Golfing is becoming more and more popular as a hobby. You don’t have to be Tiger Woods to have a set of golf clubs that you love to bust out on the weekends. However, since you are not a professional you might have insecurities and questions when it comes to storing golfing equipment. But, no worries! We are here to give you some basic but super-useful tips on how to take care of your golfing accessories. This way your golfing equipment will stay in great shape for a long time.
There are two kinds of storage when it comes to storing golfing equipment
Depending on how often you use your golf clubs and other golfing accessories, you are looking at two types of storage:
- Day-to-day storage (short term storage)
- Long-term storage
In every guide for moving there should be a segment dedicated to storing and maintaining golfing equipment, since golfing has been gaining serious popularity in the past decade or even longer.
Short term storage for golfing equipment
This type of storage applies only when you need to put away your gear for a maximum of a few days.
The car trunk
You might think that your car trunk is a great option. After all, you use them every weekend. However, this is not a great idea. First, while driving around your equipment will be tossing and turning, and you will very likely damage it. Second, temperatures can rise very fast and very high in the trunk. Consequently, your equipment can get damaged. The glue can start losing its strength and there are many other consequences.
Storing things in the garage is a common practice for many folks. This can be a pretty good solution for golf gear storage, but only for a few days. Plus, if you choose this as your storage place, know that your garage must be moisture-free.
Long term storage for golfing equipment
This is a mistake that happens very often when packing and unpacking your things after a move. After a relocation, you will be tempted to throw your golfing stuff anywhere. Hopefully, you won’t. When storing items for a longer time then just a few weeks, you must be very careful.
We are back in the garage. Yet, now it is a different story. Storing for a few days is one thing, but longer storage in the garage is not always a great solution. The only way garage storage can be a good solution for long term storage is if you can control the temperature and the humidity in this space. Otherwise, move on to the next option.
Storing golfing gear in your home is your best bet. However, it is not always that simple. You do not always have extra space. Nevertheless, if you want to leave your stuff and know it is safe, this will be your best bet.
No matter where you end up storing your golfing equipment, you must pay attention to temperature, humidity, and the golfing bag. Humidity is not your friend in this instance and neither is extremely low or high temperature. They can severely damage your golfing accessories. Also, before you pack anything for storage make sure that everything is clean and wiped down. The same goes for your golfing bag. If you manage to do all of this, you will be pretty much set without any worries. All you would need to think about is your next tea time and a hole in one.
