a bachelor who's trying with all his might not to have a straight-up
"bachelor pad." Still, I'm a dude, and I like things like golf and
football, so I'd like those interests to factor into my home--but in a
non-cheesy way. Turns out, that's no easy task. After some deep digging,
I present to you five of my favorite ideas for getting your pad to
reflect your love of the putt without making you look like a dumb butt.
1) Golf Club Towel Rack:The guy pictured below sells for $148 at an online shop in New Zealand,
which also offers to custom make your towel rail using a sentimental
club. (They re-purpose tennis rackets and paddles, too.) But this would
be an easy DIY, right?
2) Golf Club Belt and Tie Rack: Similarly, here's a tie and belt rack--a "gentleman's valet"--that's been created out of two old clubs. See instructions on how to make one here.
3) Golf Club Sculptural Art: Oh,
man, this sunburst-like display above a staircase takes the cake for a
classy, cool, and artsy way to tell visitors that your favorite way to
spend the weekend is on a golf course.
And here's another example of golf club art gone right:
4) Fun with Tees: There are innumerable ways to re-use old golf tees. Here's a colorful one...
... and I'm thinking a centerpiece incorporating these teal tees would rock.
5) Go Shadow Boxing: If
all else fails, it is always cool and simple to display some favorite
old clubs in a wooden shadow box lined with green felt. (Photo source.)

"TJ is a true professional. My wife and I were looking for a home last summer, TJ worked very hard tracking down the sellers agents and even negotiated the price down within our budget. We actually had an offer in place when we decided to pull the offer (we got our heads back) at the last minute. TJ was unfazed (I would have been more than a little peeved if a customer was that close to purchase and then backed out) and took it all in stride. You can tell a lot about someone when things are going their way. You can tell even more about them when things don't work out.
I would highly recommend (and have recommend) TJ to anyone selling a home in the Middle Tennessee area. Zach D."
