And why Southwest Greens of Augusta is the best solution for tee lines.


Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Organic grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to regular foot traffic and wear from golf clubs frequently swinging. Synthetic turf is the better choice considering its ability to withstand these activities far more efficiently and still look great at the end of the day.


Organic Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass has several quirks. It’s tough to preserve and only looks good under particular circumstances. Natural turf will grow in various ways in Augusta from from one season to the next. Some portions can be thicker, while other areas are scant.

Regular Mowing

To ensure that the grass is as short as you’d see on a golf course, this can require you to mow daily. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Consider the gasoline, mower maintenance, and time, and you can prepare for a hefty bill.


Herbicides

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


Pesticides

Ants, grubs, weevils — it goes on. In traditional grass, you’re sure to find at least one of these pests at some point. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which aren’t only bad for the environment, but also the humans applying them.


Water Requirements

Traditional turf requires water to appear lush and green. Just a couple days of dry weather conditions can make grass seem sad and neglected. This implies that organic turf tee lines must be watered all the time in order to appear well-nourished.


Uneven Surfaces

Natural turf will cultivate differently in Augusta from one season to the next. Certain areas can be thicker, while other spots are sparse. If you’ve ever played on a traditional turf tee line, you know how there can be patches of grass missing from powerful swings, too.


Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

With the use of synthetic grass, tee lines will always look fantastic. They’ll never necessitate fertilizing, mowing, or watering, as a result, tee lines can open at all times. Time lost due to maintenance will no longer be an issue.


Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is an excellent complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Implementing and replacing artificial tee lines provides traditional turf the much-needed recovery time.


Enhanced Playability

Synthetic grass plays well because it has an consistent, reliable surface. You will never have to be troubled about the clubface gripping the turf and interfering with your shot again with synthetic grass.


Safer Surface

There are fewer chances for injuries because the surface won’t get swampy and slippery throughout rainstorms. Synthetic turf won’t get torn apart and cause divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.


Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create more convenient and more cost-efficient ways to change portions as opposed to replacing the complete panel or tee line. Utilizing affordable components for the swinging areas lowers the overall cost of the project.
