June 2022: Nevada
Nevada is a 1-year-old red merle border collie who lends a paw at Desert Canyon Golf Course in Mountain Home, Idaho. Nevada came to Desert Canyon from a cattle ranch where he was bred to work cattle, and he now gets to herd the occasional golfer, though his favorite duties include chasing rock chucks and whistle pigs off the course. When not at work, Nevada delights in time with his family and chasing his favorite frisbee.
Jacob Olsen is a GCSAA Class A superintendent and an 11-year member of the association. He has been the superintendent at Desert Canyon Golf Course since 2014. When not on the job, Jacob loves spending time outdoors with his wife, Katie, and their four kids.
