Our Story

Past, Present and Future

 

rp6Continental Golf began in 1972 as a 600 square foot repair shop in the heart of downtown Raleigh, NC. Two brothers, Julian and John Bunn, become well respected for their expert knowledge in golf club repair. Their particular specialty was refinishing wooden clubs and their ability to restore these clubs to look as if they were brand new. Servicing the local golf courses and country clubs, the Bunn brothers relied on personal references to expand their small business. Golf professionals in the area returned business to their shop for the high quality and quick return. As these professionals and their assistants moved to other courses, the references for the Bunn brothers repair work followed. Very soon, golf courses throughout the Carolinas and Virginia were sending their repair work to Raleigh, NC.

Over thirty years later, Continental Golf is still the expert repair center Julian and John Bunn began in that small shop. Continental Golf now operates out of a 32,000 square foot building with over 6000 square feet designated for golf club repair only. Now the largest golf club repair facility in the Eastern United States. The local base of golf professionals has grown to over 4,000 accounts. Continental Golf offers services to golf professionals and courses as well as to the individual golfer. Our services have grown to include every major type of golf club repair.
