It’s official, the PGA Headquarters are moving from Palm Beach, Florida and relocating to: Frisco, Texas.
The question is will the championship be coming with it?
Recently cbs.com sported an article about the move but raised the question about a championship coming along with the relocation.
What’s already known is that Frisco will host two PGA Championships — in 2027 and 2034. The question is if that includes a future Ryder Cup.
It’s all in the details
PGA of America is set to invest in the over $500 million project in Frisco that includes a hotel, retail space, and two golf courses.
The author of the post wrote that he believed those to golf courses are what may be the deciding factor as to whether or not a Ryder Cup will happen. He also had his doubts as to Frisco being able to handle a championship:
It’s an interesting move as the PGA of America will be moving from Palm Beach County to the suburb of suburbs in north Texas. Frisco is a fine place to raise a family. I’m not sure if it’s a fine place to host a Ryder Cup. Who knows, though, these might be two absolute gems of courses, and the hype for the 2040 Ryder Cup (or whenever it is) might be overwhelming.
Well, Mr. CBS, as we say in Texas, “Hold my hand-crafted, locally brewed, affordable and served in a safe environment because we are the best place to live and raise a family- beer”.
This is Texas.
One could say though those two golf courses will have a lot “Rydering’ on them. Get it?
Alright, back to the details.
“The decision to relocate their headquarters to Texas because of our business-friendly climate is a welcome one. I thank the PGA of America for the new jobs and investment that they will bring to the City of Frisco, wish them continued success, and welcome them to the Lone Star State, the home of champions.”
