PGA of America making moves to leave Palm Beach County and Florida

It’s been no secret the PGA of America (not to be confused with the Ponte Vedre-based PGA Tour), which moved its headquarters to Palm Beach County in 1965 was seeking a new home. However, it was thought that Florida might very well remain the home of the organization.

This past weekend, published reports have surfaced that Texas will be the new home for the PGA of America, pending approval from Frisco City Council later this week. 

According to Golf Digest, “The deal in Texas is expected to include a 100,000 square-foot headquarters, two 18-hole championship-caliber courses and a nine-hole practice course, along with a new resort. Additionally, multiple PGA of America-hosted championships are also expected to be played in Frisco, including two PGA Championships. “

The loss of the PGA of America would represent a blow to Florida’s prestige in the sporting world. The vote of Frisco City Council will take place Tuesday.
