  • Flooring between Screan and Mat

    I am looking for ideas for a surface between the screen and hitting Mat. Please let me know what you used.

    I use foam interconnecting tiles that you see in gyms. My hitting area is in the garage so I needed something soft to minimize any bouncing.

      I actually constructed a fold down system in my garage. Built from wood almost like you would build a deck, but I used low cost studs.. Covered it with outdoor carpeting and completed it with a $65 winch to pull it against the wall. It is pretty awesome actually and allows me to turn my golf course back to a garage in about 3 minutes. I have pics if you are interested.

        I use 4x6 rubber stall mats from TSC as the subfloor except for area where mat is. I have.a 5x5 Rawhide grade A mat. I.looked at getting turf but costs were too high. I called synlawn places all over midwest. I went to a local carpet store and bought a 12x14 commercial carpet remnant and had the edges bound like an area rug. When I put remnant rug down I cut out a square for my hitting mat so it lies recessed into the carpet nearly level. I can easily putt straight off the hitting mat and ball rolls like a fast smooth green. Here is a construction picture before finishing screen enclosure.

          Interlocking foam tiles. Quiet and easy on club heads.

            jrz not sure this helps but I have much better luck on this forum with my images not randomly rotating if I use the Upload Attachments button on the right v the Share Photos button on the left. No clue why.

          You can open it in something like photoshop , rotate it and re save.

            I bought some inexpensive astroturf off a big roll at Lowes and put cheap carpet padding under it. Cost about $35 and helps keep balls from bouncing all over the place. I also took another about 8x6 foot of cheap carpet padding and rolled it and wrapped it in an old sheet for a bumper at the bottom of the screen. A bad shot, (not that I've ever done that mind you) hitting the padded frame at the bottom of the screen was still coming off it with plenty of velocity. Saves a lot of scary bad shot caroms (and I don't spend time chasing golf balls around my garage).

              I got this from eBay. 8x12 for $170. Decent quality and deadens the ball while looking professional. Because I had a protege putting system I raised it with foam insulation boards.
