Rumor has it that PGA of America is moving headquarters to Frisco, Texas

According to a Golf.com report the PGA of America is planning to relocate its national headquarters from West Palm Beach, Fla. to Frisco, Texas.

It has been reported that the move has been in talks for five years. If this PGA/Frisco deal turns into a reality, Texas could host its first major championship since the 1968 PGA Championship at Pecan Valley Golf Club in San Antonio.

If the deal materializes the PGA of America will relocate to Frisco into a new development called Panther Creek. The site is expected to be the home of two semi-public courses, one designed by Gil Hanse and the other by Beau Welling.

Although PGA of America is not exposing much they did reveal to the Golf Channel, “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.”  Our sources are telling northDsports.com that an announcement will be made in the next few weeks and it appears that Frisco is definitely on the map potentially as the new headquarters for the PGA of America.

northDsports.com will keep the north Dallas Golf fans posted and although the PGA Championship is spoken for through 2024, the PGA’s decision to move the tournament to May is very interesting, due to the summer heat issues in our area. Regardless, our area could be looking at hosting a PGA Championship or a Ryder Cup in the upcoming years. Very exciting golf news.
