And why Southwest Greens Pittsburgh is the ideal option for tee lines.

Do Artificial Turfs Really Cut Costs?

The short answer is — absolutely! The majority of golf facilities lose money due to poor weather or maintenance concerns, but synthetic turf tee lines never require downtime. After installation expenses, your facility will soon generate enough revenue to quickly recoup your initial investment.

Reduce Tee Line Maintenance

Controlling your tee line operating cost never been easier than with synthetic turf. Here are a number of ways ditching natural grass will reduce costs.

No Mowing

Artificial turf will never require mowing. That means there will be no need to close the tee lines, no need to pay a staff to mow, and there are no mowing equipment expenditures.

No Herbicides

Herbicides must be used regularly to get rid of weeds — not when you have artificial grass.

No Pesticides

Pesticides are notoriously unhealthy, and for good reason. They are corrosive chemicals and expensive too.

No Watering

For a 1,000 square foot installation, this can mean savings of 70,000 gallons annually, or as much as $350 saved on the water bill, alone.

Cost-Effective, Enhanced Playability

Facilities are quickly figuring out that waterless, easy to care for synthetic turf driving lines and putting areas make customers happy and bring value to the bottom line. Synthetic hitting stations, putting green turf, and tee lines enable you to swing from a surface with a authentic feel but with a level of resilience that is not found in nature.

Minimized Maintenance

Without the need for routine pest control, mowing, and fertilizing, the ROI of artificial grass simply makes much more sense.


Allows the player to use all of their clubs to fine-tune their swing without ripping apart the turf. Also, you can still sink your tee into the turf as you would on a regular surface.

Safe Play

The grass will not get muddy and slippery during heavy rains, and won’t result in dips and divots.

Limitless Design Options

Really, the sky is the limit. Because artificial turf is extremely versatile, it can be positioned in many locations, and in several styles.

Modular Designs

Modular tee lines produce simpler and more cost-efficient ways to replace portions instead of replacing an entire panel or tee line.

Continuous Tee Line

Allows the tee line to be set wherever on the surface while maintaining a neat, natural appearance.

Flexible Hitting Mats

Hitting mats may be easily rotated to maximize the lifespan of the hitting area, while still providing clearly defined hitting stations for symmetry.
