PGA’s New Frisco Headquarters Chooses NorthBridge® Bermudagrass
In 2018, the PGA of America announced plans to move its company headquarters from West Palm Beach, Florida to Frisco, Texas. That announcement is a reality now as the two championship golf courses in Texas have taken shape. The two courses, designed by Beau Welling and Gil Hanse plan to host over 26 championship events in the coming years including two PGA Championships.
NorthBridge® Bermudagrass was chosen to cover the 180 acres including the courses and practice facility. Senior Director of Golf Maintenance Operations, Roger Meier said that they used other local courses that had put in NorthBridge Bermudagrass as a benchmark in making their decision.
“Hosting our major championships in May, it was critical for us to have a grass that would break dormancy early, have great color and be superior in performance from a playability standpoint. We’re really excited too about the grass for its versatility,” said Roger Meier, Senior Director of Maintenance Operations.
The Omni PGA Frisco Resort and courses are expected to open in Spring 2023. See more photos of the new PGA of America headquarters here.
