A round of golf is a great way to relax and unwind, but the game is often only as great as the course it is played on. The grass of a golf course must be kept perfectly trimmed, watered, evened, and fertilized to ensure that players will continue to come back to the course, and this type of upkeep can cost golf course owners a substantial amount in labor and material costs. Even with the best upkeep, grass can still grow unevenly, and the environment outside can dictate just what the grass may decide to do, taking a level of control out of the course owner’s hands and potentially causing customers to shy away from a certain course. The installation of artificial grass in certain parts of a golf course, such as tee lines, can help course owners to ensure a great golfing experience to their customers while still maintaining a natural aesthetic appeal and saving on labor costs.
Aside from driving down maintenance costs, artificial grasses used on tee lines and other areas on a golf course also promote water conservation and help to sustain the local environment . Natural grasses will need quite a bit of water to keep healthy and functional throughout the year, and this water can often be better used throughout the community. One of the many beneficial aspects of artificial grasses is that they never need to be watered to be kept lush and beautiful, so course owners can save this very valuable resource and conserve the natural environment around their area.
After rainstorms or other types of inclement weather, artificial grasses will also dry faster than natural grass. Natural grass can stay wet for days at a time after a storm, as the ground underneath becomes saturated and muddy. Not only does this create an injury hazard, but it can produce a messy situation as well. Mud is easily tracked through indoor areas after stepping foot on a moist golf tee line area, creating a need for cleanup and wasted time. Today’s modern artificial grass, however, is installed with highly efficient drainage systems that help to keep the area dry and functional even after the strongest bouts of rain. These drainage systems allow playtime to resume faster, and maneuvering the course to be easier during all times of the year, allowing customers to enjoy their favorite course no matter what the weather may have in store for a particular day.
Today’s artificial grasses are not only beneficial in terms of drainage, they are also exceptionally aesthetically pleasing. The technology used in creating artificial grass has advanced to a point that these grasses really look and feel like their natural counterparts, and they stay lush all year round. A person can have an area of artificial grass installed within their golf course that looks and feels just like the real thing, but with none of the hassle that comes with maintaining a natural grass area. The grass can be crafted to look like any type of natural grass, allowing course owners to keep their landscape looking natural and inviting.
Golf is a game that can be determined by the course it is played on, which makes it important that course owners make the best choices in maintaining and creating their golf areas. Tee lines benefit from artificial grass installations in many ways, and these types of grasses can help to please customers all year round.
