I was curious if anyone had any recommendations on a good hitting mat that I could use off my deck to hit into the backyard.  I'd be using it for chipping and full swings.

I have a “Range to Go” hitting mat. Three different surfaces to hit from. Folds up to store, very portable and doesn't seem to move around much when hitting. Use it in the yard so I'm not taking chunks out of the lawn.

Call a couple of driving ranges. This is the best time of year to get a good price on a used mat. A lot of ranges will sell their old mats for a great price and these are obviously high end mats. Worth a try.

That's a great idea!  I'll call my local ranges to see if any of them will be replacing them.

I bought some high end putting green artificial grass on OfferUp for $50. A nice 5x7 piece. Super cushioned and works fantastic. Would cost $250 - $300 to buy a similar sized mat in eBay. They usually have left over scrap from the install and try to make a few bucks on the left over pieces. I am supper happy with it. Just a idea.

I have a strip from All Turf Mats that I put into a hitting platform that I built. It allows you to put a tee into it like normal grass and you can hit down onto the ball. A bit pricey but well worth it.

I bought the Real Feel hitting strip from Amazon and plan on buying a cheaper hitting mat and cutting a section out and dropping the strip in there. That way you still get the Real Feel quality without the huge price tag.

I have a CCE Real Feel and couldn't be happier. Not the cheapest but love the mat.

I just called my local range and they have one that I'm going to go get tomorrow!  It seemed like most ranges are more than willing to talk with you and the beginning and end of the seasons based on some of the conversations I had.  Thank you for the help everyone!

Yeah they are selling me their 5x15 mat for $100.  I've got 2 other guys that want to go in with me and we're going to cut it into 3 5x5 mats for about 30 each

I'd be all over that.  I'd cut it in 3 sections and have 3 different areas to hit from in the yard all going to flags at a different distance.

Now that I think of it, the course I use to manage has some nice 5x5 mats that I bought when I was there about 3-4 years ago. The last time I saw them they were in really good shape, but they didn't use them this past winter.  I wonder what they are planning on doing with those.  I may try to pick one or two up this afternoon.
