And why Southwest Greens of Atlanta is the ideal solution for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional turf on tee lines is no longer the norm. Tee lines are exposed to constant foot traffic and wear from golf clubs continually taking swings. Artificial turf is a optimal choice considering its ability to withstand these activities much more effectively and maintain its wonderful looks in the long run.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s challenging to keep up and only looks good with the right conditions. Organic turf will cultivate in various ways in Atlanta from one season to the next. Some locations can be more dense, while some other portions are scarce.

Frequent Mowing

To keep the turf as short as you would find on a golf course, this could require daily mowing. Yes, you read that correctly. Daily. Also take into account the time, gasoline, and mower maintenance, and you can prepare for a hefty bill.


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which more often than not, is done with harsh chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides are needed frequently to keep weeds away.


Grubs, weevils, ants — the list goes on. In natural grass, you’re sure to find one or more of these pests at any given time. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which are not only damaging to the environment, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Traditional grass needs water to appear healthy and green. Only a few days of dry weather can cause grass appear sad and in need of maintenance. This implies that natural grass tee lines need to be watered regularly to make it look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic grass will cultivate differently in Atlanta from one time of year to the next. Certain places may be more dense, while other places are scant. If you’ve ever played on a traditional grass tee line, you know how there can be patches of grass missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

With the use of synthetic turf, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They will never need mowing, watering, or fertilizing, which means that tee lines can open at all times. Maintenance downtime is a thing of the past.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic complements natural grass beautifully. Overused grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Setting up and replacing synthetic tee lines provides traditional grass the crucial time it needs to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Synthetic grass plays well because of its even, reliable surface. You will never have to be concerned about the clubface gripping the turf and affecting your shot again with synthetic grass.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the turf will not get muddy and slippery during heavy rains. Artificial turf will not get torn apart and cause divots and dips that are tripping hazards like organic grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make simpler and more cost-effective ways to change parts rather than replacing the complete panel or tee line. Applying more cost-effective components for the hitting surfaces decreases the overall cost of the project.
