Yes, the general consensus heard on this topic is that "Dogs" are the most effective deterrent for Geese. I wish our Superintendent would consider it.

True they are a nuisance. However, when geese hang around golf courses they rapidly become unfit for eating. (Don't ask me how I know, trust me on this) Their brethren that eat grain are good to eat.

The greenskeeper at a course I play has a dog that used to love chasing Geese. That was until the Geese would lure him into the water and try to drown him!
I would kill every Goose and deer (They love running into my vehicles) on the planet if I could and it somehow wouldn't effect the natural order of things.

I've been bit a few times. I waterfowl hunt every season, and when one is down and injured and you walk up to it, you gonna get bit! Geese do not often "bluff" they will come at you, and bite your pecker off. Then whatcha ya gonna do? Sorry I just got back from the course, and the aimin' oil was flowin' please don't ban me

On another course I play on frequently, they just don't care. As we were finishing one league round, my partner and I had just crested a hill in our cart (I was driving), and saw a gaggle of geese down at the bottom of the hill. I decided to floor it to make them scatter. Well, one of them decided to charge the cart, probably because they had some goslings in the mix. We got to within 15 feet and ended up swirving out of the way, because one of them had every intention of flying a kamikaze mission into us. So, the answer to the question on whether they are bluffing is, "no, they aren't".
