The Chequessett Club has hired Harry Munns, Director of Waterfront and Sailing. I hope you will all welcome Harry as he works to restore a robust sailing program here at the Club of the next few years. 2022 will see the return of Sailing as a part of the summer camp.
Harry Munns began spending time on power and sailboats as a boy in his native Massachusetts. His love of the ocean brought him to southern California where he began sailing, teaching and doing captain work professionally. He was one of the founders of the American Sailing Association.
In his 20 year career at ASA, Harry trained hundreds of instructors around the world, wrote or contributed to many boating publications including his popular book, Cruising Fundamentals.
Harry was one of the original authors of the NASBLA National Education Standards that were developed at the behest of the coast guard and funded by a series of USCG grants.
He holds a USCG Master, 100 Gross Ton License as well as an American Sailing Association Offshore Passagemaking Instructor Evaluator rating. He continues to sail, lecture and write whenever time allows.
Additionally, Harry will be offering an afternoon sailing program for youth and teenagers. Dates and time for that program are being created and an announcement should be forthcoming. If you require assistance with any waterfront activities or the storage of watercraft, please contact Harry at email@example.com Note: there is a lot of work going on at the beach, so please don’t drive down to that area without approval from Harry. Thank you

Greetings from Don Brigham. I arrived Friday April 30, 2021 and on Saturday May 1st I began work as your new Golf Professional. I am delighted to join you at this very special club.
I am a native Texan and spent my formative years in Oklahoma. After graduation from Oklahoma Baptist University I moved to the Cape and married my college sweetheart Diana Johnson from South Yarmouth.
My golf career took me from my first professional job at 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. I was then selected as the Head Golf Professional at Rumson Country Club in Rumson, N.J. where I served for 22 years.
I have been “semi” retired since my days at Rumson and have sought seasonal positions which allow us 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.
Diana and I have three grown kids, Brooke, Corey, and Devin and are blessed with three amazing grandkids.
I’m looking forward to a great season. 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.
