Omni PGA Frisco Resort, scheduled to open in spring 2023, is now open for group booking requests. 

Located in Frisco, 30 miles north of Dallas, the 500-room resort will feature more than 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, including a 22,000-square-foot grand ballroom, an 11,500-square-foot junior ballroom and a 5,000-square-foot event pavilion.

“With group meetings and events returning quickly, we are eager to share our exciting new resort for groups to consider for June 2023 events and beyond,” says Jeff Smith, vice president and managing director for Omni PGA Frisco Resort. “Omni PGA Frisco is excited to see the role it will play being a state-of-the-art meetings destination in Texas.” 

The resort is a partnership with PGA of America and the City of Frisco. In addition to the 500 guest rooms and suites, it will include 10 four-bedroom modern-Texas ranch houses, three pools (including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool), a spa and 12 dining outlets. Sharing an address with the PGA, it will also have two 18-hole championship courses designed by Gil Hanse and Beau Welling, a lighted 10-hole short course, a two-acre putting green, lounge by Topgolf, PGA Frisco coaching center, and an entertainment district.

When open, the resort will play host to the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, and 26 additional championships scheduled in Frisco through 2034, including two PGA Championship events, and the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. 

Group requests can be made via Omni PGA Frisco Resort’s group sales team at 469-305-4545 or email DALPGA.leads@omnihotels.com.

Moody Center, a multi-purpose venue located in downtown Austin, opened its doors this past April. The sold-out grand opening show was a Texas-sized celebration featuring artist George Strait with special guests Willie Nelson & Family and Randy Rogers Band. 

 

The Valencia Hotel Group is known for designing spaces that are not only located in desirable destinations but have become desirable destinations in and of themselves. Those spaces are augmented by the group’s renowned service culture that comes from having a well-trained, well-seasoned team of associates who are committed to the company’s emphasis on high-touch service.

 

With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.
