If you play golf regularly, the faces of your once-brand new clubs--especially your irons--are likely to become worn and flat, losing the sharp grooves they had when you first picked them off the store shelves. This can result in a loss of accuracy and a more frustrating game. While some golf shops offer to sharpen these grooves for you, several brands of sharpening tools exist for do-it-yourselfers.

Groove Sharpener

Groove Sharpener is an online company that makes tools for refining the faces of golf clubs. As of 2010, the company boasts four different tools for sharpening golf club grooves. The tools are flat, steel sticks with sharp edges that protrude from each end. The difference in Groove Sharpener's four tools is in the quantity and size of the sharp edges on each tool. The company's tools come with rubber caps and an optional handle. As of 2010, a single tool cost £12.90.

Golf Groover

Golf Groover makes two different tools for sharpening club grooves. Both are made of steel and have rounded, cylindrical handles with sharp edges protruding from the ends. Golf Groover offers a tool with a single blade and a tool with a triple blade. Both tools come with a plastic carrying case and cost £22.0 (single blade) or £22.70 (triple blade) as of 2010. Like Groove Sharpener, the user runs the blade repeatedly over the face of the golf club in the direction of the existing grooves to sharpen.

Golf Club Medic

The Golf Club Medic, made by IZZO, is cheaper than the two options above, but reviewers, such as, assert that it won't last as long. This tool, which works similar to other golf club groove-sharpening tools, has a plastic casing and can be bought for £6.40 at most golf shops.
