And why Southwest Greens of Asheville is the better solution for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are exposed to endless foot traffic and damage from golf clubs constantly swinging. Artificial turf is the optimal selection because it can endure these activities far more successfully and still look great for years to come.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Organic grass is finicky. It’s hard to maintain and only looks appealing under particular circumstances. Traditional turf will grow in a variety of ways in Asheville from season to season. Some locations can be more dense, while some other locations are sparse.

Frequent Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you would experience on a golf course, this could require daily mowing. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Factor in the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you’re looking at a costly bill.


Where grass grows, you’ll often find weeds thriving, too. Weeds must be removed, which most times, is done with harsh chemicals. This is not a one-and-done treatment. Herbicides are frequently required to be free of weeds forever.


Ants, grubs, weevils — it goes on and on. In natural turf, you’re sure to find one or more of these pests in the future. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which are not only damaging to the nature, but also the humans using them.

Water Requirements

Traditional grass requires water to look lush and green. Merely a few days of dry weather conditions can make grass seem sad and in need of attention. This means organic turf tee lines have to be watered all the time to make it look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional turf will grow differently in Asheville from one time of year to the next. Certain spots may be thicker, while other areas are scant. If you’ve felt a natural grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be chunks of turf missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year In, Year Out

With artificial turf, tee lines will always look fantastic. They will never need mowing, watering, or fertilizing, which means that tee lines can open at all times. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Overused grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Implementing and substituting synthetic tee lines provides traditional grass the essential time it requires to recover.

Enhanced Playability

Artificial grass plays well due to its leveled, predictable surface. You’ll never have to worry about the clubface gripping the turf and interfering with your shot again with artificial grass.

Safer Surface

There are fewer chances for injuries because the grass will not become muddy and slippery during rainstorms. Artificial turf won’t get torn apart and result in divots and dips that are tripping hazards like natural grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce easier and more cost-effective ways to change parts rather than replacing the complete panel or tee line. Applying less expensive components for the stance area lowers the overall cost of the project.
