With summer on the tips of our tongues, golf season is underway. From those playing off scratch to lofty handicaps, whatever your ability is like on the green, you will undoubtedly have struggled to store your golf clubs in your home. Below are some tips to help you to store your clubs in the best way without enraging those who live with you.
1. Think about ease of access
This may sound like an obvious one but it isn’t something that everyone does. When choosing where to store your golf clubs, think about how easy it is to get them out and into the car. Golf clubs are relatively large and hard items, therefore, if they come into contact with fragile objects it may not end well.
2. The garage may not be the obvious choice
Many opt to store golf clubs in their garage as it outside of the house and out of the way. However, if you use your garage to store your car (an obvious home for the vehicle) then consider how easy it is to get them out of the garage. Also, is your garage secure? Golf clubs are a lot easier to steal than a car, so if you’ve invested lots of money on your clubs then you’ll want to store them in a secure environment.
3. Think of those who live with you
An argument over an unnecessary item stored in the house is probably something most homes have encountered – it’s a rite of passage for many families. However, think about the knock-on effect that storing your golf clubs indoors can have, especially if you have young children and/or pets. Given their weight and the aforementioned durability, they aren’t the most house-friendly items.
4. Consider temperatures and water
If you are considering using your garage or the garden shed to store your golf clubs, consider how the elements will affect them. If you’ve invested good money in your clubs then the last thing you want is for them to get ruined whilst they spend the majority of their life in damp and darkness.
5. Think about their maintenance
After playing a round of 18, you may want to give the clubs a good clean. If you are able to do this presumably out your back garden, then think about where you’re storing them and whether you’ll need to completely dry the clubs before putting them away. The last thing you want is for the damp clubs to create a bad smell in your garage or shed, which could have an impact on the golf bag as well as other items.
