How it all came to be…

A bit of history

Tallwood Country Club was started by Mike Ovian in 1970. Mike was given an opportunity to follow his dream by a failed group of investors who halted construction in 1968. With a few holes constructed, Mike took over and restarted construction and opened nine holes in 1971. With the help of friends and the dedication of a strong Men’s Club the dream became a reality. Mike’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. With a strong Men’s Club and Women’s Club, the course has been a success for many years.

In 1982 the Ovians hired John Nowobilski to become their PGA Golf Professional to help catapult the recognition the course deserved. With his valued teaching ability and award winning pro shop, John was one of Tallwood Country Clubs best assets that brings this golf course to the next level. The golf course is maintained and manicured by a top rated grounds crew led by golf course superintendent Larry Barrett. Larry and his staff keep Tallwood C.C. in tournament condition seven days a week.

After 25 years of operation the Ovian brothers decided to retire and give another golfing family a chance to continue the success of Tallwood. The McDermott family purchased Tallwood in 1995 with the same golfing values of the Ovian family – a public golf course with a private feel. With over 25 years of golf course experience the McDermotts of (Twin Hills Country Club of Coventry, CT) started the Championship makeover. With a golf course construction background, the McDermott’s updated the driving range, cart barn and a few tee boxes to make Tallwood Country Club tournament ready. Tallwood has hosted many top amateur and state tournaments that challenge any level of player. The McDermott’s continue to upgrade the course and maintain championship course conditions.

Tallwood has won many awards and accolades but its proudest award is the Walter Lowell Public Course Distinguished Service award. This award shows the dedication to the game and the success over the years.
