PGA of America headed to Texas

The PGA of America will be relocating its headquarters to Frisco, Texas from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. With it comes a commitment to bring the 2027 and 2034 PGA Championships to the state. Texas last hosted a major at the 1969 US Open, but with the PGA Championship’s move from August to May the event now lines up well with the Texas PGA Tour swing, as well as a cooler month.

“Our move to Frisco will be transcendent for the PGA of America,” said PGA of America chief executive Seth Waugh in a statement. “Everything great starts with a dream. This is the beginning of a bold, new journey as we bring together world-class partners in a world-class location — to deliver innovative and differentiated experiences for our nearly 29,000 PGA Golf Professionals, golfers of all abilities and our staff.”

The PGA has been based in Florida since 1965 and will initially employ 100 people in Frisco, following the move.
