Golf Safari SA has a range of exciting and stunning establishments for guests to enjoy, bring your clubs along and nurture them between games by treating them to these useful care tips.
Caring for clubs
- Invest in a good bag
- Wipe heads after use
- Wipe grips and replace when worn
- Use headcovers
- Clean thoroughly at home
1. Buy a decent golf bag
Would you toss your clubs into any old bag prior to heading to a golf course? Think of the scandal when you arrive. The club president won’t be pleased. Neither will your playing partner. They’ll feel embarrassed to take to the course with you.
A good sized golf bag looks professional and it protects your clubs when you take to the course. Slide each club back into the bag after you have finished using it and you prevent it getting scratched.
2. Wipe heads
Attach a golf towel to your bag and get into the habit of wiping your club head after every stroke. By keeping your club face clean you’ll ensure it makes good contact with the ball, a quick wipe between shots prevents dirt hardening on the club.
This is especially important if you are playing in rainy conditions. Keep the face clean to make a solid contact.
3. Clean grips
Give the shaft of the club a quick wipe after you clean the face of your club. Check for signs of damage when you clean the grips. If you see shiny areas or there are signs of excess wear it might be time to replace them with something new.
4. Use headcovers
Cover the heads of woods when you place them inside bags. Left uncovered they might clash with the irons in your bag and this could damage the surface area.
Place a cover over the head and this protects the club, keeping it in perfect condition.
5. Wash the clubs
Fill a bucket or plastic bowl with warm, soapy water and remove dirt from the club face using a soft brush. Towel dry the heads afterwards to leave them sparkling, then pop them back in your bag ready to use the next time you play a round of golf.
