January 2022: Shadow

Shadow is a 3-month-old Siberian husky who recently joined the maintenance team at Victory Ranch Golf Course in Kamas, Utah. This friendly, energetic pup loves chasing rabbits on her morning runs and getting into trouble with her best friend, Ukka, an 8-month-old Karakachan mountain dog. Shadow's favorite pastimes include picking up divot patties in fairways, disrupting crew members' morning jobs, and riding in the cart with her owner, Bob. She also enjoys afternoon naps on the cool shop floor. After work, Shadow heads home for dinner and an evening hike with her mom, Carley. 

Bob Narciso, a five-year GCSAA member, graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2019 with a bachelor's degree in sustainable plant and soil systems with a focus in turfgrass science. After three years as an assistant superintendent in Connecticut, he began his first season as an assistant at Victory Ranch GC. Since moving to Utah, Bob, Carley and Shadow enjoy exploring their new home through camping, hiking and road trips.
