And why Southwest Greens of Metro New York is the better solution for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Organic grass on tee lines has become inferior in a short amount of time. Tee lines are vulnerable to endless foot traffic and damage from golf clubs frequently swinging. Artificial grass is a better option because it can hold up to these activities far more successfully and preserve its appearance for years to come.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass has several quirks. It’s difficult to maintain and only looks good under particular circumstances. Organic grass will cultivate in various ways in Metro New York from one time of year to another. Some areas may be more dense, while other portions are scarce.

Frequent Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you’d find on a golf course, this could necessitate daily mowing. Yes, you read that correctly. Daily. Factor in the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you can prepare for a hefty bill.


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds require removal, which is usually done with toxic chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides must be used regularly to keep weeds at bay.


Ants, grubs, weevils — it goes on. In organic grass, you’re sure to find at least one of these pests at any given time. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which aren’t only harmful to the nature, but also the people applying them.

Water Requirements

Natural grass requires water to look full and green. Just a couple days of dry conditions can cause grass look sad and in need of attention. Hence, traditional grass tee lines need to be watered often to make it look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic grass will cultivate in a variety of ways in Metro New York from season to season. Certain spots may be more dense, while other areas are sparse. If you’ve felt an organic turf tee line, you understand how there can be chunks of grass missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

With the use of synthetic turf, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They’ll never necessitate fertilizing, mowing, or watering, hence, tee lines can open consistently. Time lost due to maintenance will no longer be an issue.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the perfect complement to natural grass. Due to a high volume of traffic, grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Setting up and substituting artificial tee lines provides natural turf the crucial time it needs to recover.

Better Playability

Synthetic turf plays well due to its consistent, predictable surface. You’ll never have to worry about the clubface catching on the grass and affecting your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There are fewer chances for injuries because the turf won’t get muddy and slippery over rainstorms. Synthetic grass will not get ripped up and result in divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create easier and more cost-effective ways to substitute parts as opposed to replacing the complete panel or tee line. Utilizing more cost-effective components for the hitting surfaces lowers the project’s cost.
