Tuesday morning saw Michael Da Costa spend most of it finishing one of the countless items on his agenda.

He was completing the new hardwood floors in the grill room at the SkyView Golf Club.

This new change remains one xof the several changes the club’s new head golf professional is seeking to implement for his first season at the club.

Golfers who normally tee it up in the mountainous rolling course this season should more or less expect a new, modern feel that the head golf professional is planning to promote on the course this year.

Already overhauled is the club’s pro shop. The grill room is also undergoing a complete face lift from floor to ceiling. In order to introduce golfers to the course, Da Costa is hoping to host varieties of new events on the course this season.

Speaking, he noted that the vision was to promote the course as a full public course.

“The vision that we both have is to get the course back to where it was, promoting that it’s a full public course, we offer memberships and get our outings back to where they were a few years ago,” he said.

The golf professional also noted that there was a need to change the entire pro shop.

“We need to put the numbers back in, market very well, and we’re going to be changing up the entire pro shop.”

The check-in point for the club has since been renovated and the same hardwood used in the grill room also used for the check-in point. There are also some updated clothing styles on the racks as well.

He has also brought in some whole new lines of merchandise including Greg Norman and Adidas. Puma, Rickie Fowler’s favorite brand is on its way as well.
