Meet The Team
Lots of ideas and willing to try them out until something works, whilst my sporting teams Colorado State Rams, Canberra Raiders and Colorado Rockies are still trying to find something that works. I have been in the industry since graduating university at Colorado State in 2001, briefly tried to play professionally on mini tours (and would have made it if I had a better caddy but I married her instead).
Born and bred in northern country NSW, Toby has worked at the Tavern since early 2023. He spent the prior 17 years as a Licensee with a national pub group, working up and down the east coast before settling in the Illawarra. Passionate about authentic hospitality experiences, he was lured to the Links Tavern by a new challenge, great views and the genuine people that come through the doors every day. Toby loves soccer, snowboarding and beers he’s never tried before.
Tayla used to live off the 10th tee making the Tavern the ideal workplace for an easy commute! Originally training as a chef, she has now worked at the Tavern for a few years and prefers the people interactions a role in the bar provides. She loves the community feel of the tavern. On her days off Tayla enjoys spending time down the coast camping by the ocean, heading to the snow to ski, or a rainy day at home with a good book.
Never without a cheeky smile, Scotty has worked at the tavern for almost 2 years after a long time as a hospitality stalwart in the area. He keeps the beer flowing and stock and supplies in good order and is always up for a chat. You might even find him on the course on his day off! He also loves the Canberra Raiders (even celebrating the occasional win) and spending time with his daughter.
Tommy is the newest member of the team. You’ll probably hear his laugh before you see him coming! With 9 years experience in the local industry he was attracted to the fantastic morning views and a step up to a new role in management at the Tavern in early 2023. Tommy keeps fit with a bit of oztag and supports the Bulldogs in the NRL.
