How to clean your Golf Pride grips

As the only piece of equipment that your hands touch on every swing, it’s only natural that your golf grips will get dirty. 

In the same sense that the clubhead of a wedge or iron attracts dirt, grass, and sand throughout a round, your grips inevitably will have a build-up of sweat, dirt, and oils from the hands or sunscreen every time you hit the course or range.

And, most likely, many golfers clean the grooves and faces of their clubs during and after every round. It’s just as, if not more important, to treat your grips the same way.

Sweat, dirt, oil, hot & cold temperatures, and UV rays from the sun cause grips to wear and break down. Cleaning your grips often will slow that wear process and allow your grips to perform like new for longer!

Depending how often you play golf and what type of conditions in which you play most often, we recommend cleaning your grips thoroughly every 5-10 rounds. 

What you’ll need

  • Bucket or Sink
  • Soft scrub brush or clean sponge
  • Mild dish soap
  • Warm water
  • Towel
  1. Soap + Water

    Combine the dish soap and warm water in a bucket (or, if using a sink, start the warm water and add soap to your scrub brush).

  2. Scrub The Grip

    Wet the scrub brush or sponge with clean, soapy water and scrub the grip from top to bottom.

  3. Rinse Off

    Rinse the grip with warm, non-soapy water, using care to rinse the grip thoroughly to remove any soapy residue. Leftover soap can leave the rubber feeling slick.

  4. Dry The Grip

    Wipe the grip down with a clean, dry towel and set aside to continue air drying before returning to your bag.

  5. Clean Your Set

    Repeat Steps 2 through 4 with each grip in your set of clubs, including the putter grip.

A full bag of 14 clubs from driver to putter can be cleaned and dried in less than 15 minutes – and it just might save you a few strokes the next time you play.
