How to Clean Golf Clubs

Dirty golf clubs don’t just look unsightly, they affect performance too. Grime and dirt often nestle into the grooves of clubs after you’ve used them. This can hinder spin and speed, causing – let’s just say – unpredictable results.

If you get into the habit of cleaning your golf clubs regularly, it can be a lot easier to keep them performing better for longer. 

What you’ll need to clean your golf clubs
To scrub up your golf clubs to sparkling status, you’ll need:

- A plastic bucket (alternatively, you can use the kitchen sink)
- Lukewarm water
- Washing up liquid
- An old towel
- An old toothbrush or nylon brush 
- A damp cloth


How to clean your irons and wedges
1. To clean your metal clubs, fill your bucket with just enough warm – not hot – water to ensure the clubhead is submerged. From there, add a few drops of washing up liquid into the water. This will help to remove the grime in the grooves of the club.

2. Soak each club in the water for a few minutes before gently rubbing over the clubhead with a soft brush (an old toothbrush is ideal). 

3. Rinse the clubhead after brushing and dry well before moving to the next club. Once you’ve cleaned all the clubheads, you can add a bit of chrome polish to leave your clubs sparkling.


How to clean your woods and putter
The cleaning process for your driver, fairway, hybrid and putter is different as you want to avoid soaking these in water at all costs. Their heads contain different materials and can get damaged if fully submerged. They still need to be cleaned though. You can do this by following these simple steps:

1. Add a few drops of washing up liquid to a bucket of lukewarm water.

2. Dip the clubheads into the water before gently wiping them down with a damp cloth.

3. After you’ve cleaned the clubs, make sure you dry them thoroughly with a towel to ensure no excess liquid is left on the clubhead.


How to clean your grips
Grips are certainly not immune to dirt, so remember to set aside some time to clean these too. After all, if you lose your grip while hitting your shots, it’s not going to be pretty… 

All you’ll need is a damp cloth to simply wipe across the entire grip with warm water. Dry each one off with a towel. 

There you go – job done. You’re all ready for your next round. By playing with spotless clubs, you’re giving yourself every chance to clean up on the golf course!
