The 600-acre, $ 520 million project will include two championship courses, each designed by a leading golf architect.

Both courses are expected to open in spring 2023.

“Twenty-six of our championships in the first twelve years, six of them televised major championships, that’s what really gets people excited,” said Terry.

The anticipation for the Omni-Resort, which will be located on the property, is also increasing.

There will be more than 500 guest rooms, restaurants and shops, as well as indoor and outdoor meeting rooms.

There will also be a 10-hole short course called “The Swing” and a 75,000 square meter putting course called “Dance Floor”.

“We have the ability to bring the game of golf to all levels of people,” said Terry. “You don’t have to be the tallest, the fastest, the strongest.”

“It is a cross-generational opportunity to develop the talents of the PGA of America,” said Dawes Marlatt, PGA of America’s senior director of education.

“Not only do we mean playing the game, we mean the two million people in the golf industry in this country and increasing inclusion,” said Sandy Cross, PGA of America’s chief people officer.
