Average Cost To Regrip Golf Clubs: With Real Examples

If you’re thinking about changing the grips on your golf clubs, you can either do them yourself or take them to your local golf shop. Both have their pros and cons, and in this post, I’m going to be talking about how much it costs to regrip your golf clubs.

The average cost to regrip your golf clubs will be between $35-$190. The price you pay will depend on what grips you choose and whether or not you regrip them yourself. Expect to pay $35 if you do everything yourself and get the cheapest grips. Expect $190 if you want expensive grips and bring them to your local golf shop.

The prices I looked at were based on regripping 13 clubs (driver to wedges). Obviously, if you don’t do your entire set it’ll be cheaper and if you want expensive grips then it’ll be more. I looked at grip prices online and used the average price and then looked to see how much golf shops would charge. I listed some examples below to give you a better idea.

How Much Does It Cost To Regrip Golf Clubs?

If you’re going to regrip your clubs then you’ll need to buy the grips and then you’ll either need a regripping kit (tape, glue, etc) or to take them to the golf store. I prefer getting someone else to do it because it’s fairly cheap but the choice is up to you.

When you’re buying golf grips, the cost will be anywhere from $2.50-$15 per grip. There are a number of no-name brands that are closer to the $2.50 number and some of them are fairly decent. If you want Golf Pride or Winn grips then you’ll pay $10-15. Here are some examples from Amazon:

  • Champkey Traction-X: $39.99 (13 grips with the regripping kit)
  • Golf Pride MCC Plus 4: $10.49 per grip
  • Karma Velour: $18.10 (13 grips)
  • SuperStroke Cross Comfort: $5.99 per grip
  • Lamkin Crossline 360: $5.99 per grip

If you’re going to be regripping your clubs yourself then you’ll need to buy a kit. The kit will come with tape, glue, and a few other things. These can range between $12-25. You’ll then have to watch a video or two on how to do it.

If you want someone to do it for you then you can take your clubs and grips to your local golf shop. Prices will vary a bit but normally this can be done for under $5 per grip. Here are some examples:

  • Golf Town: $5 per grip
  • Global Golf: $4 per grip
  • Golf Galaxy: $3 per grip

Now that we know the general price of putting new grips on your golf clubs, let’s do a couple of examples. You’ll then know the way you’d like to proceed.

Let’s say you wanted to get some of the nicer Golf Pride grips and you were going to do things yourself. Here’s how everything would break down:

  • 13 Golf Pride MCC Plus4 = $136
  • Golf Grip Kit = $14
  • Total Cost = $150

Now if you decide to buy the same grips but you wanted someone else to do them for you:

  • 13 Golf Pride MCC Plus4 = $136
  • Installation Cost = $52
  • Total Cost = $188

That’s a little bit on the expensive side but you can get things done cheaper if you go with a less premium option. Some of them are actually quite good and I don’t think I’d spend $10 per grip myself. Here’s an example:

  • 13 Lamkin Crossline 360 = $78
  • Golf Grip Kit = $14
  • Total Cost = $92

Or if you were taking them to your local golf shop:

  • 13 Lamkin Crossline 360 = $78
  • Installation Cost = $52
  • Total Cost = $130

These are costs from the middle-of-the-range golf grips but they can be quite a bit cheaper if you go with a no-name brand. Again, you can find some really good options and I’ll list some of them below.

Why You Should Regrip Your Golf Clubs

The first and most obvious reason to regrip your clubs is to improve the amount of grip. Grips will get worn out over time and that can cause issues such as gripping the club too tight or having the club move in your hand

You’ll start to feel the club slipping and that’s never a good thing. If you need more grip but don’t want to spend the money on new grips, you can use this golf glove here.

The second reason you’d want to regrip your grips is to help with alignment. Some grips will have outlines for where you should hold the club and it’ll slowly wear over time. This is something pretty important for the beginner player. If you’ve been playing a long time it won’t matter too much but it can definitely help a lot of golfers.

The third reason is to improve your confidence. I don’t know if it’s the case for everyone, but for me, having the right grip was a big confidence booster. A lot of grips that come standard aren’t always the best and you’d probably benefit from having a grip that feels comfortable to you.

Some people will prefer softer grips while others prefer firmer grips. You can also get thicker grips, which will normally help the beginner or older player. It sounds dumb but I do think switching to midsize grips helped my game.

When To Regrip Your Golf Clubs

You’ll know it’s time to regrip your golf clubs when your old grips start feeling hard or slippery. This will tell you that they’ve been worn down and are in need of an upgrade.

If you play multiple times per week then you may have to replace them once a year. If you’re just an average weekend golfer then your grips could potentially last years.

When I was just getting started with golf I was just using the standard grips that came with my irons. They didn’t have any alignment aids on them and they were pretty firm. I probably played a few times per month for the first two years and the grips were perfectly fine.

They were an expensive set of irons so the grips were probably high quality but some might wear out quicker. I ended up replacing them because I tried a buddy of mines irons and really liked his grips. I switched to a grip that was slightly thicker and a bit softer and things were so much better.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that you should absolutely replace your grips if the grip is wearing off because it’ll be a lot more comfortable to play with. You can also use these gloves for added grip. If you’re a beginner player you should try switching to a slightly thicker and softer grip.

How To Regrip Your Clubs

The quickest and easiest thing to do would be to take your clubs to your local golf shop and get them to do it. It’s about 4 bucks per club so it’s really not that bad. Some people like doing things themselves so here’s a quick video that will show you how to regrip your clubs yourself:

Basically, you’ll need to have your new grips, double-sided tape, and some sort of solvent. All you have to do is cut off your old grip and tape, put on the new tape, apply some of the solvents, toss on the new grips, and make sure everything is aligned. I’d recommend you practice with an old club before you try the real thing.

What Are The Best Golf Grips

There are a number of different golf grips out there and I’d highly recommend you go out and try them. They all feel different and it’s super important you use something comfortable. Some grips are softer than others and some grips are larger than others.

My two favorite grip companies are Winn and Golf Pride. They are normally on the expensive side compared to others but you can get cheaper options from Karma Grips and a few other companies. I don’t normally buy the cheap grips and I probably wouldn’t buy the expensive options either. Here are my favorite golf grips:

  • Golf Pride MCC Plus4
  • Winn Dri-Tac
  • Golf Pride Tour Wrap

Golf Pride MCC Plus4 is the most expensive of the three grips. They come in a number of colors and sizes and I like them because they have a good amount of grip and help with alignment. They have arrows on them which will tell you where the center of the grip is (as long as the grips are installed straight).

Winn Dri-Tac is a bit cheaper and will cost somewhere around $7 per grip. I think these are the grippiest grips and are good if you play in wet/damp weather. They also have some alignment help on them and have a number of colors and sizes.

Golf Pride Tour Wrap is the cheapest grip of the three and is probably my favorite when it comes to comfort. I really like wrap style grips but the one downside is that they don’t come with much alignment help. Other than that, they come in a range of sizes and colors.
