Omni tees off $500m golf resort development

by | 17 May 2021 | Design

Construction has started on the US$500 million Omni PGA Frisco Resort scheme, which boasts a stellar design team that includes SB Architects, Robert Glazier Architects and Jeffrey Beers International.

Created in partnership with PGA of America and the City of Frisco, this development by Omni Hotels & Resorts is on track to become a world-class destination for golfers of all levels in Texas.

Huge golf resort set to swing into Frisco

Planned for a debut in spring 2023, this new property is set to feature 501 luxury guestrooms and seven four-bedroom golf villas with views of two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Beau Welling and Gil Hanse. PGA Frisco is the new home of the PGA Headquarters.

Peter Strebel, president of Omni Hotel & Resorts, broke ground on the project alongside owners Bob Rowling, founder of TRT Holdings, and Blake Rowling, president of TRT Holdings, as well as governor Greg Abbott, mayor Jeff Cheney and PGA president Jim Richerson.

“Today marks an exciting new chapter for Omni Hotels & Resorts as we break ground on our first resort to be built from the ground up,” said Strebel. “We’re honoured to be able to celebrate this momentous occasion in our home state of Texas and to build the Omni brand’s flagship resort in the city of Frisco. Omni Hotels & Resorts exists to provide guests authentically local experiences and this stunning resort will certainly create a lasting legacy for golf enthusiasts, families and groups for generations to come.”

The resort is being taken forward in collaboration with SB Architects and Robert Glazier Architects, as well as interior design firm Jeffrey Beers International and general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie. Representing a US$500 million investment into the City of Frisco, Omni PGA Frisco Resort is the largest resort currently under development in the US.

A dream destination for golfers

The resort’s design will be locally inspired with a contemporary twist and residential feel. Its architecture will take cues from the modern ranch-style homes found throughout Texas and the two championship golf courses will be on display through floor-to-ceiling windows, while the interiors will also integrate subtle nods to golf.

Omni PGA Frisco Resort’s 12 dining outlets will cater for resort guests, visitors, the local community and members, with options ranging from fine dining to casual across the signature restaurant, all-day dining venue, lobby bar, café and ice cream shop. Adding to these facilities will be a wellness offering based around a destination spa with salon services and multiple swimming pools, including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool with outdoor bar.

The resort will cater for golfers of all levels. The two championship golf courses will be joined by a ten-hole short course and two-acre putting green, as well as the Lounge by Topgolf, PGA Frisco Coaching Center and a practice facility. Additional outdoor activities are to include tennis and bocce ball.

Finally, the hotel will have 127,000 sq ft of event space, which includes a ballroom, junior ballroom and dedicated meeting space with event lawns and pre-function space overlooking the golf courses.
