And why Southwest Greens East Bay is the ideal choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Organic turf on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are exposed to heavy foot traffic and damage from golf clubs continually taking swings. Artificial grass is a optimal option because it can endure these activities much more efficiently and preserve its appearance for years to come.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass is finicky. It’s difficult to keep up and only looks good under certain settings. Natural turf will cultivate differently in Oakley from season to season. Certain portions may be thicker, while some other locations are scant.

Routine Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you would see on a golf course, this could require you to mow daily. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Consider the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you can prepare for a expensive bill.


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds require removal, which is usually done with harsh chemicals. This isn’t a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides are frequently required to keep weeds away.


Weevils, ants, grubs — it goes on and on. In traditional grass, there’s a good chance you’ll find one or more of these pests at any given time. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which aren’t only bad for the nature, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic turf needs water to appear full and green. Only a few days of dry weather conditions can cause grass appear sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, traditional turf tee lines need to be watered regularly in order to appear well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Natural turf will cultivate in various ways in Oakley from one season to the next. Certain places can be more dense, while other areas are patchy. If you’ve ever played on an organic grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be swaths of turf missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

With artificial grass, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They’ll never necessitate fertilizing, mowing, or watering, as a result, tee lines can stay open all the time. 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 rarely stay healthy. Installing and switching artificial tee lines provides natural grass the crucial time it needs to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Synthetic turf plays well due to its even, reliable surface. You’ll never have to worry about the clubface grabbing the turf and affecting your shot again with synthetic grass.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the grass won’t get swampy and slippery during heavy rainfall. Synthetic grass will not get torn apart and cause divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create easier and more cost-efficient ways to substitute pieces instead of replacing an entire panel or tee line. Utilizing less expensive materials for the stance area reduces the project’s cost.
