The PGA office at PGA Frisco has been officially named the Dr. Jerry J. Ransom Northern Texas PGA Golf House after Dr. Jerry J. Ransom, mayor of Greenville according to a Local Profile article. They say,
“Choosing a name is a big decision. Most parents agonize over it for weeks or months, and Frisco’s baby isn’t any different. The Northern Texas PGA office at PGA Frisco has officially been named the Dr. Jerry J. Ransom Northern Texas PGA Golf House.
The namesake of the new golf house is Dr. Jerry J. Ransom, who of course, loves golf. Ransom has been the mayor of Greenville, Texas since 2021 and was born in Kansas City, Missouri. “The Northern Texas PGA Foundation does so many wonderful things to grow the game for kids in North Texas, and with the Golf house, I look forward to helping them make a bigger impact,” said Jerry Ransom in an official statement. “Helping to make the NTPGA’s dream of having their own homesite a reality is something special that I knew I wanted to be a part of.”
Omni PGA Frisco, the coming resort owned by Omni Hotels, will be a game changer for golf according to a Local Profile article which reports,
“Omni PGA Frisco, Fields Ranch East and West on 660 acres of former North Texas farmland in far North Frisco will be a game changer for golf, sports and entertainment. Located at the new, modern PGA of America headquarters, the courses are owned by Dallas-based Omni Hotels, which will have a massive 550-room resort here and the PGA (Professional golfers of America) of America will oversee golf operations on city of Frisco land.
Almost every spare inch of this new North Texas golfing utopia will be open to the public from the huge, Texas-sized putting green (the Dance Floor) to the 10-hole short course (The Swing) to the resort and two courses, The East designed by Gil Hanse and The West, a Beau Welling design. Heck, even the Northern Texas PGA will have an awesome synthetic putting and chipping complex here open to the public when not in use for NTPGA activities.
Add nearly a dozen public eating, drinking and shopping establishments, the PGA District, all overseen by a huge electronic TV screen, plus a three-mile walk/bike/pet trail and you’ve got a golfing paradise no matter if you’re a thoroughly hooked hacker, a casual golfer or just somebody who wants in on the non-stop action. In the final construction phase, everything should be open in spring 2023.”
Set to open in 2023, golf and green grass entertainment in Frisco will never be the same again.
