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

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional grass on tee lines has become inferior in a short amount of time. Tee lines are exposed to a lot of foot traffic and abuse from golf clubs constantly swinging. Artificial grass is a optimal selection since it has the ability to endure these activities much more efficiently and still look great for years to come.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Natural grass is finicky. It’s challenging to keep up and only looks right with the right conditions. Organic grass will grow differently in Naperville from one time of year to another. Some areas may be more dense, while other locations are sparse.

Frequent Mowing

To ensure that the grass is as short as you’d find on a golf course, this could necessitate daily mowing. Yes, you read that right. Daily. Also take into account the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you’re looking at a expensive bill.


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds require removal, which more often than not, is done with harsh chemicals. This isn’t a scenario where you can treat it once and be done with it. Herbicides must be used regularly to keep weeds away.


Grubs, weevils, ants — it goes on and on. In organic 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 nature, but also the individuals using them.

Water Requirements

Natural grass requires water to look lush and green. Merely a couple days of dry conditions can have turf seem sad and in need of attention. Hence, organic turf tee lines have to be watered frequently to make it look well-nourished.

Uneven Surfaces

Natural grass will cultivate in various ways in Naperville from season to season. Certain spots can be more dense, while other areas are scant. If you’ve ever played on a traditional grass tee line, you understand how there can be patches of turf missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

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

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines almost never stays healthy. Setting up and substituting artificial tee lines provides traditional grass the much-needed recovery time.

Improved Playability

Synthetic turf plays well because it has an leveled, predictable surface. You’ll never have to be concerned about the clubface catching on the grass and interfering with your shot again with synthetic turf.

Safer Surface

There are fewer chances for injuries because the surface will not get swampy and slippery during heavy rains. Synthetic grass will not get ripped apart and generate dips and divots that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce simpler and more cost-efficient ways to substitute pieces instead of replacing an entire panel or tee line. Utilizing more cost-effective components for the hitting surfaces reduces the project’s cost.
