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

Do Synthetic Turfs Really Save Money?

Put simply — yes! The majority of golf facilities lose money because of weather conditions or maintenance difficulties, but artificial turf tee lines never require downtime. After installation expenses, your facility will quickly earn enough revenue to get a return on your initial investment.

Reduce Tee Line Maintenance

Controlling your tee line operating cost never been easier than with artificial grass. Here are some ways ditching natural grass will reduce costs.

No Mowing

Synthetic turf will never need mowing. That means there will never be a need to close the tee lines, no need to pay a staff to mow, and no mowing equipment expenditures.

No Herbicides

Herbicides are needed frequently to get rid of weeds — not with artificial turf.

No Pesticides

Pesticides have a bad reputation, and for justified reasons. They are caustic substances and expensive too.

No Watering

For a 1,000 square foot installation, this can equate to savings of 70,000 gallons yearly, or up to $350 off the water bill, alone.

Cost-Effective, Improved Playability

Facilities are rapidly discovering that waterless, easy to care for artificial driving lines and putting areas make customers satisfied and contribute to the bottom line. Artificial putting green turf, tee lines, and hitting stations enable you to swing from a surface with a natural feel but with longevity that isn’t found in nature.

Decreased Maintenance

Without the need for standard fertilizing, pest control, and mowing, the ROI of synthetic turf simply makes the most sense.


Allows the guest to practice their swing with all of their clubs without tearing apart the grass. Also, you can still bury your tee into the grass as you would on a regular surface.

Safe Play

The grass will not get muddy and slippery throughout heavy rains, and won’t get divots and dips.

Limitless Design Possibilities

Certainly, the sky’s the limit. Because artificial turf is extremely flexible, it can be used in anywhere, and in a variety of styles.

Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make simpler and less expensive ways to replace parts as opposed to replacing the whole panel or tee line.

Continuous Tee Line

Enables the tee line to be placed wherever on the surface with a clean, natural appearance.

Versatile Hitting Mats

Hitting mats can be conveniently rotated to extend the life of the hitting area, while still offering precisely defined hitting stations for consistency.
