How to Store Your Golf Clubs during the Winter (and the rest of the year)

Proper storage of your golf clubs plays a massive role in keep them in excellent condition and extending their lifespan. It can help prevent rust, premature wear, corrosion, and more. Below are some best practices you can follow to ensure you're maintaining the condition of your golf clubs so that they perform their best on the course. 


Clean Before Storing: 

Perhaps the most important thing you can do to prevent premature wear and corrosion from occurring on your golf clubs is thoroughly cleaning then after every single round. Dirt, grass, and moisture left on the clubs can cause the club to deteriorate over time.

The best way to clean your golf clubs after every round is by using a golf club specific cleaner like the Club Doctor - Golf Club Cleaner. Cleaners like this ensure that all the dirt, grime, and potential harsh chemicals from the grass are removed from your club, prevent any damage from occurring during storage. 


Dry Thoroughly: 

We've all played those rounds where either the course is soaking wet or maybe it is even raining outside. During these rounds, our club heads and club shafts usually get wet. Many people finish the round and just throw their bag in the trunk and forget about it. When the moisture stays on your clubs and shafts, rust starts to develop over time. This rust can devalue your golf clubs and potentially even effect their performance on the course.

Maybe your clubs have already developed a little rust on the shafts or club heads. Luckily, there are products like Club Doctor - Golf Club Polish that can assist in removing that rust and restoring the original finish of your clubs. Once the rust is removed, ensure that you're clubs are completely dry before storage to ensure the rust does not present itself again.


Store in Temperature Controlled Environment:

Be considerate of the environment in which you store your golf clubs. Avoid places that have significant fluctuations in temperature. Bad places to store your clubs may be the trunk of your car or even your garage, depending on the climate of the area in which you live. Quick and significant changes in temperature can cause the metal in the clubs to warp over time. This will greatly impact their performance and they will not function as intended. 


Keep Your Grips Clean:

Your golf grips are perhaps the most important part of your golf club to maintain. Ensuring your golf grips are in the best shape possible is essential to your golf game. The best way to do so is with a golf specific grip cleaner such as the Golf Club Cleaner from Club Doctor. Cleaners like this are great at removing the build up of dirt, grime, skin oils, and more from your golf clubs without causing the rubber material to deteriorate. Using chemicals like dish soap quicken the process of your golf grips drying out and actually shorten their life span. 



Proper storage and care of your golf clubs are essential to maintain their performance and extend their lifespan. Regularly cleaning your clubs, ensuring they are dry before storage, and keeping them in a temperature-controlled environment will help prevent damage and corrosion. Using specialized products like Club Doctor's cleaners and polish will enhance the clubs' longevity, ensuring they remain in optimal condition for the best play on the course.
