Cleveland Golf is an independently operated subsidiary of Japan-based SRI Sports. SRI Sports also owns the Srixon, Never Compromise and Cleveland Classics brands.

Cleveland's origins are unusual for a major golf brand: Many of its original products were replicas of golf clubs from the 1940s and 1950s. The company's namesake, Roger Cleveland, founded it in 1979.

Roger Cleveland's ownership of the company ended in 1990, when Cleveland Golf was acquired by Rossignol, the world's largest ski manufacturer.

(Roger Cleveland would later go on to design clubs, primarily wedges, for some of Cleveland Golf's rival companies.) In the early 1990s, Cleveland introduced VAS woods and irons and got them into Corey Pavin's bag. Pavin won the U.S. Open in 1995 playing these clubs, but consumers weren't impressed with their unorthodox appearance.

So Cleveland returned to more classic designs, and also began building brand awareness through tour player sponsorship.

Vijay Singh hooked up with Cleveland in the late 1990s, and through the late '90s and early 2000s Cleveland Golf emerged as a major brand. In 2003, Cleveland purchased the previously independent Never Compromise, adding a respected putter brand to its offerings.

In 2005, Quicksilver, a maker of surfing equipment, acquired Rossignol, and along with it Cleveland Golf. Another new corporate parent arrived in 2007, when Japanese company SRI Sports Limited - owner of the Srixon brand - acquired Cleveland (and along with Cleveland, the Never Compromise brand).

Cleveland is known as a leader in the wedge market, and its popular driver and iron lines include the Launcher and HiBore names. Cleveland Golf also makes putters under its own brand, as well as accessories including bags and apparel.
