We have all been engaging in a little retail therapy since the start of the pandemic, which means we may have some shiny new possessions to occupy ourselves with. You may have just bought new clubs, new balls, or any number of other brand new golf accessories. If you are the proud owner of a brand new set of clubs and don’t want to get rid of your old clubs, you’re probably wondering what to do with the old set. 

Don’t trash your old equipment to make room for the new tools in your arsenal. There are a variety of golf equipment storage solutions to choose from. Here are some tips on how to store your golf clubs safely, so you can keep them in good condition for years to come. You may even be able to get some use out of them in the future. 

Don't just throw your bag in the closet

Before storing your clubs, there are some protective measures we recommend you take. Wash and dry your golf clubs thoroughly before storing them. Warm water and soap should be enough to get the grime off before you decide where to keep your clubs. Once you’ve let the clubs air dry, place them in a protective golf bag, making sure the interior of the bag is also clean and dry. 

Now that you’ve cleaned your equipment, it’s time to figure out where to put it. Storing your clubs in your house is an option if you have the space. This is great for long term storage, as long as you keep them in a dry, temperature controlled area. If you can’t spare the space in your house, you might also consider storing clubs in a long term storage unit. There are cost effective storage units that will keep your clubs protected from the elements. Storage facilities are a safe, efficient option for keeping your golf clubs in good condition for extended periods of time. 

Breaking out your old sticks

Whether you’re taking a break from the game or simply want to make room for new clubs, long term golf storage should be on your radar. Keeping your clubs clean, secure, and out of the way will help ensure their longevity until you’re ready to pick them back up. If you’re storing an old favorite set and intend to break them out of storage eventually, we highly recommend you check your clubs before hitting the course. Making sure your grip and club heads are still in good condition before playing is crucial.
