An economic development official in Palm Beach County said PGA of America hasn’t decided whether to move its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens, despite a report to the contrary.

In a report on March 7, Golf.com reported March 7 that PGA of America had decided to move its headquarters to Frisco, Texas, which is about 27 miles north of Dallas.

Golf.com quoted unnamed PGA officials who called the organization’s Palm Beach headquarters “outdated and out of space.”

But Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, told the Sun-Sentinel daily newspaper that no decision on the location of its headquarters has been made by the PGA, short for Professional Golfers Association.

The organization has 200 employees at its 60,000-square-foot headquarters at 100 Avenue of the Champions in Palm Beach Gardens.

Smallridge said the Business Development Board has proposed as many as seven sites in Palm Beach County for a new PGA headquarters to keep the organization’s home office in the county.

She said PGA of America told her approximately nine months ago that it was seeking a new site for a headquarters to replace the existing one in Palm Beach Gardens.

PGA of America is separate from the PGA Tour, which is based near Jacksonville in Ponte Vedra Beach, where it plans to build a new 187,000-square-foot headquarters. The members of PGA of America include professional golfers and golf course owners. [Palm Beach Post] Mike Seemuth
