Meet Dovie: Pound Ridge's Resident Border Collie

Did you know that Border Collies are used to keep golf courses goose-free? Dovie has been with Pound Ridge Golf Club since we opened in 2008, and has played an integral role in keeping our beautiful course so pristine.

Border Collies are extremely intelligent and obedient canines that have a knack for herding. The breed hails from Scotland and England and has been traditionally known to herd livestock. Boasting exceptionally high energy and stamina, Border Collies are important for shepherds and farmers with their diligent work ethic.

Below, our Pound Ridge Golf Club superintendent Will Heintz discusses the history behind how Border Collies made their transition to the golf course, and how important Dovie is to Pound Ridge.
