And why Southwest Greens of Houston is the best option 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 subjected to regular foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs constantly taking swings. Synthetic grass is the preferred option because it can endure these activities much more efficiently and still look great for years to come.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s tough to preserve and only looks appealing under certain settings. Natural turf will cultivate differently in Houston from from one season to the next. Some locations may be more dense, while some other places are sparse.

Regular Mowing

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


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds must be removed, which most times, is done with toxic chemicals. This is not a scenario where you can treat it once and be done with it. Herbicides must be used regularly to keep weeds at bay.


Ants, grubs, weevils — 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 nature, but also the individuals using them.

Water Requirements

Organic grass requires water to appear lush and green. Merely a few days of dry weather conditions can have grass look sad and in need of attention. This implies that natural grass tee lines have to be watered frequently in order to appear well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic grass will cultivate in various ways in Houston from one season to the next. Some areas can be more dense, while other areas are sparse. If you’ve felt an organic grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be patches of turf missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great All Year Long

With the use of artificial turf, tee lines will always look fantastic. They will never necessitate watering, fertilizing, or mowing, hence, tee lines can remain open consistently. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines rarely stay healthy. Setting up and switching synthetic tee lines gives natural turf the essential time it requires to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Artificial turf plays well due to its even, predictable surface. You’ll never have to be concerned about the clubface catching on the turf and affecting your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the surface won’t become muddy and slippery over heavy rainfall. Synthetic grass won’t get ripped up and cause dips and divots that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce easier and more cost-effective ways to replace pieces instead of replacing the whole panel or tee line. Utilizing more cost-effective components for the swinging areas reduces the project’s cost.
