University of North Texas, PGA of America sign memorandum of understanding

PGA of American headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens. The organization will move to Texas in 2022

The move is not expected until the summer of 2022, about the time the two golf courses, a 9-hole short course and practice areas are to be finished.

It's official: the PGA of America is moving to Frisco, Texas, and bringing some big time tournaments with it. The PGA of America is leaving Florida for a $520 million development in the Dallas area with two golf courses that will bring major championship golf back to Texas.

Along with the PGA Championships, the PGA of America said the courses will host two KPMG Women's PGA Championships and possibly a Ryder Cup (the earliest date for that would be 2040).

After months of speculation, it was officially announced Tuesday night that the organization that's been based in Palm Beach County for over 50 years will be moving to a 600-acre, mixed-use development with an initial investment worth more than half a billion dollars.

The last major in Texas was the 1969 U.S. Open in Houston.

North Carolina GOP leader says he's "horrified" by allegations of election fraud
That's a shift for Woodhouse, who previously dismissed such calls as a Democratic attempt to steal the election from Harris. The unofficial tally of results had Harris winning the race in southeastern North Carolina by a little over 900 votes.

A welcoming gateway at Frisco's northern border, the upscale development will be located at Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive, approximately one-third of a mile south of USA 380. The PGA of America said it will invest $30 million to construct its 100,000-square-foot global headquarters and education facility.

The PGA of America is teaming with Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital; the City of Frisco, as well as its Economic and Community Development Corporations; and the Frisco Independent School District. Omni Stillwater Woods will spend $455 million to buy the land and build the hotel, conference center, retail space, parking and the golf courses.

The 2027 and 2034 PGA Championships will be played at a to-be-built course in Frisco, which will also become the new home of the PGA of America.

To develop unparalleled educational opportunities for students in fields related to sport entertainment management, the University of North Texas and the Professional Golfers' Association of America signed a memorandum of understanding on education, research and branding initiatives for both entities.

A key component of the event is the PGA WORKS Career Expo, where student-athletes are exposed to internships and employment opportunities, as well as networking and career development sessions supported and attended by leading golf companies.
