Don is a native Texan and spent his formative years in Oklahoma. After graduation from Oklahoma Baptist University, he moved to the Cape and married his college sweetheart Diana Johnson from South Yarmouth.

Don’s golf career took him from the Bass River Golf Club in South Yarmouth to The Quechee Club in Vermont, and after a one-year stint on the PGA Tour, to The Country Club of Florida in Boynton Beach. He was then selected as the Head Golf Professional at Rumson Country Club in Rumson, N.J. where he served for 22 years.

Don has been “semi-retired” since his days at Rumson and has sought seasonal positions which allow him to winter in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. These include stints on the professional staff at the Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey, The Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia, and most recently at The Golf Club of New England in New Hampshire. I’m here to help you improve your golf, to help you enjoy your time at the club and to do my best to keep you coming back.
