PuttOut Putting Mat

The PuttOut Golf Mat comes in three different sizes; slim, medium and large.

The slim mat measures 25cm x 240cm when it’s fully rolled out. The medium putting mat is the same length, but double the width, at 50cm. This length is just under 8 feet long, so you can work on putts from 6 feet and in.

The large mat comes in at a much wider and longer size of 367cm x 67cm, which is 12 feet. This gives you the opportunity to practice putts from up to 10 feet.

The mats also come in a choice of colour, such as green & white or grey & white.

The PuttOut mats all come with a range of different line markings, including target and alignment lines.

They also feature hole markings which are great for hitting putts towards. The slim and medium mats have one main target hole at the end. Whereas the large mat has a total of six hole markings, one at the end of the mat and five spread out down the side.

The PuttOut mats are designed with a soft, carpet-like material that rolls at 10 on the stimp metre, which is what you would expect from most golf courses in the Summer months.

The fabric creates a smooth surface for rolling putts on and the extra-thick rubber backing helps the mat stay stable on the flooring and rolls out crease-free.

The mats also come with a black travel carry bag. The mats roll up easily and can fit into the bag for when you’re not using it or so that you can take them with you if you’re traveling.

Although the mat comes on its own, with just the carry bag, PuttOut also has plenty of other training aids that pair well with the putting mat.

The PuttOut Pressure Trainer and Putting Mirror are great additions that can help with your fundamentals and improve your putting stroke.

Our Verdict

I’ve always been a fan of using a golf putting mat at home instead of just putting on the carpet.

For the smoothest roll possible, a good quality putting mat will be much more beneficial to your game than just carpet putting.

Having tested out the Puttout Putting Standard Mat, I do think it’s a very good quality product to use, however, I think a lot of people will be put off by the price tag.

First of all, the mats are made to last from great quality materials. The putting surface is super smooth and rolls extremely well.

It’s almost a bit too smooth to put on when you compare it to the level of a lot of UK greens.

The rubber backing is super sturdy and provides a good, stable base for putting off.

When rolled out, there’s very few if any creases on the putting surface, so there’s no need to smooth anything out before you begin practicing.

In terms of features, the PuttOut putting mats may feel like they’re lacking compared to other putting mats.

It is just a mat with a few markings on it after all, with no actual hole to put into unless you add the PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer don’t be fooled by the pictures, this is an extra not included with the mat).

Having said that, there’s too many putting mats on the market that claim to have plenty of great features but are lacking the real fundamentals required to make a good practice putting aid.

The PuttOut putting mat gets the basics right and that’s what I really like about the product.

The alignment markings are nice and sharp, with parallel lines running toward the hole like an alignment stick.

As well as clear markings for each distance up the length of the mat.

It also has line markings running perpendicular to the target, which work really well for making sure the putter face is square to where you’re aiming.

The large mat also comes with a few extra holes, so you can mix up your practice if you feel like a change.

The length of the mats is a little on the short side. The standard mat is just under 8 feet, which if you’re using the alignment aids, allows you to practice 6-foot putts and in.

This may seem a little short for a putting mat, but realistically, 6-foot putts are the lengths that all golfers should be practicing.

If you’re able to hole just two or three extra 6-foot putts a round, just think about what that can do to your scores.

Storage-wise, the mat comes with a useful travel bag that allows you to roll the mat up after use and store it away for next time.

As mentioned, the quality of the product is good.

The mat lays flat and the roll is very smooth, although it does begin to create a few tramlines down the line after hitting a few putts.

This can easily be resolved however with a gentle brushing or hoovering against the grain of the mat.

The price point is where I think golfers may be a little put off when looking at the PuttOut.

It is a little expensive for what it is, in my opinion.

The medium size will cost you about £70 and if you want the large, it’s a pretty hefty £130.

The cheapest option is the slim mat, which will cost you around £50.

However, for me, it’s just a little bit too small in terms of width, at less than a foot wide.

There’s no question, that’s a lot of money to spend on a golf practice mat.

However, overall, I do believe that because of the level of quality and the great alignment aids included, the PuttOut Golf Putting Mat is a worthwhile purchase that will help improve golfers putting stroke.

If you can look past the price, you can get a top-of-the-range practice mat that does the basics really well.

Final Thoughts

That rounds off our PuttOut Putting Mat review.
