How are you celebrating National Golf Month? In Hampton Roads, where one can take advantage of several beautiful courses all year round, we would argue that every month is Golf Month. Whether you play nine or eighteen holes, on a professional course or at a mini-golf near the beach, it’s great exercise.
If health concerns and/or lack of opportunity has left your clubs collecting cobwebs in the garage, however, you should consider storing your them in a safe place. Eden Way Storage Center offers different-sized self-storage units in Chesapeake for seasonal and sports equipment, furniture, and other precious items. If you’re taking a break from golf this summer – be it due to injury or military deployment – self-storage is a viable solution.
Here are a few things to know when you bring in your clubs, so they’re ready for your next game.
- Make sure everything is cleaned. Wipe down your clubs, wedges, putters, and balls and clear away the dirt and grass, especially from the divots and crevices. Use a hand vacuum to clean the inside of your bag as well. Dirty equipment left alone for any length of time may rust. If you store other things in your unit, you also don’t want to introduce bugs bacteria into the space.
- Rent a climate-controlled unit. At home, golf clubs can endure wear and tear. They may linger in car trunks or on outdoor patios. Over time, grips become smooth and bags tear. When not in use, a climate-controlled space provides a safe environment for your equipment. Make any repairs – new grip tape, etc. – before storage so your clubs look fresh on retrieval.
- Store your golf cart. There’s room for your golf cart in self-storage, too, if you have the proper-sized unit. If yours is gas-powered, be sure it has a full tank before you bring it in.
