The PGA of America could be moving to Frisco, adding to the plethora of sports teams and sports headquarters that already call the city home.
An article published Wednesday evening by Golf.com, cited “multiple” PGA of America officials as saying that the national headquarters would be moving from West Palm Beach, Florida, to a new Panther Creek development in Frisco.
According to the article, the move would include two new 18-hole semi-public courses—one of which would be a championship course—a nine-hole course and a PGA Teaching Academy. The championship course would potentially host major PGA events including the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup, according to the report.
In a statement to Community Impact Newspaper, a PGA spokesperson said: “Last year we issued a request for proposal to a number of markets that are potentially well suited and interested in developing a new headquarters campus for us. The due diligence phase is ongoing and no decisions have been made.”
The city of Frisco would not confirm or deny the potential of PGA moving to Frisco.
Frisco is the home of multiple major sports teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Stars, FC Dallas, Frisco Roughriders and the Texas Legends.
In July 2017, the Frisco Convention & Visitors Bureau rebranded the city in a new branding campaign as “Sports City U.S.A.”
