Crews have reached the midpoint of construction on the new corporate headquarters for the PGA of America in Frisco, according to a March 26 news release.

The building, per the release, will promote the PGA’s mission to combine state-of-the-art education facilities and a world-class workplace.

The professional office building and parking garage will span over 6 acres along future PGA Way and Rockhill Parkway. The entire PGA Frisco campus will reside on 660 acres and will include two new championship golf courses, a 500-room Omni PGA Frisco Resort and an entertainment district in addition to the headquarters building, according to the news release.

“Reaching the halfway mark in the construction of any project is cause for celebration, but this milestone with the PGA of America in Frisco is especially poignant,” said Granger Hassmann, vice president of preconstruction and estimating for Adolfson & Peterson Construction, in the release. “The autographed beam hoisted to the top of the structure really represents the close collaboration and successful partnership between the PGA of America, Cushman & Wakefield, Page, the City of Frisco and AP during a very challenging year.”

The four-story headquarters will initially hold about 150 corporate employees and will have three floors of office space, a top-floor conference room and an outdoor terrace lounge space overlooking the golf course, the news release stated.


The ground floor of the headquarters will serve guests with a video studio and education center, per the release. The lobby will have a wood design that will mimic the contours of a golf course and will have gardens filled with native plants.

The new PGA headquarters is projected to open in the first quarter of 2022. In addition to a golf education space, it will also feature indoor training facilities, such as a chipping area, a putting green, driving range simulators and three bays where exterior wall panels open out for hitting to the actual driving range. A trophy gallery will also be a key feature of the new building.

“This important milestone in the development of our new headquarters is an exciting time for the PGA of America,” PGA President Jim Richerson said in the release. “We are proud to be working with our partners to build a landmark destination. Our headquarters will be the heartbeat of our Association and is an important component of an innovative and beautiful campus that will define PGA Frisco and serve as a positive addition to the community.”
