And why Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington is the better option for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional turf on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to a lot of foot traffic and damage from golf clubs frequently swinging. Synthetic grass is the preferred choice considering its ability to endure these activities a lot more efficiently and maintain its wonderful looks in the long run.

Organic Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s tough to preserve and only looks good under certain settings. Natural grass will cultivate in various ways in Kennewick from one season to the next. Some places may be thicker, while other locations are sparse.

Frequent Mowing

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


Weeds thrive where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which most times, is done with harsh chemicals. This is not a single treatment situation. Herbicides are needed frequently to get rid of weeds.


Grubs, weevils, ants — the list goes on and on. In organic turf, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these pests at any given time. To control these pests, you need chemicals, which are not only harmful to the environment, but also the individuals using them.

Water Requirements

Traditional turf requires water to look healthy and green. Merely a few days of dry weather can have turf look sad and in need of maintenance. This means organic grass tee lines need to be watered often to make it look healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional grass will cultivate in various ways in Kennewick from one time of year to the next. Some places can be thicker, while other areas are patchy. If you’ve ever played on an organic turf tee line, you understand how there can be patches of grass missing from powerful swings, too.
