The Professional Golfers’ Association of America will relocate its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida to Frisco, Texas. The company plans to bring $30 million in capital investment and a minimum of 100 new jobs to the Lone Star State. As a incentive, the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant of up to $1,500,000 has been extended to The PGA of America.
“The PGA of America is very proud to call Frisco our new home,” said CEO Seth Waugh. “We welcome the opportunity to develop friendships and partnerships with the community and its residents, as well as across North Texas and throughout the state. We are grateful to the City of Frisco, the State of Texas and Omni Stillwater Woods for embracing our vision of creating a transformational headquarters that, together with our world-class partners, helps us advance our mission of serving our nearly 29,000 PGA Golf Professionals and growing the game.”
“Today is both historic and transformational for the City of Frisco,” said Mayor Jeff Cheney. “Not only will this signature development change the future of Frisco’s northern landscape, it will transform the sport, growing a new generation of pros, fans and golf enthusiasts. As Sports City, USA, we’re thrilled to partner with another world class brand like PGA of America. We’re also honored Omni is, once again, committing such a huge investment in our community, recognizing the potential to grow entertainment, tourism and economic development in one of the fastest growing cities in America.”
“For years, the PGA of America has served its membership all across the nation where they engage their local communities, and help to raise over $4 billion annually,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “The decision to relocate their headquarters to Texas because of our business-friendly climate is a welcome one. I thank the PGA of America for the new jobs and investment that they will bring to the City of Frisco, wish them continued success, and welcome them to the Lone Star State, the home of champions.”
