The move is not expected until the summer of 2022, about the time the two golf courses, a 9-hole short course and practice areas are to be finished.

Earlier this year, North Texas revealed plans to build a new campus in Frisco, which will be close to the new PGA headquarters in Frisco.

"The mission of the PGA Minority Collegiate Championship Advisory Council is to align PGA staff, with college coaches, athletic administration and related golf and business leaders to establish a collaborative environment created to share expert perspectives and drive strategic planning that can enhance our overall program, while consistently shaping the narrative of the PGA Minority Collegiate Championship and PGA WORKS Career Expo moving forward", said Scooter Clark, Championship Manager, PGA Minority Collegiate Championship.

The PGA of America is relocating to Frisco and Texas will host two upcoming US PGA Championships.

Under the agreement, the PGA Championship will be held on one of the two courses in 2027 and 2034.

Frisco is located about 25 miles north of Dallas.

The signing of the memorandum follows the PGA of America's announced intent to move its headquarters to Frisco, Texas, which is considered to be a focal point of sports entertainment activity.
