Hate playing off mats? Spurk Golf has the answer.  

The British-based company is revolutionising winter golf and improving the experience of playing golf in the off-season for golfers all around the world.

Their unique, patented, winter golf mats have an ingenuous design, features six angled spikes to lock firmly down into the turf with a gentle forward tread, then lift out from the back with no effort at all.

Not only does the golfer get to enjoy their winter golf without the constant frustration of a moving mat, but the course benefits as well. The Spurk Golf mat offers complete protection to the golf course and helps aerate the turf.

Kev Shelton, who co-created the mat with lifelong friend Andy Sears, explained: “We were inspired to design our own golf mat in 2017 after yet another game of golf was ruined by poor-quality mats.

“We simply wanted a golf mat that didn’t move and disrupt our shot – and that’s exactly what we made. When we tested the prototype ourselves, we knew as golfers it was amazing, but were still blown away by the response when we trialled the mat with other players.”

There are two different mats to choose from – long pile or short pile – so you can more accurately mimic the course conditions, whilst the mats come with a free toggle that attaches easily to your bag and wraps under the back spikes of the mat.

Now available in a growing number of pro shops across the UK, the mats are popular with players and greenkeepers alike for providing fairway protection without disrupting play.

“We believe the success of the Spurk mat is due to it being made for golfers, by golfers,” added Kev. “Our experience and knowledge of the game allowed us to design a golf mat that gives an authentic lie and doesn’t disrupt our strike. Combined with quality materials and first-rate manufacturing, Spurk golf mats seamlessly solve an issue faced by players and clubs alike around the world.”
