And why Southwest Greens of Southern California is the perfect option for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural grass on tee lines is no longer the norm. Tee lines are exposed to a lot of foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs continually swinging. Synthetic grass is the better selection because it can endure these activities a lot more successfully and still look great in the long run.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass can be fickle. It’s hard to maintain and only looks good with the right conditions. Natural turf will cultivate differently in Los Angeles and Southern California from season to season. Certain locations can be thicker, while other places are sparse.

Routine Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you would see on a golf course, this may require daily mowing. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Also take into account the time, gasoline, and mower maintenance, and you can prepare for a hefty bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds require removal, which most times, is done with noxious chemicals. This is not a scenario where you can treat it once and be done with it. Herbicides are frequently required to keep weeds away.


Grubs, weevils, ants — the list goes on. In traditional turf, you’ll definitely find one or more of these pests in the future. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which aren’t only bad for the environment, but also the people applying them.

Water Requirements

Traditional grass needs water to appear lush and green. Merely a few days of dry conditions can make turf appear sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, natural turf tee lines must be watered regularly in order to appear healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic grass will grow in various ways in Los Angeles and Southern California from one season to the next. Certain places may be more dense, while other places are sparse. If you’ve ever played on an organic grass tee line, you understand how there can be patches of turf missing from powerful swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

Through artificial turf, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They’ll never require watering, fertilizing, or mowing, which means that tee lines can remain open consistently. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the perfect complement to natural grass. Overused grass tee lines rarely stay healthy. Installing and substituting synthetic tee lines provides organic grass the essential time it requires to recover.

Improved Playability

Synthetic grass plays well because it has an even, reliable surface. You’ll never have to be concerned about the clubface catching on the grass and interfering with your shot again with synthetic turf.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the turf won’t become swampy and slippery over rainstorms. Synthetic turf will not get ripped apart and generate dips and divots that are tripping hazards in the way that organic grass does.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make simpler and more cost-efficient ways to change parts as opposed to replacing the whole panel or tee line. Utilizing less expensive components for the swinging areas reduces the project’s cost.
