As golfers continue to buy new and updated golf clubs to replace their old ones, the concern on where to dispose of the old ones will come to mind. This is especially true if one only has a limited amount of storage space for golf equipment.
Some may try selling them, but this may be a hard thing to do, as every golfer always wants to use the latest clubs. So, instead of selling them, here are some do-it-yourself ideas on how to recycle your golf clubs.
TIP: To get the best glue to use for this purpose, simply ask your local hardware store.
Old golf clubs can be used to make tables by cutting off their heads, leaving only the shafts. To create the frame of the table, simply take four of the headless shafts (of equal length) and glue old golf balls on the ends of the shafts. Then, take another set of four shafts (also of equal length if you want to form a square frame), and glue each end to the golf balls, connecting the shafts to each other. After the frame has been completed, you can then simply glue a square piece of wood (or for better aesthetics, a chessboard) on top of the golf balls to create a table.
To create an end table, simply take two clubs of equal length (without cutting them) and arrange them so their club heads are firmly placed flat on the base, perpendicular to each other. Then simply glue a large plate on the other end of the clubs (where the grips are located) and let them dry to create the finished product.
The heads of the clubs can also be fashioned into makeshift bottle openers. Simply cut them off from the shafts, leaving just a small part of the shaft. Then take a small bottle opener and attach it to the other end where the shaft used to be, to make the finished product. For added design, you can cover the part where the bottle opener and the head meet with a small rubber sheet.
Several small golf clubs can also be used to add extra back support to an existing chair. Simply take these clubs and glue them to the existing back support of the chair to extend them further. Have them glued very close to each other so that they can support the weight of the person sitting. For added presentation, you could choose to get these clubs in equal length, or you could arrange them so that they’re presented in an ascending or descending manner.
Another popular method of recycling old clubs is to fashion them into makeshift hangers. Simply take two of the clubs’ heads (without the shaft) and glue them together in an angular position, or simply glue them together on an existing cloth hanger.
Most of the shafts of the clubs are strong and sturdy enough that they can be used as a walking cane. Simply cut off the heads of the clubs, and that’s it. For added comfort, you can bend one side of the shaft so that it forms a grip when using the cane.
To create a shoe rack from the clubs, simply glue both ends to a rectangular wooden frame in a parallel position, with a distance that’s enough to hold any shoe length. Six clubs can make a three-layered shoe rack, but if you want more layers, you can simply add two more to create four layers, and so on.
There are many other ways of recycling your old golf clubs, such as making license plate holders, curtain rods, lamps, and even a holder for your gadgets (like a smartphone or a remote control). The key here is using your imagination. With enough of old clubs, you can turn even your entire house into a golf-inspired environment full of old golf equipment used as ornaments.
