Mr. and Miss November 2021: Ace and Aspen

Ace is a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois, and his sister, Aspen, is a 4-year-old German shepherd. The duo spends maintenance Mondays romping around Old Chatham Golf Club, located in the heart of North Carolina. Their workdays include chasing off geese and playing in bunkers (which the maintenance staff doesn’t appreciate!). Aspen can typically be found swimming in one of the course’s two ponds or riding shotgun in the golf cart with her owner, Wesley. Ace is particularly fond of squirrel watching and hunting for lost golf balls. After a hard day’s work, both enjoy settling in for a well-deserved nap.

Wesley Deans, a graduate of North Carolina State University, is the senior assistant superintendent at Old Chatham Golf Club in Durham, N.C. Wesley was born and raised in North Carolina and has been a GCSAA member for five years. Outside of work, he enjoys hunting, fishing, playing golf, working out at the gym, hanging at the coast, and spending time with his wife.
