Tips For Cleaning Your Golf Clubs Before You Take Them To A Pawn Shop

by Eli Schmidt

One thing that many golfers have in common is that they're constantly upgrading their gear. If you find that you use a set of clubs for a few years and then invest in a better one, you might be looking for a way to get some money for your old set. Instead of trying to sell it online, consider your local pawn shop. These vendors will give you fair value for your clubs, putting some money in your pocket that you can put toward your next set. To help get the most money possible, you want to ensure that your clubs are clean. Here are some tips to help you get them that way.

Remove Caked-On Mud

The grooves in the faces of your irons, wedges, and even your fairway woods can often get filled with dirt. If you don't wipe down your clubs after each shot, this dirt will harden between rounds of play, and you'll be left with grimy clubfaces. You can fix this issue in one of two ways, and each will transform the look of the clubs to help you get more value for them from your pawn shop. You can soak the club heads in warm water for several minutes to loosen the dirt, and then scrub them vigorously with a scrub brush. Or, use a specialized club-cleaning tool that has a sharp tip for scraping the dried dirt away.

Polish The Shafts

Dirt, sweat, dust, and other grime can coat the shafts of your golf clubs and make them look undesirable. The process of cleaning the shafts and restoring their shine, however, is quick and easy. Fill a bucket with warm, soapy water, and dip a microfiber cloth in the mixture. Wipe the cloth up and down the shaft of each club to remove any debris, and then grab a dry microfiber cloth and rub the shaft to restore its shine.

Clean The Grips

The grips of your golf clubs can get sticky and dirty over time, too, potentially making your clubs look in worse condition than they are. Using a scrub brush will help you remove any dirt and grime from the grooves in the grips, while a soapy microfiber cloth will help you get rid of any stickiness left over from your sweaty hands. You can then dry the grips with a dry microfiber cloth to make them look their best. With these steps, you'll get top dollar for your clubs and be ready to invest in a new set — ideally from the pawn shop.
