PGA of America officially announces move from Palm Beach Gardens to Texas

The golf courses are expected to open in summer 2022. The PGA of America, for four decades based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, initially plans to employ at least 100 people at its new headquarters.

Two new golf courses designed by Gil Hanse and Beau Welling will form part of a $520 million development in Frisco, Texas, that will become the new home of the PGA of America.

Said PGA of America Chief Membership Officer John Easterbrook in a statement: "With PGA Frisco, the PGA of America begins an exciting new chapter in our 102-year history".

The signing of the memorandum follows the PGA of America's announced intent to relocate its headquarters to Frisco, Texas, a hotbed of sport entertainment activity and the location of UNT's Frisco campus, including its sport entertainment management program.

The upscale development, which will be open to the public as well as golfers, will be at Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive, roughly a third of a mile south of USA 380.

Visitors play on the field as a message welcoming the PGA of America to Frisco, Texas is seen at the Ford Center at the Dallas Cowboys headquarters at The Star in Frisco on Tuesday, December 4, 2018. The PGA of America said it will invest $30 million to construct its 100,000-square-foot global headquarters and education facility.

His production has decreased each season, and the Panthers a year ago traded him to the Bills. The Chiefs are signing Kelvin Benjamin to a one-year deal.

The project is a partnership between the PGA of America, developer Omni Stillwater Woods, the City of Frisco, its Economic and Community Development Corporations and the Frisco Independent School District.

The golf courses, clubhouse, practice areas, and associated public facilities will be owned by the city, and more than 300 Frisco ISD high school golfers will practice at the facility on a weekly basis.

The US PGA will also head to Texas, which will host it twice - in 2027 and 2034 - at the newly built courses in Frisco. The hotel, convention center, and other facilities are expected to open within six months after.

The 2027 PGA Championship will be the first time North Texas has held a men's major event since the 1963 PGA Championship that Jack Nicklaus won at Dallas Athletic Club.

A key component of the event is the PGA WORKS Career Expo, where student-athletes are exposed to internships and employment opportunities, as well as networking and career development sessions supported and attended by leading golf companies.
