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

Do Synthetic Turfs Really Save Money?

Simply put — yes! Most golf courses lose money as a result of poor weather or maintenance issues, but synthetic turf tee lines do not require downtime. After installation costs, your facility will quickly generate enough revenue to see return on your initial investment.

Reduce Tee Line Maintenance

Bringing your tee line operating cost under control is easier than ever with artificial turf. Here are a number of ways to lower costs by getting rid of organic grass.

No Mowing

Synthetic grass never needs to be mowed. This eliminates the need to close the tee lines, no need to hire someone to mow, and no mowing equipment expenditures.

No Herbicides

Herbicides must be used regularly to keep weeds at bay — not with artificial turf.

No Pesticides

Pesticides are notoriously unhealthy, and for for a valid reason. They are caustic agents and expensive too.

No Watering

For a 1,000 square foot implementation, this can equate to savings of 70,000 gallons annually, or up to $350 saved on the water bill, alone.

Cost-Effective, Better Playability

Facilities are quickly figuring out that waterless, easy to care for artificial turf driving lines and putting areas make players happy and add value to the bottom line. Artificial tee lines, hitting stations, and putting green turf enable you to swing from a surface with a seamless feel but with a level of resilience that isn’t found in nature.

Reduced Maintenance

Without the need for routine fertilizing, pest control, and mowing, the return-on-investment of artificial turf simply makes much more sense.


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

Safe Play

The turf will not get muddy and slippery during heavy rainfall, and won’t generate divots and dips.

Limitless Design Possibilities

Indeed, the sky’s the limit. Because synthetic grass is so flexible, it can be used in a variety of locations, and in many styles.

Modular Designs

Modular tee lines create simpler and more cost-efficient ways to substitute pieces rather than replacing an entire panel or tee line.

Continuous Tee Line

Enables the tee line to be set anywhere along the surface with a clean, simple appearance.

Flexible Hitting Mats

Hitting mats could be easily rotated to maximize the life of the hitting area, while still supplying clearly defined hitting stations for regularity.
