But more than the name is being changed.
“Nothing about the golf course itself has changed,” said Katie Flaherty, the club’s general manager, who added, “We’re doing some rebranding, have a new logo, and we’re starting a remodel shortly.”
The first phase of golf club remodeling, set to begin in the next week or two, involves building a new outside deck at the existing restaurant at the course.
“A deck will be built out on the existing patio, extending out onto the grass that will really showcase the golf course,” said Flaherty, noting the new deck will be substantial at 2,700 square feet.
“It’s intended to house an outdoor kitchen and bar,” said Flaherty, adding once the new deck is complete, “We’ll then close down and remodel the existing golf building.”
Flaherty said it is hoped the entire project remodel will be done sometime in October.
Though plans are still being formulated, Flaherty said the idea is to give the existing golf-club facility a modernized facelift, making it more “loungey and inviting.”
There’s discussion of changing the configuration of the existing building’s kitchen, to remove it from sight and replace it with a line bar.
Sail Ho was the original name given to NTC’s golf course in the 1920s. The golf course has been in operation since 2006, with much of its staff from that time still intact, said Flaherty.
