PGA of America moving headquarters to Texas

The PGA of America is relocating to Frisco and Texas will host two upcoming US PGA Championships. The decision followed approval by the Frisco City Council and other government entities.

Said PGA of America Chief Membership Officer John Easterbrook in a statement: "With PGA Frisco, the PGA of America begins an exciting new chapter in our 102-year history".

The PGA said the study took into account the economics of golf course activities like tournaments, plus the additional impact from a new conference center at the development.

Along with the PGA Championships, the PGA of America said the courses will host two KPMG Women's PGA Championships and possibly a Ryder Cup (the earliest date for that would be 2040). It will be the first time the PGA Championship is held in the Dallas area since Jack Nicklaus won his first Wanamaker Trophy in 1963 at Dallas Athletic Club.

The 2027 and 2034 PGA Championships will be played at a to-be-built course in Frisco, which will also become the new home of the PGA of America.

China Hails Trump-Xi Summit, Says "Very Confident" in Trade Deal
They say that suggests China will need to find issues on which it can show progress to persuade Trump to extend his deadline. China's ultimate goal during the 90-day trade talks is to remove all USA tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, Gao said.

The upscale development, which will be open to the public as well as golfers, will be at Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive, roughly a third of a mile south of US 380. Coupled with the PGA Championship's move to May and the landscape looks a lot different today than it did two years ago.

The PGA of America will be moving its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens to Frisco, Texas.

A welcoming gateway at Frisco's northern border, the upscale development will be located at Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive, approximately one-third of a mile south of USA 380. The PGA of America will invest $30 million to build its 100,000-square-foot global headquarters and education facility. Most of the cost of the development falls to Omni Stillwater Woods, a joint venture by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital. Omni Stillwater Woods will invest $455 million to purchase the land, construct the hotel, conference centre, retail space, parking facilities and golf courses. The golf courses, clubhouse, practice areas and associated public facilities will be owned by the city, with the golf facilities open to local high school golfers.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Gil Hanse, who designed the Olympic golf course in Rio, has been chosen to do one of the courses.
