Last August, the PGA of America opened its new headquarters in Frisco, offering 600 PGA members, dignitaries, and guests a look at what it called “a destination for the future of golf.” Today, something opened just steps away that will be a prime stopover for that destination—the new $520 million Omni PGA Frisco Resort.
Today’s ribbon-cutting marks a new milestone in the 660-acre PGA Frisco campus, which will include two new 18-hole championship courses, a 30-acre practice facility, a performance center, and the PGA District, featuring a “one-of-a-kind” indoor and outdoor golf-centered entertainment area.
“Texas is already a prime destination for tourists and golfers, but with more than two dozen tournaments already scheduled for this amazing resort, it will encourage even more growth and investment in the Frisco area,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said at today’s event. Abbott helped cut the ribbon before 350 community and business leaders and noted that the new resort will create 1,000 new jobs.
500 guest rooms, a Lounge by Topgolf, and golf options galore
The Omni PGA Frisco Resort tees up a lot more than 500 guest rooms plus suites. It also offers 10 four-bedroom ranch houses, four pools including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool, a full-service Mokara Spa, a Lounge by Topgolf, and more than 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
If you check in you may need to work on your swing, and there are plenty of ways to do that. The resort offers “unique simulation and coaching experiences” along with playing options including the two 18-hole championship golf courses—Fields Ranch East, designed by Gil Hanse, and Fields Ranch West, designed by Beau Welling.
If you’re not a long hitter or your short game needs work, there’s The Swing, a lighted 10-hole, par-3 short course. There’s also The Dance Floor, a two-acre putting course and entertainment area.
Not to mention 13 restaurant and bar offerings, including Trick Rider (above) which features a 16-foot-long, nine-foot-high crystal horse chandelier is suspended above Trick Rider’s bar.
One more reason the Dallas area has become America’s golf capital
The resort is scheduled to host the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship on May 24-28, 2023. An additional 26 additional championships are already scheduled—including two PGA championship events and the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship—through 2034.
The new Omni resort adds to a long list of reasons the Dallas area is becoming America’s golf capital. In addition to the PGA of America HQ in Frisco, Dallas is the corporate home of Topgolf, Drive Shack, Drive Shack’s Puttery entertainment concept, Invited (formerly ClubCorp), and Arcis Golf. Those last two are the No. 1 and No. 2 owners of golf and country clubs in the U.S.
North Texas is also home to the first Puttery mini golf and restaurant/bar concept, at Grandscape in The Colony, where Tiger Woods’ PopStroke mini golf concept is also slated to open by early 2024.
