Down below, our cleaning and polishing guide will tell you all you need to know to make your golf clubs look brand new.

You will need the following materials to polish your golf clubs:

Materials You Will Need:
-Your golf clubs
-Hot water
-Metal Polish/Car Wheel Polish
-Soft cloth

1. Brush your clubs with soap

First of all, it is important to clean your golf clubs well before applying metal polish.

Use hot water and a dish-washing soap, or a specialized soap for metal.

Apply the hot water and the soap to your golf club.

Next, use a brush or even a toothbrush to rub gently, but firmly, into the golf club, making sure to loosen up any dirt present on the golf club and in the club’s indents.

After you are done cleaning, rinse your golf clubs with water.

2. Dry your golf clubs

Secondly, use a towel or cloth to dry your golf clubs.

Remember, make sure you leave no water on the golf clubs before applying metal polish.

3. Apply polish to the clubs

Thirdly, apply your metal polish to the golf clubs with a clean cloth, and let the polish sit on the clubs for about 60 seconds.

Avoid applying metal polish to your golf club’s face. It might alter slightly how a golf ball reacts when you hit it with your club.

A good, fairly non-abrasive metal polish you can use on your clubs is called Flitz. It’s better to use a less abrasive metal polish than one that is more abrasive because you don’t want to damage your clubs.

4. Wipe the polish off your clubs

Finally, after 60 seconds elapse, wipe the metal polish off the golf clubs.

Furthermore, we recommend you apply the polish to one club at a time so that you can be vaguely accurate as to how long you leave the polish onto each golf club. If you apply the polish to all your clubs at once, you will likely end up leaving the metal polish for over 5minutes on some clubs, as you struggle to wipe them all off quickly.
