And why Southwest Greens is the perfect choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional grass on tee lines has become inferior in a short amount of time. Tee lines are vulnerable to regular foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs continually taking swings. Artificial turf is a preferred choice since it has the ability to withstand these activities far more successfully and still look great for years to come.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s hard to maintain and only looks good under certain settings. Natural grass will cultivate differently in from season to season. Certain portions can be more dense, while some other places are scarce.

Routine Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you would find on a golf course, this can require daily mowing. Yes, you read that correctly. Daily. Factor in the time, gasoline, and mower maintenance, and you’re in for a hefty bill.


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds should be removed, which is usually done with noxious chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides are frequently required to keep weeds at bay.


Ants, grubs, weevils — it goes on and on. In natural grass, you’re sure to find one or more of these pests at some point. To control these pests, you need chemicals, which are not only a strain on the environment, but also the individuals applying them.

Water Requirements

Natural turf requires water to appear lush and green. Just a couple days of dry weather conditions can cause turf seem sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, traditional turf tee lines must be watered all the time to look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic turf will grow in a variety of ways in from one time of year to the next. Certain places can be thicker, while other places are scant. If you’ve been on a traditional turf tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be chunks of turf missing from powerful swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

With the use of artificial turf, tee lines will look great all the time. They will never require watering, fertilizing, or mowing, hence, tee lines can remain open all the time. Time lost due to maintenance will no longer be an issue.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the perfect complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Implementing and switching artificial tee lines provides natural turf the crucial time it needs to recover.

Better Playability

Artificial grass plays well due to its leveled, reliable surface. You’ll never have to be troubled about the clubface catching on the turf and interfering with your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There is reduced likelihood for injuries because the grass will not get muddy and slippery over rainstorms. Artificial grass will not get ripped apart and result in divots and dips that are tripping hazards like organic grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make more convenient and more cost-efficient ways to replace pieces instead of replacing the complete panel or tee line. Applying more cost-effective items for the swinging areas decreases the cost of the project.
