James Calceta, PGA
Class A, PGA Head Professional for Skywest Golf Course of Hayward. I have been with the Hayward Area Recreation & Park District since 2006. Being with Hayward Golf has enabled me to work with the wonderful staff and meet people from all over the Great San Francisco Bay Area.
I began my career in the Golf industry in 2001 working for a private golf course in the outside service department, was promoted to the Outside Service Manager in 2002. I worked my way to becoming an Assistant Golf Professional learning the ways of staffing, merchandising, marketing, and most importantly customer service. As an Assistant Golf Professional working at a private golf course I learned the importance of being proactive. I took the position at Skywest Golf Course as the Head Golf Professional in 2006-present. I keep up to date by being very active with golf seminars, player and teacher development forums, playing in NCPGA golf tournaments, and knowing the latest golf equipment. My soul purpose as a PGA Golf Professional is to promote the game of golf. I plan to continue my service with this community to provide the best golf facilities that H.A.R.D. can offer.
