Golf Course Matting - Customer Testimonials

On behalf of Meadowbrook Country Club, I would like to thank you and your company for the excellent product, PEM Surface Creations, and excellent service provided by your staff.  When we needed to resurface the steps to our fitness center, we researched several products.  Above all other products, your product appeared to be exceptional. 

After talks with your professionals, we felt certain that your product would meet our needs.  Now, after installation, those beliefs have become a reality.  The poly extruded mat was easy for country club staff to install and required no specialty tools, just the razor knife, straight edge, and caulk gun.  The mat provides excellent drainage, and has reduced the risk of slips and falls.  The “High Friction” aluminum oxide grit coating that was promised by your staff functioned as promised, and we are thoroughly pleased.

Besides the practice elements, the ability to choose from a color palate that would meld with building and facility décor is an added bonus.  We are proud to have utilized a product made in the USA.

Thank you again for your time and assistance in making this product purchase and installation a complete success.

We had a lot of steps, wooden walkways and bridges that were of concern when the club decided to go spikeless. PEM Golf Course Matting was easily installed on these areas and the members love it. Water drains right through the mat, and it provides excellent traction for spikeless traffic. The PVC construction also greatly reduces golf ball bounce on high impact areas, around greens and fairways. The rubber matting I tried was always wet on the underside and slippery when moist. All of the rubber was replaced with PEM Golf Course Matting. I think it will truly last for many years.

If you have any input to your greens committee, I highly recommend PEM Golf Course Matting. At our club, we have used a multitude of railroad ties for paths and steps. Upon making soft spikes mandatory, players were constantly slipping on the ties. After several hip, shoulder and knee injuries, we soon saw an urgency to solve the problem, and we were fortunate to find PEM Golf Course Matting. The product looks great, doesn't fade, and gives tremendous footing. Quite a savings over replacing the railroad ties! It can also be used to cover cart paths in play, as it greatly reduces the bounce of the golf ball!

A Great Product!

Prior to changing over to a "soft spikes" policy at the end of 1997, all our matting was that stiffed ribbed rubber. However, if the dew was heavy, heavy frost or rain, these mats were extremely slippery. In our pursuit to replace these mats and experimenting with a few different types, we found that PEM Golf Course Matting was the best. No slipping, easy to clean and easy to install. I could recommend this product to anyone with a similar need.

Here at Valhalla, we have many bridges and I seemed to get a call every time it rained on someone slipping. PEM Golf Course Matting solved our problems and the best part is that it drains and helps in preserving the wood. It’s helped our members as well as the best players in the world.

Thank You,

Prior to hosting the 2008 BMW Championship here at Bellerive, we were looking for a quality, functional and aesthetically pleasing surface cover for the existing foot bridges on the course. PEM material fit our needs perfectly. No more slipping with soft spikes and the surface blends well with the surroundings.

Mayacama Golf Club is a walking only golf course complimented by a professional caddie program. We focus on maintaining a quality walking experience.

Numerous stairways and wooden bridges are used to access greens, tees and fairways and we use PEM Golf Course Matting on all surfaces to provide a non-slip surface for our members, guests, and caddies, on the golf course. The matting provides excellent footing for players wearing spikes and ensures a safe working environment for our caddies in all weather conditions.

Additionally, the matting has an excellent aesthetic quality that we are happy to incorporate into the look and feel of our walking experience on the golf course.

At Bear Slide Golf Club we have over 1,700 feet of wood bridges. PEM matting has helped us reduce the risk of our guests slipping and getting injured as our bridges can be very slick when wet.
