Our names are Al Dickens and William Rainey and we are the co-founders of Johnston Gray Designs. Both of us are born and raised Charlotteans and grew up playing junior golf together.
Johnston Gray came about from a discussion in the midst of an intense chipping contest as we fervently searched our imaginations for a way to make some money to support our dreams of playing PGA Tour golf. After a few ideas came and passed, we focused on finding a niche in something we were both passionate about and that was the golf industry. William thought of custom ball markers and our minds took off at the idea.
Our goal with this company is to bring about a distinguished, customized product that will bring our customers both joy and pride as they compete in this game. We felt like there was not a ball mark company out there that was fully customizable and elegant, so we decided to change that.
We believe that we have been blessed with the talents and abilities to play this wonderful game of golf and so it is our hope that Johnston Gray can be a means to enable us to pursue and fulfill those dreams. It is our aim to shine a Light through both JG and in the golf world.
Thanks again to all of our past, present, and future customers. We hope you find JG to be a refreshing dose of class and originality.
