July 2023: Millie

Millie is a 1 1⁄2 year old black Labrador retriever. Millie has been a bonus employee for Illini Country Club in Springfield, IL since she was a 10-week-old puppy. Millie loves chasing the geese and squirrels and of course, riding in dad’s golf cart. Millie is known on the golf course for her friendly personality and lovable nature. She loves greeting all of the members, especially the ones who bring her treats! Being on the golf course has become Millie’s every day routine, but on her days off she likes to play fetch in the yard and take naps on the couch.
