2018 September: Bella and Pebbles

Bella is a six-year-old purebred blue nose American pit bull terrier. She motivates the crew at Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, S.C., in the mornings, and the crew in turn spoils her with their breakfast food, which usually includes a small piece of a honey bun. Bella also delights in chasing superintendent Nathan Stevely’s cart down the fairway and running in circles through the bunkers. Pebbles is a one-year-old Maltipoo who follows her big sister around and loves to trail fox squirrels up trees as far as she can go. Bella and Pebbles’ relationship is much like that of Timon and Pumbaa from The Lion King.

Nathan has been at Chechessee Creek Club for six years and is an 11-year member of GCSAA. He is the treasurer of the Low Country Golf Course Superintendents Association and has served on its board for five years.
