And why Southwest Greens of Fresno is the better option for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural turf on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to regular foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs continually taking swings. Synthetic grass is a optimal choice since it has the ability to withstand these activities much more efficiently and still look great for years to come.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass is finicky. It’s tough to preserve and only looks right under particular circumstances. Natural grass will cultivate in various ways in Fresno from one time of year to another. Some locations may be more dense, while other areas are scant.

Frequent Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you’d experience on a golf course, this may necessitate daily mowing. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Also take into account the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you’re looking at a hefty bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which is usually done with harmful chemicals. This is not a scenario where you can treat it once and be done with it. Herbicides are frequently required to get rid of weeds.


Ants, grubs, weevils — the list goes on. In traditional grass, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these pests at some point. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which aren’t only a strain on the nature, but also the individuals applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic turf requires water to appear healthy and green. Merely a few days of dry weather can cause turf look sad and in need of attention. This implies that natural turf tee lines need to be watered regularly in order to appear healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional turf will cultivate differently in Fresno from season to season. Certain places may be more dense, while other spots are scant. If you’ve been on a natural turf tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be swaths of grass missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

Through synthetic turf, tee lines will look great all the time. They will never require fertilizing, mowing, or watering, which means that tee lines can stay open all the time. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Overused grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Installing and switching synthetic tee lines gives organic grass the essential time it requires to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Synthetic turf plays well because it has an leveled, reliable surface. You’ll never have to be concerned about the clubface gripping the turf and affecting your shot again with artificial grass.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the turf will not get muddy and slippery throughout heavy rains. Synthetic turf will not get ripped up and result in dips and divots that are tripping hazards in the way that organic grass does.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce simpler and less expensive ways to replace portions instead of replacing the whole panel or tee line. Using less expensive items for the swinging areas decreases the cost of the project.
