And why Southwest Greens of Austin is the ideal option for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Organic grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to regular foot traffic and damage from golf clubs frequently taking swings. Artificial turf is a better option since it has the ability to withstand these activities far more successfully and preserve its appearance in the long run.

Traditional Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass can be fickle. It’s tough to preserve and only looks right under particular circumstances. Traditional grass will cultivate in various ways in Austin from season to season. Some portions may be thicker, while some other places are sparse.

Regular Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you would see on a golf course, this may require daily mowing. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Consider the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you’re in for a costly bill.


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds require removal, which more often than not, is done with unsafe chemicals. This isn’t a scenario where you can treat it once and be done with it. Herbicides are needed frequently to keep weeds away.


Grubs, weevils, ants — the list goes on and on. In natural grass, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these pests at some point. To control these pests, you need chemicals, which aren’t only triggers a negative impact on the environment, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Traditional turf needs water to look lush and green. Just a couple days of dry weather can have turf seem sad and in need of attention. This implies that traditional grass tee lines must be watered all the time to look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic grass will grow in various ways in Austin from one season to the next. Some spots may be thicker, while other areas are patchy. If you’ve ever played on a traditional grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be patches of grass missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

With the use of synthetic turf, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They’ll never require fertilizing, mowing, or watering, which means that tee lines can remain open at all times. Time lost due to maintenance will no longer be an issue.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic complements natural grass beautifully. Due to a high volume of traffic, grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Implementing and substituting synthetic tee lines provides natural grass the crucial time it needs to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Artificial turf plays well because of its leveled, reliable surface. You’ll never have to worry about the clubface gripping the grass and interfering with your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There is reduced likelihood for injuries because the turf won’t get swampy and slippery throughout rainstorms. Artificial turf won’t get torn apart and generate divots and dips that are tripping hazards like organic grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create easier and more cost-efficient ways to replace pieces instead of replacing an entire panel or tee line. Using affordable materials for the stance area decreases the cost of the project.
