Roger Cleveland began producing and selling golf clubs in 1979. Cleveland Golf started off as a company known for producing exquisite replicas of classic golf clubs from the 1940's and 1950's. Today, the company is regarded as one of the forerunners in product innovation and is home to the #1 Wedge in Golf. In 1990, Rossignol, the world's largest ski manufacturer purchased Cleveland Golf. New high tech products called VAS woods and irons were introduced and sales continued to grow. Corey Pavin won the U.S. Open in 1995 with these products which provided greater awareness of the brand. However, consumers didn't take to the radical look of these products so by the end of 1996 finances were hampered.
Quiksilver, Inc., a leading surf brand, purchased the assets of Rossignol which included Cleveland Golf. Cleveland remained under their ownership until December of 2007 when Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd. purchased the golf brand.Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd. owns and operates several brands around the world which combine to make them the number one club brand and number two ball brand in Japan, as well as having a major presence in Europe and North America.
Cleveland Golf is proud to count among its professional tour staff members: Keegan Bradley, David Toms, Vijay Singh, Ben Crenshaw, and many others.
