How to Make Golf Club Head Covers

By Marc Jenkins

Most golfers who truly take care of their equipment are sure to have a nice set of golf club head covers adorning their tools inside of their bags. Golf club head covers are simply pieces of fabric which act as sleeves which cover the heads of clubs and protect them from being scratched by the elements or one another while inside of the bag. They also provide golfers with their own sense of style and personalization on the course where they can stand apart from everyone else in their own way.


Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Get a thick fabric with a tight weave in it so it can provide optimal protection from any of the elements which you may endure on the golf course. Any wool material (blanket, sweater or socks) would provide a great base fabric for your golf club head cover.
Step 2
Take the fabric which you have selected then form and shape it in the likeness of the club head which it will cover, be sure to give enough room for any alterations that may need to be done later. If you have a round club head then you should make that cover for it round, if it is a squared version then tailor your cover accordingly.
Step 3
Now begin to stitch the potential club head cover into the proper shape and be sure to stitch any openings besides the bottom of the potential cover closed. Keep in mind that you need to be accurate with the shape (either round or square) so that way you have the proper shaped and fitted cover for your club head.
Step 4
Now you are ready to tighten the open end of the cover around the shaft with just enough room to slip the club head in and out. Be sure to overlap the cover with several layers of extra material for durability, but not too much because the weight will compromise the flexibility of the cover. Now you are ready to give it some of your own personality with decals.
Step 5
Once you have made any final alterations and added any decals, it is time to test out the cover by repeatedly slipping the club head in and out so you can see if it has a chance to stand the test of time. If it can be placed in and removed consistently without any problems then your club head cover is ready to hit the course right along with you.

Tips & Warnings

Find a material that isn't too worn, the newer the material the more durable and longer lasting it will prove to be.
Please don't place your decals in areas where they will either compromise the club head's ability to slip in and out effortlessly and so they won't easily fall off.
