I clean an iron before or after a shot with a wire brush if I notice it needs it. How many times depends on the course I'm playing and the conditions. No set routine.

 

I wipe off my driver face if I feel like I am not hitting the sweet spot (so I can see where the next impact is). On days when I'm really hitting it well it never occurs to me to wipe it off and on days when I'm hitting it like crap it might be after every shot.

 

If I'm at the clubhouse waiting for our game to start (and I'm in the mood) I sometimes take all of my clubs out of the bag and clean them in the lake that is just a few feet away from the clubhouse.

 

A few times a year just before golf trips I clean them all in the kitchen sink.

I never "clean" my clubs. I do wipe them down with my wet towel after every shot.

I too voted never, but with a caveat.  I wipe them off during the round as I play, I don't bring them in the house and clean them until I put them away for the season.

I voted never, but there wasn't really a choice that suited me well. I don't consider wiping them off with a towel cleaning them, although I do that nearly every shot. My clubs do however get a good thorough cleaning before every tournament I play in. I'm talking bring them inside and scrub them with soapy water and a brush. This almost led me to the 3+ rounds option, but it's typically way more than 3 rounds between cleaning, probably closer to 20.

I make sure the clubface and grooves are clean before each shot.  Whether I clean before or after each shot is up for debate.;-)

My irons get cleaned with a wet towel after every shot.Woods and hybrids after the round. Not having a wet towel during a round drives me crazy.

i'll look at the club when I pull it out of the bag, if its got crap in the grooves i'll wire brush it.

 

I guess I'm backwards, probably should just wipe off any grass/sand/dirt before putting them back in the bag.

 

probably because as a ~30 index i'm still jazzed about hitting a good shot, or irritated by the ganked shot.. clean the club now? aint got time for dat! :)

If the conditions are really wet, I usually wipe it down after a shot.

If the conditions are really dry, thus hard dirt is crammed in the grooves I'll hit and put it in the bag.  If I have to pull the club again I'll clean it with a wire brush before hitting or spit and wipe.

I cannot stand addressing a ball with a dirty club.  Somehow it distracts me

After hitting out of the sand I will clean it every time no matter what the course conditions.

I've been known to be waiting to hit on a dry day knowing my clubs have crud on them and I'll detour to a pond and dip and wipe a few clubs.

Yes, I know, I should carry a wet towel but I don't.

Woods just depend on use and condition.

Clubs are then clean after a round.

My home course has the club and ball washers on all their carts as well.   They are handy for a quick clean up as needed.   BUT....  once I get home, I clean the clubs off good in the sink in my garage after virtually every round.

The club I've joined (all you can play yearly membership) has someone waiting at 18th hole to clean clubs.   I just need to tip them.  Now, I never have to clean my wife's clubs again :-P.

Of course wiping down a club with a cloth post shot is cleaning it.  No one expects you to have a bucket of water with detergent and a brush on the back of your push cart.

I usually clean my iron (soft wire brush) before I hit shot - takes 2 seconds...
