The PGA of America has begun construction on its new headquarters in Frisco.
The 106,622-square-foot office building, designed by architect Page Southerland Page, will sit on more than 6 acres that are part of the 660-acre PGA Frisco campus, which also includes an Omni hotel and resort and two golf courses.
The four-story glass-and-limestone building will house 150 PGA corporate employees. There’s a conference room and outdoor terrace overlooking one of the golf courses.
“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.”
Construction on the PGA building was delayed because of the pandemic but is now underway.
Adolfson & Peterson Construction is the general contractor. Cushman & Wakefield is a development adviser on the project.
The headquarters is set to open in early 2022 just south of U.S. Highway 380.
“We are so proud to be a part of this project,” said Brad Blankenship, senior managing director of Cushman & Wakefield. “Our primary goal is to deliver on the promise to create an extraordinary new home for the PGA of America’s headquarters.
The PGA of America announced that it was moving its base from Florida to Frisco in 2018. Construction began on the golf courses and site work last year.
