The Next Generation of Tee Lines

Installing new Turfhound Mats by Eric J. von Hofen
When it comes to practice tee surface area, size does matter. Sometimes there is no other option when the practice area turf does not meet the requirements of the afternoon driving range junkies. You have to something to hit off of and Turfhound has what you need.

Removing old range mat material by Eric J. von Hofen
I look at it like this, Turfhound has developed the 5th generation of synthetic practice area material. Twenty five years ago, I remember hitting off of small pieces of Astro Turf at driving ranges in Northern Ohio. It worked and we didn’t know any better. Then we had the continuos roll of Astro Turf and we thought was great. One day someone thought to add sand and ground up tires into the Astro Turf. That didn’t work. Then developers looked at Nylon as a better surface to hit off of and it was for about six months until the sun and heavy use compacted the material. Polyester was next in line and that worked for about a year and a half. Polyethylene, the main ingredient in PVC, is the latest and greatest. In the picture above, we are removing a two year old tee line made of polyester.

The Turfhound mat is installed in interlocking pieces by Eric J. von Hofen
The TurfHound’s modular design makes it easy to add or remove turf panels and frame to adjust length as desired. I really like this option because we can spread out the wear and tear throughout the entire tee line.


This unique design allows the golfer to have three different options to hit from. Off the deck, off a tee and out of the rough. The moment you step on a TurfHound Tee Surface, you can feel the amazing difference compared to a conventional golf mat. It’s just like you’re standing on natural turf. Swing a club, hit a ball and the sensation continues. There’s no club-head bounce as you swing down and through the ball. No painful shocks to your wrists, elbows and shoulders. We installed this product three days ago and have received an incredible amount of positive feedback.
