Susan Pace

Hi, my name is Susan Pace and since 2019 I have been the Managing Director of Tallwoods Country Club.


During my working career I have mostly been in the sales environment before moving into management 8 years ago.


Our business purchasing Tallwoods was an exciting new challenge and personally I have learnt so much of the world of Golf and Course Maintenance.


One of the best parts of my job is to spend time with our members and visitors, hearing of their game and watching them enjoy our course, accommodation and facilities. When our guests leave there is nothing better than hearing the words "We had a great time and we will definitely be back".


Our journey so far has been very rewarding with our team sharing the same vision and passion to achieve the goal of Tallwoods being a destination golfers want to visit.

Steve Pace

My name is Steven Pace, I am the Project Manager of Tallwoods Country Club. 
After my many years of being an Operations Manager in my own Family business it was a challenge I couldn’t pass taking on the role at Tallwoods. 

Since I started, I have been deeply involved in the refurbishment of the course and working alongside the groundsman to restore such an amazing course. 

Adding to this I also managed the many building projects on the property and many other jobs which  make every day unique.

The comradery by our Staff and Volunteers amazes me and I am very thankful for everyone’s efforts in assisting us on the journey.

Pyper Hollis

Hi, my name is Pyper, I am 19 years old and I’m a 2nd Year Trainee PGA Golf Professional at Tallwoods Country Club, NSW. I started working at Tallwoods in late 2019. I was fresh out of High School after I completed Year 12 and HSC at St Clare’s High School, Taree, when I first started my traineeship and working with the extraordinary team at Tallwoods.                                              


I am soon to finish my 3-year traineeship in December 2022, to become a fully qualified Golf Professional, with the hope of travelling Australia and the world playing PGA Supported Events. 


I have been playing Golf for most of my life starting at the age of 4, having an advantage of starting at an early age. I won many championships, junior events, various other golf tournaments and events all over Australia and the world, travelling with my mum and dad, making them proud.                                                                                                                   

In my own time, I love going out with friends and family. Enjoying the great outdoors and travelling to new places on the beautiful Mid North Coast.
