The sprawling future site of the PGA of America headquarters spanning 660 acres in Frisco is starting to show signs of life as developers hurtle toward the campus’ 2022 opening. “We have a vision — vision of championship golf — of bringing majors to North Texas for the first time since the 1963 PGA Championship, which was held at Dallas Athletic Club,” PGA of America President Suzy Whaley told Frisco officials and members of the media gathered on the site of the new campus Friday.

The PGA of America has begun construction on its new headquarters in Frisco . The 106,622-square-foot office building, designed by architect Page Southerland Page, will sit on more than 6 acres that are part of the 660-acre PGA Frisco campus, which also includes an Omni hotel and resort and two golf courses. Construction on the PGA building was delayed because of the pandemic but is now underway. Adolfson & Peterson Construction is the general contractor. Cushman & Wakefield is a development adviser on the project. The headquarters is set to open in early 2022 just south of U. S

FRISCO, Texas — Golf architect Beau Welling certainly has an impressive resume — creating Bluejack National outside Houston and guiding a massive rehaul at Quinta do Lago North Course in Portugal are among a growing list of notable works — but when he was one of five to be considered for the two courses at the PGA of America’s new Frisco headquarters, the Brown University product was ready and willing to check any ego at the clubhouse.

“This is a huge, huge deal,” Welling said Tuesday at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Omni PGA Frisco Resort. “When they called me — and they originally set it up like they were going to hire one architect to do everything — and they called me after and said, ‘hey, we really want to get you involved, but we don’t think we can let you do the whole thing. Would you be willing to do a part of it?’

“I was like, man, I’ll design the parking lot.”

And while the parking lot will likely be magnificent, the PGA of America instead tasked Welling with one of the two championship courses on the property north of Dallas — Gil Hanse designed the other — on a complex that’s expected to house 26 championships in the next dozen years, including two PGA Championships.

Like many others who spoke Tuesday, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Welling insisted the Frisco project is a gamechanger.

“I just wanted to be a part of it. I could see it so clearly that the vision of this was going to be even bigger than the visionaries could see,” Welling said, “because you bring the championships here, you bring the PGA brand here, you bring Omni here to be able to have hospitality and take care of all these people, it’s going to be a big deal, period. But what’s going to happen is (the PGA of America’s) members are going to come from all over the country and they’re going to learn something here and they’re going to take it back to their clubs and their courses. And then they’re going to bring their members, their students, and so the halo effect …

Construction continues on the new PGA of America headquarters in Frisco, Texas.

The courses — Welling’s West and Hanse’s East — are just part of the fun planned for this northern DFW suburb. The Omni project, which includes 501 guest rooms and seven four-bedroom golf villas, is also one component. The hotel will feature a dozen restaurants/food shops, three pools — including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool — 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, and a destination spa.

A 10-hole short course called The Swing and a 75,000 square foot putting course called the Dance Floor will also add to the flavor of the property.

“Does it get any cooler than that? The Dance Floor, the Swing, the East and West Course,” said Jim Richerson, the PGA of America president. “This is not only going to be a resort project, it’s going to be a project that’s going to make memories and create moments for families and generations to come. Not only to get into the game, but to spend time as families.”

Spring-only rankings for 2021 in men's college golf

  Spring-only rankings for 2021 in men's college golf College golf is a split-season, fall-and-spring sport. Still, teams can look drastically different when the calendar turns in the middle of the season – and that’s in a normal year. The COVID-19 pandemic certainly complicated college golf this year. Fewer than…The COVID-19 pandemic certainly complicated college golf this year. Fewer than 60 teams –with whole conferences, like the ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12 missing – competed in the fall season before nearly every team was back to competition in the spring. That means some teams already had a ranking, but against only a small number of teams, and some teams didn’t by the time the spring season started.

Originally,Gothic architecture was known as the French Style. During the Renaissance,after the French Style had fallen out of fashion, artisans mocked it. Theycoined the word Gothic to suggest that French Style buildings were the crudework of German (Goth) barbarians. Although the label wasn't accurate, the nameGothic remained.

Richerson was one of a group that stood at a location not far from Tuesday’s groundbreaking site a half-dozen years ago, when the PGA of America was looking at alternatives to build from its current home in West Palm Beach, Florida.


“Our mission is to not only elevate the status of PGA professionals but to grow the game. We had an opportunity to look around the country for a new headquarters and it started with a new building,” he said. “It started being about where can we relocate for the next 100 years for our new home. It turned into an unbelievable partnership.

“We’re so excited as an association to be here. We’re so excited to have this be our new headquarters. And we’re so excited to be part of what will be the new and modern home of American golf.”

Abbott touted the state’s economy, which he said improved in its world standing through the pandemic. The groundbreaking kicked off an aggressive timeline that is expected to have the Omni open in 2023. If all goes as planned, the two golf courses will be open to the public in summer of 2022,

“The PGA is learning what the Omni has long known and what Frisco loudly preaches — Texas truly is the best state in America for doing business and it just gets better day by day,” the governor said.

But Welling was the one who beamed the brightest. As he walked through the luncheon, discussing the project with local and national media members, he rarely lost a wide smile, even when discussing the challenges the project presented.

“I’m sure it’s going to have effects throughout the country for the game of golf,” Welling said. “I could see all that from the very beginning and so that’s why I said I’d design the parking lot. I just wanted to be involved. I’m so thankful and extraordinarily honored to be involved.”
