PGA Frisco Golf Courses Begin to Take Shape At Future Modern Home of American Golf

(October 18, 2019) – PGA Frisco lead architects Gil Hanse and Beau Welling today gave a preview of the championship golf courses that are being designed and built at the PGA of America’s future home in Frisco, Texas.  

“These courses will be the heartbeat of PGA Frisco,” said PGA President Suzy Whaley.  “This is where the best players in the world will compete in men’s and women’s major championships, and also where newcomers will learn this great game from the best coaches – PGA Professionals. Our vision is for PGA Frisco to become much more than our headquarters. It was incredibly important to us that the community benefit from PGA Frisco, including as a wonderful home course for Frisco Independent School District boys and girls’ high school teams and as a gathering place where all are welcome, no matter where they are on their personal golf journey.”  

In December 2018, the PGA of America announced plans to move its headquarters from Palm Beach County, Florida, to Frisco, Texas, where it will anchor a 660-acre mixed-use development with a public-private investment worth more than half a billion dollars. Two championship golf courses are being built at PGA Frisco, as well as a short course and practice areas. The new PGA of America headquarters will become home to national player development and coaching programs.  

This public-private partnership teams PGA of America with Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), the City of Frisco, as well as its Economic and Community Development Corporations, and the Frisco Independent School District.  The City of Frisco and its development corporations (each funded by a half-cent of Frisco's sales tax) and FISD are contributing no more than $35 million toward development of the public facilities.  The golf courses, club house, practice areas and associated public facilities will be owned by the city.  Read more here.
