July 2022: Ruby

Ruby is a 3-year-old yellow Labrador who devotes her days to Fiddlesticks Country Club in Fort Myers, Fla. Every morning, Ruby rides the course with her owner, Gabe Gallo, and is on the lookout for fox squirrels to chase and members who might have treats. Ruby is a smart girl who knows not to walk on greens or bunkers, instead running around them and meeting you on the other side. She loves to show off her tricks to staff, members and guests. No stranger to cameras, Ruby appears frequently in the club's video updates to membership. 

GCSAA Class A superintendent Gabe Gallo is the director of agronomy at Fiddlesticks Country Club and a 13-year member of GCSAA. He is a graduate of Lake City Community College in Lake City, Fla., where he earned a degree in golf course operations. When he's not working, Gabe enjoys the outdoors and boating with his wife, Kathleen, daughter, Kaylee, and of course Ruby, too.
