The PGA of America is moving its headquarters from Palm Beach County, Florida to Frisco, Texas. The new headquarters will anchor a 600-acre, mixed-use development with an initial investment worth more than half a billion dollars.
This new headquarters will employ 100+ people and host at least two PGA Championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships and potentially a Ryder Cup. A city-commissioned tourism feasibility study estimates an economic impact of $2.5 billion over the next two decades.
The Frisco, TX headquarters will also work with Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital; the City of Frisco, as well as its Economic and Community Development Corporations; and the Frisco Independent School District.
Two championship golf courses, a short course, and practice areas totaling 45 holes; a clubhouse; Class AA office space; a 500-room Omni resort and 127,000-square-foot conference center; a technologically advanced retail village; parks and open space plus several miles of trails, will complement this unique, signature development.
The PGA’s Northern Texas Section will also move to PGA Frisco, where state of the art connectivity will provide opportunities to pilot promising new growth-of-the-game programming for all 41 Sections of the PGA of America.
