And why Southwest Greens Northern CA West is the best solution for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Natural grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are vulnerable to regular foot traffic and damage from golf clubs continually swinging. Artificial turf is the better selection since it has the ability to endure these activities far more successfully and preserve its appearance at the end of the day.

Traditional Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass has several quirks. It’s challenging to preserve and only looks appealing under particular circumstances. Organic grass will grow in various ways in San Francisco from one season to the next. Some locations can be thicker, while other areas are sparse.

Frequent Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you’d find on a golf course, this could necessitate daily mowing. Yes, you read that correctly. Daily. Factor in the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you can prepare for a hefty bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds must be removed, which is usually done with unsafe chemicals. This is not a single treatment situation. Herbicides are frequently required to be free of weeds forever.


Grubs, weevils, ants — it goes on. In organic turf, there’s a good chance you’ll find one or more of these pests in the future. Again, chemicals are used to control these pests, which are not only a strain on the environment, but also the humans applying them.

Water Requirements

Organic grass needs water to appear full and green. Just a couple days of dry weather can cause turf look sad and neglected. This means traditional turf tee lines have to be watered all the time to make it look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Natural turf will grow in various ways in San Francisco from season to season. Certain spots may be more dense, while other areas are sparse. If you’ve felt a traditional grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be swaths of grass missing from hard-hitting swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

With artificial turf, tee lines will look great all the time. They will never require watering, fertilizing, or mowing, hence, tee lines can remain open consistently. Gone are the days of time lost due to maintenance.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic complements natural grass beautifully. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines rarely remain healthy. Installing and replacing synthetic tee lines gives traditional grass the much-needed recovery time.

Better Playability

Synthetic turf plays well because of its even, predictable surface. You will never have to be troubled about the clubface grabbing the grass and interfering with your shot again with synthetic turf.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the grass will never become muddy and slippery over rainstorms. Artificial grass will not get ripped apart and generate dips and divots that are tripping hazards in the way that organic grass does.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines make easier and more cost-effective ways to replace pieces as opposed to replacing an entire panel or tee line. Applying affordable materials for the hitting surfaces reduces the project’s cost.
