JR Mats is a golf mat manufacturer based in Westchester, Pennsylvania. They produce high quality golf practice mats and putting mats and pride themselves with the slogan, “The Real Feel Golf Mat™,” working towards giving golfers true feel when hitting shots from a golf mat.

The company was purchased in 2000 by current owner Jay R. McGrath and transformed from a commercial flooring company into the golf mat manufacturing business it is today. When McGrath purchased the company, it was primarily a textile company which produced welcome mats, rubber mats, weight lifting mats, entry matting et al. Initially, only about 5% of the company was focused on golf mats, but McGrath developed this focus in his 12 years of operation and ownership.

Jay R. McGrath took the company from a struggling commercial flooring business in its early days to one of the leading golf mat producers in the nation. With a laser focus on producing the best golf mat in the industry. McGrath was able to focus the niche of his company toward a one-of-a-kind practice mat embraced by the top PGA teaching professionals, country clubs, golf courses, and driving ranges throughout the country.

JR Mats operates all of its sales and business office in his hometown of West Chester, PA. Their production facility and warehouse is located in North Georgia which is still a worldwide leader in the textile industry.

The Country Club Elite™ proprietary design and construction provides golfers a unique combination of firmness to stand/gain footing, with an ability to take a tee, be softer on the joints and remain flexible/durable enough to take repeated proper strikes with every golf club in the bag. They are the complete, all-around golf mat.

Jay R. McGrath has listened closely to what the market wanted and placed them at the forefront of his innovation. In doing this, he has developed a loyal following of PGA professionals and amateur golfers alike.

For some insight into some of the popular names using JR Mats products, they do business with top teaching professionals including Mike Bender in Florida, Jim McLean Golf School in Miami Beach, David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Orlando, Butch Harmon Golf School in Las Vegas and Brian Manzella Golf Academy in Louisiana and Youtube sensation Shawn Clement in Canada. The products have taken off largely through simple “word-of-mouth” from professional to professional about the high quality of the products.

BackNine Interactive and USGolfTV along with JR Mats are excited to move forward in this new relationship! (Also, remember where to take your golf mat needs…(
