Bandon Dunes’ employee spotlight series has an interspecies twist this week.

Billy, a loveable black-and-white spotted pup, assists the Agronomy Department at the Oregon golf course. The canine’s job description at the Tom Doak-designed Pacific Dunes course includes taking responsibility for any avian intrusions (read: pesky Canadian geese), finding warm nap spots on the grounds and hiding in the bunkers.

Billy’s resume also boasts a stellar skill section—in addition to his fetching prowess, he’s been known to balance biscuits on his nose. Although he’s more of an overseer than a hands-on employee, it seems like Billy performs his main function on the golf course with flying colors: improving staff morale.
