Benji Vernon TruestrikeOur driving range is regularly refered to as the best in Kent! It has a fantastic outfield to hit to, with top quality TrueStrike and TrueTee mats, or hit from our grass hitting area. In addition, we use the latest Srixon range ball to replicate the feel of a golf ball you would use on the course. Check out our YouTube video to see our TrueTee mat in action with our very own Benji Vernon.

In April 2013 our driving range underwent a full refurbishment. We carpeted the entire driving range and replaced all of the mats with the latest TrueStrike and TrueTee mats. We chose TrueStrike for our mats because after extensive research they proved to be the mat that most accurately replicates the feel of grass.


TrueStrike's forgiving strike surface and divot simulating subsurface mean that the shock and vibration associated with hitting from traditional mats is substantially reduced. Rather than the vibration caused at impact traveling up the club shaft and into the arm of the user, as on a traditional golf mat, it is absorbed into the gel pad below the strike surface.
