8 Simple Ways to Look After Your Golf Clubs - Golf Holidays Direct

When you going on a golf break it is important to know how to look after your clubs while you're away. Below is a list of 8 great ways to do this. If you want to take care of your golf clubs you need to take care of your clubs. Just a few quick maintenance measures will keep your golf clubs in tip-top condition and will last as long as you want them to continue playing.

Here are eight easy ways to take care of your golf clubs:

1. Properly Store Your Golf Clubs
The best place to store your golf clubs indoors, as in your house or apartment, is between uses or long-term. Never store your clubs in the trunk of the car long-term, especially in very hot locations. (High heat will weaken the glues holding the grip and the clubhead)


2. Always dry your golf clubs after use
No need to kick up rust! When you're coming into the course after a rainy day, just give your clubs a fast wipe-down before throwing them back into the closet or corner.


3. Own and Use a Golf Towel
"Golf towel" can mean any towel that you add to your golf bag or a towel made especially for golfers with reinforced eyehole and fancy wicking fibres.
Attach one to your bag, and use it to wipe down the club faces and grips during your round, particularly when either moisture or debris occurs.


4. Put Headcovers on Your Woods
Headcovers help shield your drivers and woods' more fragile and more easily harmed heads from damage when you pull them out of the golf bag and stuff them back in. , while jostling in a trunk of a vehicle or on the back of a golf cart.
Covers for the Irons? Needless to say. (The pros don't use them.) For your putter? Not required, but never a bad idea. Many putters are sold with headcovers.


5. Clean Those Clubheads
Give your golf clubs a cleaning at least every few rounds, making sure that the grooves and etchings on the clubheads avoid dirt and debris. It is easy and not time-consuming, and needs only a soft-borsted cloth, some warm water (and suds) and a towel to wipe the clubs dry.


6. Make sure you clean your grips
Holding your handles clean-removing dirt, pollen, sunscreen stains, sweat-will make them last longer. And the grips are the one aspect of your golf clubs that you definitely plan to replace soon, so it's a smart idea to make them last longer.


7. Inspect the Grips for wear and tear
Be sure to check for signs of wear while cleaning your grips. Inspect the grips for polished areas, showing slickness, plus for areas scratched or cracks. These are signals that the exploration of new grips is needed. Good grips are key to a successful golf course-after all, you must be able to hold onto the ball.
Re-gripping is something that you can do yourself if you are an individual who likes DIY. But it's simpler and not very costly to re-grip a pro shop (depending on the new grips you choose).


8. Inspect the Shafts regularly
Take a look for dents, nicks or splits in the shafts when you wipe the shafts with a soft, dry towel (because you recall doing that every time you clean your clubs, right?). If you see either of these, it may be time to replace the shaft (shafts will last forever by playing regular golf, but by being banged around they can be damaged).
