• PGA HQ Headed ‘FORE’ Frisco

    Development plans also call for a resort, golf courses and a convention center.

     
    FROM THE Spring 2019 Issue ISSUE
     

Wtih Frisco named the  “2018 Best Place to Live in America” by Money magazine, it’s no surprise that the PGA of America headquarters is relocating to the north Texas city. The PGA is planning a 600-acre, mixed-use development and is partnering with the Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital. In addition to two championship golf courses, a short course, practice areas and a clubhouse, the development will include Class AA office space, a 500-room Omni Resort and a 127,000-square-foot convention center. The golf courses are expected to open in the summer of 2022, and the hotel and convention center are expected to open within the following six months. The development will host the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in 2023 as well as two PGA Championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships and a potential Ryder Cup.  

In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
