With summer’s sunny skies and warm weather, it’s no wonder your dad is looking forward to hitting the range or his favorite golf course. Which is why GolfERASERS will be a hit this Father’s Day! Thank you @GolfLakesLife for the feature. https://bit.ly/3eY6ZUU
In the mail for review this week is a pack of Golf Erasers. These are small pucks comprised of a nylon scouring pad on one side, and a Magic Eraser type sponge on the other.
They are designed to be hung on the tail end of the included rubber bag tag.
The Golf Eraser is an interesting product. Shaped like a puck, it has a scouring pad surface on one side, and a Mr. Clean-style magic eraser on the other. Magic Erasers are a melamine foam that functions as a fine sandpaper.
At the top of the Golf Eraser is a pass through slot, which allows it to be hung on a golf bag by a rubber bag tag.

Using the Golf Eraser is exactly what you would expect. The scouring pad side effectively cleans tough grass and dirt off club faces. I find that the white eraser side works well on balls and for lighter buildup on club faces.
It has to be wet, though. The white side just disintegrates unless it’s wet.
Golf Erasers also are useful wiping down shoes. In fact, shoe cleaning is the product’s origin. The creators wanted a product that could conveniently keep the soles of their shoes white.
For golfers, though the question is: do you need it? There already are any number of products — from brushes to towels — to keep your clubs clean. On that front, I’d suggest that most golfers already have a system that works for them.
I am more sold on the idea of the Golf Erasers as a shoe cleaning tool. I don’t clean the surfaces of my shoes often enough, and have found that these quite effectively dispense with grit and grime.
For my part, I’m going to keep Golf Erasers in my car for exactly this purpose. They make short work of cleaning shoes. It has been pretty easy to get into the habit of wiping down by shoes with a Golf Eraser for a couple of minutes after a round.
