PGA Frisco, the new home of the PGA of America just north of Dallas, officially opens for golf today, with the property’s Fields Ranch West course accepting tee times for play from this point onward. The other course on property, Fields Ranch East, officially opens for public tee times starting May 30.
The West was designed by golf architect Beau Welling and plays along Panther Creek in a prairie setting with oak and mesquite trees. The East, designed by the team of Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner, will play host to 26 championships through 2034, including the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship on May 25-28.
The Fields Ranch courses are part of the Omni PGA Frisco Resort that includes a 500-room hotel, 10 four-bedroom ranch houses, a spa, two ballrooms, 19 meeting rooms, nine outdoor event venues, a pavilion, 13 restaurants and bars, and retail shops. The property also serves as the new headquarters for the PGA of America, which previously had been located in South Florida.
Besides the two main courses, Fields Ranch also is home to a 10-hole lighted short course named The Swing and a lighted 2-acre putting course named The Dance Floor. It also includes the data-driven PGA Coaching Center and the Jerry J. Ransom Northern Texas PGA Golf House.
