Quiestion: Golf clubs

sprout_wi(z4 WI)June 4, 2010

I live near what I will call the Golden Triangle: I live 15 miles from 3 separate GW's. They are laid out in a triange - 15 miles (approx.) apart.

My question is: Does anyone have a creative use for old golf clubs? All three of the GW stores are over-loaded with used clubs.

Does your GW seem to have an over-abundance of anything?

Thanks,

Golf Clubs with wooden shafts may be very valuable. But you gave me an idea they might work for plate flower holders. Not the wooden ones though those I would display somehow.

The golden triangle, thats a riot, and lucky you (and them)!
I tried to find a post of fence flowers made with golf clubs that i remember from years ago. No luck. It must have fallen over the edge. I don't remember how they were made but I do remember liking them. Did anyone save a pic of these? Or is the poster still around?

I wss thinking of using them in place of rebar or pipe for garden stakes and glass plate flowers. Depends on the price.

I did have another idea. If the handle grips are nice (not wood) to cut them off long enough to use them as hose guides. I suppose either end would work for that.

I remember the fence flowers. Don't know if I saved a pic or not. The center of the flower was the club head, the stem was the shaft and the petals were colorful shoe horns.

Shoe horns! that is what i couldn't remember. They are similar to the golf club shape and fit well with it.

I've seen birdhouses where they use the head of the club as a perch

I saw paper towel holders made with some golf clubs, but don't remember where.

Great ideas, everyone - thanks!!

mjowest- the cat scratch idea is cute. Looking at those golf clubs reminded me of flamingo heads. If I could think of something to use for a beak, they could be painted pink, and would make cute plant stakes.
