February 2022: Rosie, Katt and Zuko
Rosie is a 4-year-old Rottweiler-Labrador mix who loves coming to work every day with her sister, Katt, a 4-year-old border collie and certified goose dog, to see their co-worker, Zuko, a 1-year-old Australian cattle dog. The dogs' different personalities make them the perfect trio at Hobbit's Glen Golf Club of Columbia Association in Columbia, Md. All three love riding in the carts, and Katt's second favorite activity is playing catch, while Rosie enjoys exploring (with or without her owner's permission) and Zuko prefers play-fighting with Rosie or jumping on piles of sand or sod. When not out and about on the course, the three like to visit Christina, the golf course administrative assistant and photographer.
Patrick Mather- Rosie and Katt's owner- attended Ohio State University and has been with Columbia Association for eight years. The 10- year GCSAA member has been in his current role as director of agronomy for two years. When not on the job, Patrick enjoys playing darts with his wife, Kendra, and taking Rosie and Katt to the local dog beach. Head superintendent and Zuko's owner, Tyler MacKenzie, has worked at Columbia Association for over a year and is a 2011 graduate of Rutgers University's two-year certificate program. Tyler enjoys spending time outside with his wife, Brigette, and their son, Rowan.
