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

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural turf on tee lines is no longer the norm. Tee lines are vulnerable to constant foot traffic and wear from golf clubs constantly swinging. Artificial turf is a better option because it can withstand these activities a lot more successfully and preserve its appearance in the long run.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Natural grass is finicky. It’s tough to preserve and only looks appealing under certain settings. Traditional grass will grow differently in Charlotte from one season to the next. Some places may be thicker, while other locations are scant.

Routine Mowing

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


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds must be removed, which more often than not, is done with toxic 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.


Weevils, ants, grubs — the list goes on. In traditional turf, you’ll definitely find at least one of these pests at any given time. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which aren’t only a strain on the nature, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Natural grass requires water to appear full and green. Just a couple days of dry conditions can cause turf look sad and in need of maintenance. This means organic turf tee lines have to be watered all the time to make it look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Organic turf will cultivate differently in Charlotte from season to season. Certain places may be thicker, while other places are scant. If you’ve ever played on an organic grass tee line, you understand how there can be swaths of grass missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

With artificial grass, tee lines maintain their appearance over time. They will never require watering, fertilizing, or mowing, hence, tee lines can open all the time. Maintenance downtime is a thing of the past.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic complements natural grass beautifully. Overused grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Implementing and replacing synthetic tee lines provides natural turf the much-needed recovery time.

Improved Playability

Synthetic turf plays well because it has an consistent, reliable surface. You’ll never have to be troubled about the clubface catching on the grass and affecting your shot again with synthetic turf.

Safer Surface

There is reduced likelihood for injuries because the grass will not get swampy and slippery throughout heavy rainfall. Artificial turf won’t get ripped apart and result in divots and dips that are tripping hazards in the way that organic grass does.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create simpler and more cost-effective ways to replace pieces rather than replacing the whole panel or tee line. Applying less expensive materials for the swinging areas lowers the project’s cost.
