As part of an innovative agreement, the PGA of America will be moving its headquarters to Frisco, Texas, from Palm Beach County, Florida. Voted the “2018 Best Place to Live in America” by Money Magazine, Frisco will be the anchor site of a 600-acre development of mixed-use, bearing over half a billion dollars in initial investment.

The announcement was made on Tuesday, December 4, following votes tallied from the Frisco City Council together with the Frisco Independent School District (FISD) Board of Trustees, and its Economic and Community Development Corporations. As part of the agreement to relocate, the PGA of America will employ at least 100 people and make Frisco the location for two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships, two PGA Championships, and possibly the Ryder Cup.

This creative public-private agreement could potentially bring over $2.5 billion in the next 20 years to Frisco. To meet the needs of the development, the PGA of America is partnering with Omni Stillwater Woods (a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts), the City of Frisco along with its Economic and Community Development Corporations, as well as the FISD. Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America, stated, “Our move to Frisco will be transcendent for the PGA of America. Everything great starts with a dream.  This is the beginning of a bold, new journey as we bring together world-class partners in a world-class location – to deliver innovative and differentiated experiences for our nearly 29,000 PGA Golf Professionals, golfers of all abilities and our staff.”

There will also be a clubhouse in addition to Class AA office space, not to mention an Omni resort featuring 500 rooms and a new conference center. The area will also be home to a retail village with technological advancements as well as parks and green space with several miles of trails for walking or biking.
