How to Repair Paint Chips on Golf Clubs

Updated February 21, 2017

Avid golfers--or angry golfers who tend to take their shanked shots out on their clubs--may find some of the paint chips off of their clubs. Because clubs can be very expensive, most people don't run out to purchase a new club or new set because of the chips. You can, however, cover up the paint chips. Golf paint has been created to repair paint chips in just a few minutes. Golf paint can be purchased online or through your local golf store.

Clean the club with a damp cloth where it has been chipped or scratched. The paint will not stick properly if the club is dirty.

Shake the bottle of golf paint thoroughly to ensure the paint is properly mixed.

Apply a thin coat of the golf paint using the brush attached to the lid of the paint. Apply the thin coat in one direction along the chip.

Allow the golf club 24 hours to completely dry.

Add a second coat if the chip is deep. If a second coat is not needed, skip to Step 6.

Buff the club with a clean, lint-free cloth.

Apply a dime-size amount of car wax paste to the lint-free cloth. Wax the club with the cloth to make it shine.
