan Golf Club

“First of all I was sceptical about the use of winter mats. But after testing the Smart Mat I’m convinced that this is a big improvement for the course in winter time. It enables me to strike the ball as well as on a normal summer fairway. Don’t be afraid to hit down on a ball like a normal summer shot. It is a perfect winter exercise/drill to keep your swing in shape for the summer. And of course it helps the sustainability of the course during the winter time.”

Thibault Werbrouck, PGA Pro, Waregem Golf (former Challenge Tour player).

“Your product is a great one and the amount of customers we have in our shop who talk about their friends having one and how they just had to have one as well is amazing.”

The Pro Shop, St Andrews

“First time we have used mats at Chevin Golf Club but the feedback about the Smart Mat has so far been excellent. Within the space of a couple of weeks since we started selling them we are now on our fourth box.”

200 sets in just 2 weeks! Willie Bird, PGA Pro

“A great success, what a terrific sensation hitting off this “Smart Mat”!! By the way they are selling like the proverbial hotcakes in Cruden Bay!! Best regards, Jim”

Golfer Feedback

“Hi Guys, Just thought I’d let you know how pleased I am with the Smart Mat. I’ve used it for 3 rounds now, I can’t believe how easy it is to use compared to the bit of artificial turf I had been using. Our course wants us to play mats from semi rough as well, this has proved to be no problem for the Smart Mat, in fact I’m going to miss this come Spring, great product guys. Regards, John” email

“I recently purchased three of your smart mats and I must admit I was quite surprised how big a difference it made compared to the conventional mats. (I am a 6 handicap golfer in winter and 9 in summer). Thank you for a great product.” Hamish

“We provide ‘astro turf’ type mats free to borrow for a round but virtually all members are trying them then returning to buy the Smart Mats from the club. All owners of the Smart Mats are using them in preference to Preferred Lies (lift & place).” DH, Golf Magic forum

“These are a huge advance on old-style winter mats. They inspire confidence and are a fun to play off. Also a fantastic tool for practising your golf or preparing ahead of a round, allowing you to swing downwards without taking a divot or offering a consistent surface to hit warm-up shots from. A truly great product.” Duncan, South Africa

“I’m not sure if Gleneagles is insisting on winter turf protection but that apart, my playing partner went round in a scratch 70 with his launcher at Turnhouse GC recently and I just have to see if some of that rubs off on me as well. The big kid in me will be using the Smart Mat no matter what.” Brilliant guys, and thanks for that. Clive

“A great success, what a terrific sensation hitting off this “mat”!! By the way they are selling like the proverbial hotcakes in Cruden Bay!! Best regards, Jim

“Used the Smart Mat last year, beats teeing up teeing up in winter conditions, clubs should make them mandatory in winter, stops fairways getting ripped up, and no need to pick and play from the first cut.” John H.

“Smart Mats bring a little bit of summer to those horrible winter golf courses! As vital to enjoying a nice winter round as a pair of gloves. You shouldn’t go without either!” Dave S.

“Won’t play winter golf without one! Hands done the best winter mat in the business! I use it on winter tees as well, so stops your irons from getting marked…..easier to use, lighter, doesn’t deform like other mats, it’s a no brainer! It’s simple, take it out, throw it down, roll your ball on, give it a crack, pick it up. Gonna pick myself up a spare in case I lose it, or the people who try it don’t give it me back”. Trevor Hulton

“The best winter mat on the market without doubt “. Fred Green

“No kidding they are great and have got much interest at our club. 4 of my pals have ordered online too as result and all single figure handicappers. Just trying to convince our club shop to look into stocking the Smart Mat now!!!” Martin, Lancs

“This product is awesome this is what winter golf has needed” Andy H. (f.b)

“Guys ,I bought a rocket launcher at the golf show on Saturday morning and drove straight to the course to try it. Awesome awesome awesome!! I am going to try to get more people at my course using it. Cheers” – Brian
