Turf for a tournament field?

Looking in getting some turf for our tournament field when we move to our new location. Wanted to see what other experiences field owners have happened since they either installed it or took it out. I've had some tell me that its not even worth it and the problems with drainage and up keep and some other things. Also one field owner told me that after installing it, the tournament scene has greatly increased in his area and it was a well worth investment.

I've contacted some turf vendors and its looking like roughly .50 a sq ft. is the normal going rate but shipping really sucks depending on where it is. If anyone is selling some turf or know of some football fields being taken out let me know. Just trying to plan for next year already.

Well, I dont have too much experience with turf, but I've been to alot of turf fields talk about it, thought about it but in the end the maintenance and the upkeep of it can become a hassle, rather then just mowing some nice green grass..


drainage is one of the main problems with turf, also you always have to readjust it/roll it
