Mr. December 2021: Cody

Cody is a 3-year-old border collie who came to Willow Creek Country Club in Sandy, Utah, in 2017, when he was 1½ years old. Cody is obedient and upbeat, and he loves being around the water. His dogged persistence keeps the golf course’s waterways clear of geese. His favorite summertime activity is attacking water, whether from the hose or the sprinklers. Cody loves his job and is always eager to please. The only thing he asks for in return is love and pets — lots and lots of pets. For Cody’s owner, Phill, riding the course with Cody every day is one of the things that makes his job the best.

Phill Cahoon has been the assistant superintendent at Willow Creek Country Club for seven and a half years and loves living in Utah. He graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in plant science with an emphasis in turf. When not at work, Phill loves spending time with his wife and four kids and discovering the natural beauty of Utah.
