With a few holes constructed, Mike took over and restarted construction and opened nine holes in 1971. Mikeâ€™s brother Karney joined this journey for a successful business venture in 1974 where Tallwood started to develop into and 18 hole championship Country Club.

I have played this course many times over the past 30 years, still one of the best in the area. Greens superintendant keeps it is excellent shape year-around. Fairways and greens are always very good. large helpful pro & pro-shop. Food area just OK, no fancy food. Has beer & wine, no hard liquor. All of the staff is very friendly & helpful. Morning pace of play is pretty good, afternoons on the weekend can occasionally get a bit slow. I enjoy playing this course.
