    With your golf clubs striking the dirt and raising the grass on nearly every shot on the course, it can be difficult to restore them to their original shine. You should keep your clubs clean on the course and off of the course, cleaning them after every round. Shining golf clubs will not only look better but will allow the ball to come off of the club more cleanly and with more accuracy.

    Items you will need

    • Cleaning detergent
    • Bucket
    • Bristled club brush
    • Club cleaning solution

    Step 1

    Wipe your clubs off with a towel while on the course. Do this after every swing where you take up any dirt or grass to remove any loose debris.

    Step 2

    Use bristled club cleaning tools on the course to remove dirt from the face of your irons during the round.

    Step 3

    Use tees to remove fine impediments between grooves off of the course.

    Step 4

    Fill a bucket with cleaning detergent and use a towel to wipe your club with the soapy water.

    Step 5

    Scrub your soapy club with a bristled brush to remove any remaining dirt.

    Step 6

    Dip your club back into the soapy water and rinse with clean water.

    Step 7

    Dry your club with a dry towel.

    Step 8

    Scrub with a club cleaning product such as Golf Shine and wipe clean when finished to add extra shine. This can also be done with a window cleaning product or steel shining product.

    Step 9

    Place your clubs back in your bag to keep clean.
