How to Clean Your Golf Clubs

Keeping your golf clubs clean is a simple task that could actually enhance your golf game.

The game of golf is not just about visiting the greens and hitting the golf balls. After a very tiring day of swinging, you still need to clean and polish your golf clubs. It is not really a good thing to store your clubs with all the dirt it got from your game.

There are so many ways to clean golf clubs. You can search on the web or any nearby stores and spend a little penny on some cleaning kits. And honestly, it is worth it as these kits do work well.

Having golf clubs is not really that cheap, hence it can be considered as an investment  so you want to make sure your set will last long. The right cleaning process will prolong its lifespan and will definitely improve your golf game.

But it is not always necessary that you browse the online shops for the materials you will need. You can just simply gather up a couple household items that you already have handy. I’m sure of it. And the do-it-yourself set up and method won’t cost any money.

Here is a list of materials you will need for your cleaning project:

  1. A plastic bucket;
  2. a mild dishwashing detergent;
  3. an old toothbrush or other brush with soft, plastic bristles;
  4. and an old towel for drying.

That’s just basically it. And off you go – you can now start the process. Put ​​a little of the dishwashing liquid into the bottom of your plastic bucket, then add warm water to create suds. Make sure the water is warm, but not too hot. Then place your irons in the bucket. Clean out the grooves using the brush. Lastly, rinse it off and dry the clubhead. Always note that you should  simply use a damp cloth to wipe down real leather grips and make sure to dry the leather right away.

Cleaning golf clubs is a simple process, and it’s important to do it on a regular basis (if you play regularly, of course) to prevent the build-up of gunk that can lessen the effectiveness of your golf clubs. You also need to do this to prevent rusting or any possible damage to a club’s finish – as storing it for a long time can damage it as well.

This is as important as practicing your short game on the greens. You would surely be surprised at how even a little dirt can influence the accuracy of your stroke and swings. It could just mean the difference between landing on the middle of the fairway or in the rough.

Also, please always make sure that you know what materials your club and golf headcovers are made from. There are different materials for the three different parts of a golf club so they need a few different approaches when it comes to being cleaned up.

Always remember, in order to improve your golf game and make your clubs last longer, keep them clean.
