One of very few female greenkeepers in Australia, Gerri talks about her background as an all round sports fan and her start as a mature aged student getting into the industry. From her humble beginnings growing up on the family farm in northern Victoria, all the way to working at one of the greatest golf courses in the world before taking charge as Superintendent at the redeveloped Sandy Links, Gerri's story is captivating. Hard working, grounded, humble and strong! Gerri is a fantastic leader of the greenkeeping industry and one that I think we can all look up to. You hit 'em clean and we'll keep 'em green!

    EP.38 The Board Room - Susan Pace (Tallwoods Country Club)

    50:45

    Welcome to 2022 and I kick off the New Year with a brand new segment called The Board Room. The idea behind this segment is to give you an insight into the people who are the decision makers at golf clubs and golf courses. I want you to also get an understanding of who they are and how that sets down a path for the future of the courses and clubs they are behind.  In this episode I chat with Susan Pace, General Manager and Owner of Tallwoods Country Club. We discuss what a baptism of fire it has been as the owner of a golf club especially one with a difficult history. You'll hear about how Susan and her family business got involved at Talllwoods. Susan also talks about the passion they have for working hard with their team of staff to turn the tide of past negativity into a shining light of enjoyment so everyone can experience the tranquil and beautiful location that is Tallwoods. I hope you enjoy this one and I look forward to hearing from you about it. You hit 'em clean and we'll keep 'em green!
