Last week, our team headed to Frisco, Texas to celebrate the official topping-out ceremony for the Omni PGA Frisco Resort. It’s a huge milestone, not only for our team, but for all of the design teams involved in bringing this incredible project to life. The ceremony included placing an Evergreen atop the building along with the American flag, and an unveiling of the resort’s model guestrooms.
The Omni PGA Frisco Resort, will become a leading destination for golf providing an unparalleled experience for those who are advanced players, new to the game, and everything in between.
“We’re excited to hit this important milestone for the Omni PGA Frisco Resort. This topping-out ceremony represents the culmination of a design process that began in January 2019. It’s been SB Architects pleasure to spearhead this effort and to collaborate with an industry leading group of hospitality professionals, to create a cutting-edge destination resort that will reposition and modernize golf in America, serving as an exciting benchmark for future development.”

Scheduled for completion in 2023, the design for the destination golf course, Omni PGA Frisco Resort, and premier golf and retail experience, will usher in a new era for the sport. Inspired by Texas Modernism, the architecture is timeless with contemporary touches to reflect the future-thinking approach of the development.
“It’s been an incredible journey with an amazing client, consultant, and construction team. When you think that we were all stomping around an overgrown and marshy site just over three years ago and now the overall design vision is taking shape at a record pace, it truly will be a world class destination.”
“It’s really awarding to see your design come to life. Brasfield & Gorrie and our consultants have done an amazing job with helping us realize this design. I’d like to thank Omni for the opportunity to work on such an amazing project. Omni PGA will truly be an amazing resort destination!”
The resort will feature 510 luxurious guest rooms, private golf villas, each with dramatic views of two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Beau Welling and Gil Hanse. Additionally, the resort will feature, a lighted 10-hole short course and two-acre putting green, Lounge by Topgolf, PGA Frisco Coaching Center and a practice facility will be anchored by a clubhouse and entertainment district.
“I was inspired and humbled to see the immense amount of work taking place on the site. I am proud to be a part of the amazing team bringing this project to fruition.”
After PGA of America’s 56 years in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, the move to Frisco, Texas signals an exciting change. Named the “2018 Best Place to Live in America,” Frisco will be transformed with this development, bringing new vitality and economic growth to the local community. The inspiring architecture of the Omni PGA Frisco Resort complements the vision for this bold, state-of-the-art development, set to bring in a new chapter for the future of golf in America.
“The topping-out ceremony for the Omni PGA Frisco Resort was incredible. When celebrating such a significant milestone, we’re able to take a step back and appreciate every stakeholders contribution to the collective effort. The tremendous energy from Omni TRT, Stillwater Capital, Brasfield & Gorrie, SB Architects, and so many more, has been building to a crescendo. And now as a result, we can touch, see, and experience what was once just an idea, a conversation, some ink on paper.”
