The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America is expected to move its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens to a Frisco, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.

The Frisco City Council will vote Tuesday on a proposed public/private partnership to make the town the new home of PGA of America, whose 28,000 members are golf course owners and managers.

Dallas TV station WFAA reported that a majority of the city council members will vote in favor a proposed development that would include a new headquarters for PGA of America, two 18-hole golf courses and an Omni Hotels & Resorts property.

WFAA also reported that billionaire Robert Rowling, founder of the holding company of Dallas-based Omni Hotels & Resorts, has played a pivotal role in trying to lure the PGA of America headquarters to Frisco.

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

PGA of America is separate from the PGA Tour, which is based near Jacksonville in Ponte Vedra Beach. [] – Mike Seemuth
