Luxury Golf Resort Breaks Ground Near PGA Frisco, Guests ‘Can Hit From Their Hotel Rooms’

Aiming to appeal to all ages and levels of golfers, the Bays at Frisco is designed to be a unique social and entertainment hub that blends the traditional sport with modern technology. The four-story, 100K-SF "golf lab and suites" features a TaylorMade fitting center, a restaurant with a 100-foot video wall, a 25,000-SF putting area with bar, and more.

The Bays at Frisco, a high-tech, 18-acre golf resort being built in partnership with California-based TaylorMade, recently broke ground near PGA headquarters in Frisco.

Located between PGA Parkway and U.S. Highway 380 and set to open in late 2025, The Bays at Frisco is a four-story, 100,000-square-foot “golf lab and suites” equipped with real golf equipment and technology, restaurant and bar, and an onsite boutique hotel.

Dallas Innovates first wrote about The Bays last August when the project was announced.

“The rise of golf post-pandemic has soared as more flock to the outdoors for exercise, so we wanted to create an entertainment venue that includes various professional golf brands that will draw golfers of all levels over and over again,” The Bays Founder James Meese said in a statement. “The makeup of golfers has changed and grown into new cultures, and we are inspired to serve all audiences of North Texas who take an interest in golf.”

The Bays said it will be a unique social and entertainment hub that blends the traditional sport with modern technology. At the TaylorMade exclusive club-fitting experience, only the third TaylorMade fitting center in the nation, guests can watch as their new custom clubs are crafted onsite.

The resort said its guests will have full access to TaylorMade clubs and use true TaylorMade balls.

The Bays said it is designed to generate an immersive golf experience where all ages and levels, from avid golfers to novices, are presented with the opportunity to play across deluxe golf hitting bays and a spacious 25,000-square-foot putting green with an extensive bar.

The resort said that guests can make the restaurant itself a destination with a 100-foot-wide video wall along with upscale menu options prepared by the restaurant’s professional chef. A 12,000-square-foot private membership club will be on the third and fourth floors, the resort said.

The facility also will have dedicated space for corporate suites, events and partnerships.

‘The new modern home of golf’

“Golf, whether you do well that day or not, is truly about the experience and the memories made with your friends, and that is the exact idea of The Bays at Frisco,” J.R. Smith, two-time NBA champion and investment partner with The Bays, said in a statement. “James has created a great concept with luxury golf experiences and hospitality at The Bays in Frisco, and once it opens, it will definitely become my home away from home.”

The Bays will feature a boutique, 19-key hotel on the third and fourth floors with suites, each with its own private hitting bay, and one- and two-bedroom rooms. Executive suites will be available for corporate events or office retreats.

The hotel will feature a rooftop pool with cabanas for guests.

“Breaking ground on The Bays with a TaylorMade experience will set this golf experience above any other consumer golf experience currently available,” Meese said. “Having TaylorMade’s golf equipment leadership and fitting expertise directly available to players allows The Bays to give guests a true Tour experience. TaylorMade and The Bays will be a great marriage in Frisco, the new modern home of golf.”

The Bays said it chose Frisco as the site for its first location because it has become an entertainment and golf center.

PGA Frisco has opened and expanded over the past two years, including the PGA of America headquarters, two new 18-hole championship courses, a 510-room Omni Resort, a 30-acre practice facility, a performance center, and a modern clubhouse.
