August is National Golf Month, though we imagine for the more enthusiastic of players in our area, this is every month. Given we’ve had sunny weather in Hampton Roads for much of the summer, it’s doubtful any golf clubs are gathering dust in closets, garages or storage units. However…
There may come a time when you need to think about storing your clubs for a while. If you’re military and are about to be deployed, if work in general keeps you busy, or it’s time to get ready for a new school year, you need a safe place for your favorite sports equipment. At Eden Way Storage Center, we’ve assisted many tenants who rent Chesapeake self-storage units for their sports and seasonal property. When it’s time to put away the clubs for an indefinite time, keep these to-dos in mind so they’re ready for the next round.
- Clean everything prior to storage. This goes for clubs, wedges, putters, balls…anything that’s gathered dirt and grass from your last trip to the course. You don’t to carry anything into your storage unit, like bugs or bacteria, that shouldn’t be there.
- Inspect equipment for damage. How do your grips look? Does your bag have a tear? Check everything and make any needed repairs before storage.
- Consider climate-controlled storage. Leaving clubs in a garage could cause damage. Exposure to extreme weather can have a detrimental effect on club grips. While it may make sense to leave your clubs in the trunk of your car, that’s not a good place for long-term storage. You risk damage as they move around while you drive, and there’s the potential for theft. A climate-controlled space is best to preserve your clubs.
