Re-shafting a golf club is the process of removing the old shaft and replacing it with a newer one.  Golfers may often have this process done if they want a new shaft or the previous one broke. Installing a new shaft can be a time-consuming process for many golfers, and this is one of the main reasons that most turn to a professional.

The cost of re-shafting a golf club will depend on the number of clubs, the type of materials, as well as the professional that is doing the job.

How much does reshafting golf clubs cost?

Depending on the quality of the shaft, the cost can be anywhere from $15 to as much as $150 per club.  If the shaft is a higher name brand shaft, it is going to be near the higher end, while a lesser known brand can be toward the lower end.  Materials will also play a role.  Steel shafts will be about 10 to 20+ percent cheaper than graphite.  Most re-shafting jobs, however, are going to be in the $15 to $45 price range per club.  For instance, if you were to have Titleist reshaft a club, it could average close to $110 per club, minus the shipping.

For example, the online golf store, GolfWorks.com, can perform a reshafting for $19.95.  Another local golf club shop located in Indiana charges $27 to $34 per club.

According to the message board thread on GolfWRX.com, forum members claimed they had paid anywhere from $11 to as much as $17 per club.  They had also mentioned that most professional golf pro shops will be more than happy to give a discount to those who send their clubs in bulk.

Dick’s Sporting Goods will perform a reshaft on a set of eight clubs for $80.

Reshafting golf clubs overview

During the procedure, the older shafts on your iron or driver will be removed by heating the shaft with a heat gun.  Once the older shaft is removed, the undercarriage will be cleaned up with a sandpaper until it is shiny in appearance.  The newer shaft will be cut to size and applied to the golf club using an epoxy.

What are the extra costs?

Clubhouses may charge an additional fee to re-grip the clubs.  This process can range anywhere from $5 to $15.  Grips are going to vary in pricing.  Higher end grips are going to cost more than a lower end grip.  This is going to be all up to the user on what type of grip you want.

Clubs that require a special adapter such as a bore-thru head can cost an extra $5 to $20.

If doing the job yourself, tools such as the grips, dremel tool epoxy glue, tape and solvent will be needed in order to complete the job.

If you want the manufacturer to reshaft the club, then you will more than likely have to pay shipping fees both ways.  This cost will all depend on the number of clubs you ship.

How can I save money?

Consider trying to do a re-shaft on your own.  GolfGalaxy.com has a resource that shows you exactly how to re-shaft a club.  This can be an inexpensive way to replace it without the use of a professional.

If hiring a professional, consider talking with at least three to five clubhouses.  Take a look at their previous work if you are going to have them work with a higher quality shaft.

If more than one club is broken, bring them all in at once as a bulk discount can apply.

Consider the overall price.  Many experts will recommend that it is better to purchase a newer club rather than get the original club replaced.

If you are already a member of a golf club, check with them first as they may offer discounts to members.
