Well I have a pretty big walkin closet and I just store them in there. I dont keep them in the garage because Im scared my mom or dad will run them over haha. And not in my car becuase it does get super hot in there.

I keep my clubs/bag in my house when I’m not using them.

I’ve heard that it’s a bad idea to store one’s clubs in the trunk of one’s car because it tends to compromise the efficacy of the epoxy, and I’ve heard that storing clubs in the trunk won’t do anything to loosen the bond. I’m ambivalent.

The main reason I don’t keep my clubs in the trunk is because there is that off-chance my car might be stolen… along with my clubs. I don’t have a custom fitted car and it’s both insured and replaceable.

I keep them in my office, this way I don't have to worry about the wife or kids knocking them over or piling stuff on top of them.  Plus I've heard mixed things about what extreme heat and cold does to the clubs so I figure why risk it.

I bring mine into my house if Im not going to the course that day.  Leaving your bag in your trunk isnt good for your clubs or your golfballs and leaving it in your garage isnt a good idea because mice might chew a hole in it.

I always bring mine into the house when I'm not using them. I have a hatchback and the clubs pretty much take up all trunk space. Plus I worry about someone seeing them and wanting to break in or something.

I bring mine into my room. My garage is sometimes left open and I don't want people to see them and steal them

Well, since i got some better sticks, i guess i'll be storing them inside when possible.  I always thought the trunk probably wasn't the best idea.  jostling around and the extreme heat.  having said that, i park under covered parking the vast majority of days.  so its not sitting there under the brutal heat.  I wanted to keep em handy so that if i wanted to goto the range or got an early day out, could do it without having to make a special trip home etc.

thanks for the input,

ard1

ps Fgiord, i sent u a pm

Another aspect is gas milage for your car.  Any kind of unneeded weight is going to make your car's engine have to work harder and reduce fuel milage.  It might only be a 2% difference, but with near $4 a gallon gas anything you can do to improve your milage isnt a bad thing.

Why is your "gas" so cheap?

Our petrol is $10.64 per gallon

How do you like them apples?

I have tried to save weight by removing the engine and gearbox, which has improved the weight but now it doesn't drive

In the Winter the weather is pretty pleasant here so I leave them in my garage.  In Summer I bring them in the house or leave them in my locker at the club.  I have also heard it isn't a good idea to leave clubs or balls in the car trunk in very hot weather so I don't.  Too expensive to take the chance.  But I have friends that do keep their equipment in the car trunk and I don't know of any failures caused by that practice.

Varies, when its not to hot out, like spring time i keep them in the car.. Not my shoes, those stay in the house, car trunks kill leather. In the summer will bring them inside.

In the summer they live in the house. In the winter, the garage or trunk. No one would steal my car...or my clubs either!

In the trunk, nowhere else in the apartment to keep them that wouldn't be a nightmare to get them out of.  Never had any problems with heat doing bad things to them.
