Chris Mowers, PGA ~ Director of Golf


Chris is originally from Plymouth, New Hampshire, where he grew up and at the age of 12 began working in the golf industry. He worked in golf course maintenance throughout high school and college, including the construction of the back 9 holes at Nippo Lake.

After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor's Degree in Recreation Management and Business Administration, Chris moved to southern California to attend the Golf Academy of San Diego. Upon graduation in 2002, he began his career at Morgan Run Resort and Club as an Assistant Golf Professional, during which time he completed a three level apprenticeship to earn his "Class A" PGA Membership in 2006.

Chris transferred back to the east coast in April 2007 to become the First Assistant Golf Professional at Ipswich Country Club and was promoted to Head Golf Professional the following year.

Since becoming Nippo Lake's Head Professional in 2009, Chris has executed hundreds of Member and Charity Golf Tournaments, including the WHEB Morning Buzz Outing and the especially popular Friday Night Scrambles. In addition, he has developed a reputation as a highly regarded Golf Instructor through his very successful Get Golf Ready programs, the PGA Junior League, and as the Coe Brown Northwood Academy High School Golf Coach. Coming into his 12th season at Nippo Lake and 9th season at Rochester CC, Chris is eager to grow the game through increased playing opportunities and teaching programs for players of all ages and abilities. Please let Chris know if there is anything he and/or his staff can do to improve your experience at Rochester C.C.
