In August, lovers of the links celebrate National Golf Month. Here in Hampton Roads, where one can find several beautiful courses for year-round play, we would argue that every month is Golf Month for the avid golfer. This sport, in particular, is apt to accommodate the needs of outdoor enthusiasts during this time. It’s a socially distant activity and good exercise.
If health concerns and/or lack of opportunity have left your clubs leaning against a doorframe, however, you should consider storing your them in a safe place. Tidewater Drive Storage Center, with its recently expanded facilities, offers different-sized self-storage units in Norfolk for seasonal and sports equipment, furniture, and other personal 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. Go over your clubs, wedges, putters, and balls and clear away the dirt and grass. 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 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 yours is gas-powered, be sure it has a full tank before you bring it in.
