Our best (nicest to play off) practice mat is a deep-pile Teeturf mat normally 1.5m x 1.5m, but other sizes are available. Made especially for us with a heavy felt backing with 4 rubber tee holes for drivers, but which allows you to shape a shot with your iron played directly off the surface. Exactly like playing off grass, the surface even accepts course tees. Because play is not concentrated around a tee hole, wear has proven to be very good, and this is a popular choice at top facilities. Also available in 1m x 1.5m for less intense home practice at an affordable shipping cost.
