Development plans for the future headquarters of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America faced both denial and approval by the Frisco Planning & Zoning Commission.

A conveyance plat was approved, but open space and site plans were denied at a Feb. 11 meeting.

What was approved

The commission approved a conveyance plat for a golf course, a potential country club, four retail buildings, two restaurant buildings, an office building, an indoor commercial amusement building, a hotel and convention center, and a reception hall building.

A conveyance plat is property approved by the city for the purpose of sale in its entirety or interests.


The plat covers six lots on around 642 acres on the east side of Teel Parkway north of Panther Creek Parkway, according to city documents.

What was denied

Open space and site plans were denied by the commission for a hotel and convention center and a reception hall over nearly 31 acres.

Open space plans guide the preservation of undeveloped land and site plans detail a project's architectural plan.

The development to be located on the southwest corner of future Legacy Drive and future Rockhill Parkway was denied due to the extent of change on the site plan from what was approved on the preliminary site plan, per city documents.

After another review by development staff, the project fails to meet the city’s subdivision ordinance; zoning ordinance; engineering standards; and other city codes, ordinances, regulations, rules, policies or standards, per city documents.
