Dallas News offers inside look at PGA Frisco
In early June, the Dallas News published an update on the PGA of America’s new Frisco headquarters, now under way next to Hollyhock, with a gallery of 22 photos showing the latest progress on this exciting $520 million development.
PGA Frisco includes the PGA’s headquarters complex and two championship golf courses that will provide distinctly different experiences amid scenic, rolling terrain. The development will also have a 10-hole short course, a 100,000-square-foot putting course, and an Omni resort hotel.
PGA CEO Seth Waugh called it the “Silicon Valley of Golf” for its potential to advance the game.
Golf course architect Beau Welling, who designed the West Course, said it will offer a “fun, yet challenging test of golf that can be both a family-friendly experience as well as a championship caliber test.”
“I’m a big believer that golf is a uniter of people,” Welling told the Dallas News. “We really want it to be accessible to as many people as possible.”
The East Course, designed by Gil Hanse, was awarded the 2027 PGA Championship before the first shovel of dirt was turned.
Here are some more fun facts from the Dallas News article:
- About 1,300 trees have been planted
- 5 million cubic yards of dirt and 200,000 tons of sand has been used
- 50 acres of wetlands have been created on both courses to create hazards and homes for wildlife
- Panther Creek meanders through the development, providing hazards for both courses
- An 8-mile concrete pathway circles the PGA property. When not in use to service major tournaments, it will be open to the public as part of Frisco’s trail system.
