Did you know it's National Dog Day? Did you even know there was a National Dog Day? (Don't lie.)
It might be a completely fabricated holiday, but like Earth Day, every day is National Dog Day. And while the golf course may not seem like a natural place for Fido to roam, dogs often travel alongside grounds crews at many courses around the country. We have a few in the Billy Casper Golf family.
Lovey is an 11-year-old border collie adopted by the grounds staff at Pine Ridge Golf Club in New York when she was six years old. She's in what's described as "semi-retirement" today but still occasionally helps in keeping the geese away as well as greeter for many guests with what superintendent Frank Marra describes as a "loyal following."
At Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club in Berlin, Md., Bucky roams the grounds. Assistant superintendent Jason Pettus is the owner and brings Bucky around Delmarva's only Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed course.
