PGA of America closing in on $500m Texas move

The PGA of America is poised to finalize its long-rumoured move from Florida to Texas, according to multiple reports. This week the Frisco city council will vote on the potential $500m (€440m) relocation.

The Frisco facility, which will have two 18-hole courses as well as a 100,000 square-foot headquarters, would host multiple PGA of America events, including the PGA Championship.

“The PGA of America is pursuing an agreement for a transformational headquarters in Frisco. Until the process is complete, we will have no further comment,” a PGA spokesperson told Golf Digest.

Palm Beach Gardens has played home to the PGA of America since 1965. Negotiations have been ongoing with Frisco since the middle of 2017, though remaining in Florida at another location had remained an option for PGA throughout the process.

It is unclear if the PGA of America will maintain a satellite office in Florida.
