Mr. January 2021: Zero

Zero is a 4-year-old Weimaraner who has been on the golf course at Lake Toxaway (N.C.) Country Club since his first day with his family as a puppy. Swimming and running are Zero’s favorite pastimes, especially when a ball or stick is involved. Zero is a personal golf ball retriever and an avid deer and squirrel chaser, but he isn’t a fan of the black bear cubs that frequent the maintenance shop. Zero is quite the early bird and acts as an alarm clock most mornings with his excitement to get to the golf course, and he entertains the crew with his tricks for treats. Outside of work, Zero loves baseball days with his human brother, Gage.

Tim Moore has been an assistant superintendent at Lake Toxaway Country Club for four years. A five-year member of GCSAA and the Carolinas GCSA, Tim enjoys playing ball with Zero and Gage, and having time in the afternoon for outdoor activities with the family makes the early morning starts worth it. Tim and his wife, Kayla, enjoy scenic waterfall hikes, which make for great adventures with Zero and the family.
