And why Southwest Greens Flagstaff is the ideal option for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Organic turf on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to endless foot traffic and damage from golf clubs continually taking swings. Artificial turf is the superior option considering its ability to hold up to these activities a lot more efficiently and maintain its wonderful looks for a long time.

Traditional Grass Disadvantages

Natural grass can be fickle. It’s challenging to maintain and only looks right under particular circumstances. Organic turf will grow differently in Flagstaff from one season to the next. Certain locations can 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 could require daily mowing. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Also take into account the time, gasoline, and mower maintenance, and you’re looking at a costly bill.


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds should be removed, which more often than not, is done with unsafe chemicals. This is not a single treatment situation. Herbicides must be used regularly to keep weeds at bay.


Grubs, weevils, ants — the list goes on and on. In organic turf, there’s a good chance you’ll find one or more of these pests at any given time. To control these pests, you need chemicals, which are not only damaging to the environment, but also the people applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic turf needs water to look healthy and green. Merely a couple days of dry conditions can cause turf appear sad and in need of maintenance. Hence, traditional grass tee lines must be watered often to look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional grass will cultivate in various ways in Flagstaff from season to season. Certain spots can be thicker, while other places are sparse. If you’ve felt a natural turf tee line, you understand how there can be patches of grass missing from aggressive swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great All Year Long

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

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Due to a high volume of traffic, grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Setting up and substituting artificial tee lines provides natural grass the much-needed recovery time.

Enhanced Playability

Artificial grass plays well because of its consistent, predictable surface. You will never have to be concerned about the clubface catching on the turf and affecting your shot again with artificial grass.

Safer Surface

There is reduced likelihood for injuries because the grass will never become muddy and slippery over heavy rains. Synthetic 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 make easier and more cost-efficient ways to substitute portions instead of replacing the whole panel or tee line. Using less expensive materials for the hitting surfaces decreases the overall cost of the project.
