Two years ago, the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America announced it was moving its headquarters from Florida to Frisco. Last year, construction began for the site work and the golfing area. This year, construction was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and now, construction finally resumes for the new base of the PGA of America.
A Frisco civic alert states
“Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, along with Cushman & Wakefield and Page, have commenced construction on the new corporate headquarters for the PGA of America in Frisco, Texas. The new building will promote the PGA’s mission to bring state-of-the-art education facilities and a world-class workplace together. This public-private partnership teams the PGA of America with Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater and Woods Capital; the City of Frisco, as well as its Economic and Community Development Corporations; and the Frisco Independent School District.”
The whole property will span 106,622-square-feet and stand at four stories tall. The glass and limestone building will comfortably house 150 PGA corporate employees. The architect is Page Southerland Page, and the whole property will sit atop more than six acres on part of the 660-acre PGA Frisco campus. The PGA Frisco campus will have its own Omni hotel and resort, as well as two fully operational golf courses. There will be a conference room and an outdoor terrace that will overlook the golf course.
“This is a historic moment for the PGA of America, as we see the vision for our new PGA headquarters come to life,” PGA of America Chief Operating Officer Darrell Crall said in a statement. “The modern home of American golf at PGA Frisco is now within our sight, and we’re delighted to break ground on our new state-of-the-art headquarters, which will serve as a destination for our nearly 29,000 PGA members, and a catalyst for an inclusive and diverse workforce.”
The new building is set to open in 2022.
