Country Club Elite Golf Practice Mats have made the big time. The Today Show will be featuring the new Annika’s Academy of Golf & Fitness at Reunion Resort & Club the morning of April 16th.

“I had to pinch myself when I got the original call to provide Putting Turf and Practice Mats for this project. Of course, I believe that we make the best product in the world, but to have it tested and approved for Annika’s Academy was a dream come true. We are a small company, so to get some recognition from the big boys (and girls!) is really special. I’m sure it will help grow my business.”

Finally, A Golf Mat that lets you swing 1“down-and-through” the ball. Country Club Elite Golf Mats have solved some of the age old problems of golf mats. With most mats you can behind the ball (a “fat shot”) and your club with skip across the top of the mat – strike the ball – and your results won’t look so bad. Or some mats are so hard that golfers will actually do a “mat-flinch” as they approach impact. The Country Club Elite Tall-Dense-Fiber-System solves these problems.

The “Tall-Dense-Fiber-System” of the Country Club Elite Golf Mat absorbs and dissipates the blow of the club similar to taking a real divot. This allows for more realistic practice and training - especially at the critical point of impact.

Annika's Academy at Reunion Resort & Club is a 5,400 square-foot, state-of-the-art teaching facility, ringed by private chipping and putting greens, will serve as the centerpiece of the golf academy. Students will sharpen their skills on Reunion's three Signature golf courses designed by golf legends Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. Small class sizes of approximately six to eight people per class will afford students an unprecedented level of personalized attention, not often found today in golf clinics and schools.
