And why Southwest Greens of Connecticut is the better choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are vulnerable to endless foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs constantly swinging. Synthetic turf is a superior option considering its ability to endure these activities a lot more successfully and maintain its wonderful looks for a long time.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s challenging to take care of and only looks good with the right conditions. Natural turf will grow differently in Greenwich from one time of year to another. Some places may be more dense, while other portions are scarce.

Routine Mowing

To ensure that the grass is as short as you would see on a golf course, this may require daily mowing. Yes, you read that correctly. Daily. Consider the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you’re looking at a hefty bill.


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds require removal, which is usually done with unsafe chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides must be used regularly to get rid of weeds.


Weevils, ants, grubs — the list goes on. In natural grass, 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 environment, but also the individuals applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic grass requires water to appear lush and green. Merely a couple days of dry weather conditions can make grass seem sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, traditional turf tee lines must be watered all the time to make it look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional turf will grow in a variety of ways in Greenwich from one season to the next. Certain places can be more dense, while other places are sparse. If you’ve felt a traditional grass tee line, you know how there can be chunks of turf missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great All Year Long

Through synthetic grass, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They will never necessitate watering, fertilizing, or mowing, as a result, tee lines can open consistently. 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 almost never stays healthy. Setting up and substituting synthetic tee lines provides natural turf the much-needed recovery time.

Better Playability

Artificial turf plays well because it has an consistent, reliable surface. You will never have to be concerned about the clubface catching on the turf and interfering with your shot again with artificial grass.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the grass will not become muddy and slippery throughout rainstorms. Artificial turf won’t get ripped up and cause divots and dips that are tripping hazards like organic grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create simpler and more cost-efficient ways to replace parts rather than replacing an entire panel or tee line. Using more cost-effective materials for the hitting surfaces decreases the overall cost of the project.
