How close to Hollyhock is the new PGA?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, doesn’t that also apply to a map?
To show just how close the new PGA of America headquarters is to Hollyhock, we created this new map. In short, the PGA will literally be our next-door neighbor when it opens in 2022, bringing 45 holes of golf, world-class shopping, and more parks and trails literally up to our backyard.
And the PGA is only the beginning. Read on to see how our future close neighbors will include everything from shopping to healthcare.
The latest PGA update
Fields House, Hollyhock’s gleaming community center, was recently packed a crowd of real estate agents and local media who came out to hear the latest news about the new PGA of America headquarters, now under development on a Frisco site adjacent to Hollyhock.
The presentation, delivered by Frisco Economic Development Corporation President Ron Patterson, began with a little background on how Frisco became Sports City USA – with the PGA representing the city’s 8th major pro sports attraction.
Patterson recalled how Frisco was once a small town with just a few stoplights. Even attracting a new shopping center was a major challenge, and the Dallas North Tollway was still a dream. What happened since then has been the result of deliberate planning on the part of city leaders.
Frisco’s first major sports coup was attracting the Frisco RoughRiders, a Minor League Baseball team founded in 2014. Since then, Frisco has become home to 8 pro sports organizations, including the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Legends, Dallas Stars, Texas Revolution, FC Dallas, Dallas Rattlers, and most recently the PGA.
Frisco recently dubbed itself Sports City, U.S.A. to promote its status as home to so many teams and arenas, and all the lifestyle and economic benefits that come along with that.
Frisco’s central location – within a day’s drive of many major U.S. hubs – was central to attracting the PGA, as it was to drawing other sports teams and businesses, Patterson said.
Patterson said the PGA HQ in Frisco will be operational by 2022. It is being developed by a partnership that includes Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts, with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital; the City of Frisco, including its Economic and Community Development Corporations; and the Frisco Independent School District.
The PGA HW will be part of a 600-acre mixed-use development to be located at the future intersection of Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive. Representing an initial development of more than $500 million, it will have a total of 45 holes of golf, including two 18-hole championship courses, one nine-hole executive course, and practice areas.
It will also have a 500-room Omni resort with 127,000 square feet of conference space. There will also be a clubhouse, Class AA office space, a technologically advanced retail village, parks and open space, and several miles of trails.
Patterson said that the goal will be to complete all components of the mixed-use development at roughly the same time. He added that even though the golf courses will be completed on time, they may need additional time to grow in before they are ready for play.
The PGA’s 100,000-square-foot headquarters will include an education facility that will provide more than 300 Frisco ISD students with opportunities to practice and play.
The PGA’s agreement also guarantees several major golf events for Frisco, including two PGA championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA championships, and a possible Ryder Cup tournament.

More new attractions
As our map also shows, some major new shopping and healthcare facilities have recently opened or plan to open soon near or adjacent to Hollyhock.
Hollyhock borders part of the new Windsong Marketplace, a mixed-use development that spans all four corners of the Highway 380 and FM 423 intersection. Major anchors include Kroger, Home Depot, and numerous restaurants and smaller stores and service providers.
Anchored by a Walmart Supercenter and a collection of restaurants and specialty stores, Frisco Crossing is another new shopping center near Hollyhock.
Just a little bit down Highway 380, at the Dallas North Tollway, the 77-acre Lesso Mall is described as a game-changer – a multi-level marketplace that will include shopping, dining, entertainment, hotel and office space, and much more.
New healthcare facilities are also coming near Hollyhock, including Cook Children’s North Campus at Highway 380 and Windsong Parkway. The first phase, opening in the fall of 2019, will include primary and urgent care wings. In spring 2020, the campus will add specialty care, ambulatory surgery, imaging and outpatient services.
Texas Health Hospital Frisco is completing a 20-acre campus with 140 beds, a brain institute, cancer center, state-of-the-art rehabilitation center and pediatrics unit. A collaboration between Texas Health and UT Southwestern Medical Center, it is located at Eldorado Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway. The 325,000-square-foot facility represents an investment of $270 million and is planned to open in the fall of 2019.
