Vote For Cesar!

Head on over to the Lebanon booth [number 6069] at the Golf Industry Show next week and vote for Cesar as part of the Dog Days of Golf Calendar contest. If he wins, we win: That’s $3,000 for the PAGCS. Rumor has it, you might even get to pet a live pup and meet a war veteran. Now that’s a win-win.


Cesar is a 5-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog who spends his days at Biderman Golf Club in Wilmington, Delaware. Cesar is enjoying his first year in the turf industry with his owner, intern Dave Ward. Cesar feels right at home especially during the fall and winter seasons! His long coat is not suited for the hot summer days in the Mid-Atlantic. Instead he waits for the crew on the cool cement floors, greeting them with a smile after their hard work and exhausting days. Long before Dave joined the Bidermann team, Cesar loved to chase geese, deer, squirrels, and a variety of waterfowl. Now, Cesar gets to enjoy his passion every day on the golf course.

David Ward is a first year member of the GCSAA and an intern of the Bidermann Golf Club. Under the tutelage of Superintendent Jon Urbanski, Dave has grown in the discipline and knowledge of the turf industry. Dave will be returning in the Fall of 2017 to Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management Program for his final semester and is looking forward to his future career in the industry.

As part of the Lebaonon/GCSAA sponsored event, the winning dog earns $3,000 for the local chapter [let’s make it the PAGCS!], $500 cash prize for the dog and owner, and $2,000 goes to K9 for Warriors.
