Maintaining and Caring for Your Golf Clubs
Living in Myrtle Beach, SC is great. What’s not to love with easy access to the beach and Intracoastal Waterway, award-winning golf courses, restaurants and nightly entertainment, but living at the beach comes with humidity and moisture, which can wreak havoc on your golf clubs if not stored properly. If you have invested in a nice set of golf clubs you want to take care of them so they will take care of you on the course. Get the most out of your clubs with these few suggestions from the Glens Golf Group on how to best care for your golf clubs.
- Storage is very important. It’s easy to leave, or forget, your clubs in the trunk of the car or place them in the garage, but the trouble with this is that it’s either hot or cold and you don’t want the moisture to ruin your clubs. The best bet is to store the clubs in a dry place at room temperature. An indoor closet would be a great option.
- Clean your clubs after play. Keep a golf towel handy and after a rough shot, wipe down the shaft and face of the club to remove any debris. You can also soak the clubs in warm soapy water to loosen up debris and then use an old toothbrush to really scrub them clean. Make sure the clubs are completely dry before storing them away. This goes for playing in the rain as well, you don’t want any clubs to rust.
- Use headcovers for your woods. Treat these clubs more delicately than your others as they can get easy nicked and bruised in a golf bag.
- And finally, inspect your grips. If you notice any worn or torn spots it’s probably time to replace them. You can change them on your own or take them to a golf repair shop. A good grip is essential for a good shot.
With these simple suggestions for maintaining and cleaning your clubs, you’ll be able to prolong your set of golf clubs for many years to come.
