As much as you need to keep your golf cart clean at all times by using your golf cart cover, so the need to keep your golf clubs free from dirt regularly. Believe it or not, unkempt golf clubs can totally affect your performance.

The truth is, golf clubs should be cleaned as often as they are used. Every time you go for a swing, there is always a probability that grass and dirt can get stuck on the grooves of the club face. This is a sure fire way to cost you strokes on the course. Another thing: Grips. Oil and all sorts of grime can develop on your grips. Obviously this can affect your swing as it minimizes the control you have over the clubs. This holds true whether or not you are fond of wearing gloves. Bear in mind that sometimes the difference can be very subtle that you don’t readily feel it. Our advice is this: Try cleaning it out and feel the difference on your next swing.
It’s good practice to bring a golf club brush when you are on the course so that you can immediately clean the club heads even if you are in the middle of a game. Save the more thorough cleaning when you get home, but for the time being, you should be good with the brush. If you plan on storing your golf clubs for a while, clean it first before keeping it in a safe place.
