Our New Staff Member-Bailey

Meet our newest staff member, Bailey.  She is a 7 yr. old Australian Shepherd.  Her owner is Mike Cooper from The PLAYERS Stadium.

Because of our problematic goose population, Mike brought Bailey in to help chase them away from the TPC Property.  Other than euthanization, the best way to get geese to leave one's property is to constantly harass them.  Many courses and parks throughout the US have gone to dogs to do the harassing.  Australian Shepherds have a natural herding instinct, which makes them great for chasing geese.

You'll see Bailey riding throughout the golf course with Mike.  Don't be alarmed, she is at work!
