And why Southwest Greens Ontario is the perfect choice for tee lines.

Why Use Synthetic Grass Tee Lines?

Traditional grass on tee lines is quickly becoming the minority. Tee lines are subjected to a lot of foot traffic and damage from golf clubs continually swinging. Artificial grass is the superior choice because it can endure these activities far more effectively and maintain its wonderful looks for years to come.

Natural Grass Disadvantages

Traditional grass is finicky. It’s difficult to preserve and only looks right with the right conditions. Traditional turf will grow in a variety of ways in Toronto from season to season. Some portions may be thicker, while other areas are scarce.

Frequent Mowing

To guarantee that the turf is as short as you would see on a golf course, this could necessitate daily mowing. That’s right, you read that correctly. Daily. Consider the mower maintenance, time, and gasoline, and you’re in for a expensive bill.


You can often find weeds where grass grows. Weeds should be removed, which is usually done with noxious chemicals. This is not a single treatment situation. Herbicides are frequently required to keep weeds at bay.


Weevils, ants, grubs — it goes on. In organic turf, you’re sure to find one or more of these pests at some point. Chemicals are needed to deal with these pests, which are not only a strain on the environment, but also the individuals applying them.

Water Requirements

Traditional turf needs water to appear healthy and green. Just a few days of dry weather can make turf seem sad and in need of attention. Hence, natural grass tee lines must be watered frequently in order to appear healthy.

Uneven Surfaces

Traditional turf will cultivate in various ways in Toronto from season to season. Some places can be thicker, while other spots are scant. If you’ve felt an organic grass tee line, you’ve probably noticed how there can be chunks of grass missing from powerful swings, too.

Synthetic Grass Tee Line Advantages

Looks Great Year Round

With the use of artificial turf, tee lines will always look fantastic. They’ll never require fertilizing, mowing, or watering, which means that tee lines can stay open all the time. Time lost due to maintenance will no longer be an issue.

Complements Nature Grass

Synthetic is the ideal complement to natural grass. Because of excessive traffic, overused grass tee lines rarely stay healthy. Setting up and substituting artificial tee lines gives natural grass the crucial time it needs to recover.

Improved Playability

Synthetic turf plays well due to its even, predictable surface. You will never have to worry about the clubface gripping the grass and interfering with your shot again with artificial turf.

Safer Surface

There is a lower risk for injuries because the turf will not become muddy and slippery throughout rainstorms. Synthetic turf will not get torn apart and cause dips and divots that are tripping hazards like organic grass.

Flexible and Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce more convenient and more cost-efficient ways to replace portions as opposed to replacing the complete panel or tee line. Utilizing affordable items for the stance area reduces the cost of the project.
