Mr. September 2021: Bogey

Bogey is a 6-month-old German shorthaired pointer who loves having over 180 acres to run at Tavistock Country Club in Haddonfield, N.J. He has been on the job since he was 8 weeks old, and he can typically be found riding around in the golf cart with his owner, Jeff. Bogey’s favorite activities include greeting crew members every morning while also trying to steal some of their breakfast, helping dig holes for irrigation repairs, and chasing the leaves blown about by backpack blowers. As Bogey gets older, Jeff hopes he can be trained to help control geese on the golf course.

Jeff Breyer graduated from Delaware Valley University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in turfgrass management. He has been an assistant superintendent at Tavistock Country Club for four years and a GCSAA member for five. Jeff grew up one town over from Tavistock, in Barrington, and now lives on the golf course with his wife, Brenna. When not at work, he enjoys watching the Philadelphia Eagles, spending time outdoors with family and friends, and building furniture in his wood shop.
