And why Southwest Greens of Tucson is the ideal choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural turf on tee lines has become inferior in a short amount of time. Tee lines are exposed to endless foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs frequently swinging. Synthetic grass is a better choice considering its ability to withstand these activities a lot more successfully and preserve its appearance for years to come.

Traditional Grass Disadvantages

Natural grass can be fickle. It’s hard to keep up and only looks good under certain settings. Traditional turf will grow differently in Tucson from one time of year to another. Certain areas may be more dense, while other places are sparse.

Regular Mowing

To ensure that the grass is as short as you would see on a golf course, this could require daily mowing. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Consider the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you’re looking at a costly bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which more often than not, is done with harsh chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides must be used regularly to be free of weeds forever.


Weevils, ants, grubs — it goes on. In traditional turf, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these pests in the future. To control these pests, you need chemicals, which aren’t only bad for the nature, but also the people using them.

Water Requirements

Organic grass needs water to appear full and green. Only a few days of dry weather conditions can make turf appear sad and neglected. This means natural grass tee lines have to be watered often in order to appear healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Natural turf will cultivate in various ways in Tucson from one season to the next. Some places may be thicker, while other places are sparse. If you’ve ever played on an organic grass tee line, you know how there can be chunks of grass missing from powerful swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

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

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is an excellent complement to natural grass. Overused grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Setting up and replacing artificial tee lines provides organic turf the much-needed recovery time.

Better Playability

Synthetic grass plays well because of its consistent, 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 are fewer chances for injuries because the surface won’t get muddy and slippery over heavy rainfall. Artificial grass will not get torn apart and result in divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce simpler and more cost-effective ways to change portions as opposed to replacing the complete panel or tee line. Utilizing more cost-effective materials for the swinging areas decreases the cost of the project.
