A strange but accurate quote from PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh at the PGA Frisco groundbreaking regarding how the game has evolved.
From Art Stricklin’s report on the groundbreaking of the Silicon Valley of golf:
“This project is to benefit the 29,000 (members), it’s certainly not for me,” Waugh said.
“Over the last 25 years, we’ve done a lot of try to kill golf. We’ve made it too hard, too expensive and taking too long. The one thing we haven’t done is make it too fun. This project is a chance to push back on that.”
The organization has already announced 23 national championships at the site which is scheduled to open for play in early 2022 and include PGA Championships in 2027 and 2034 and likely a Ryder Cup after that.
“We feel this will be the modern home of American golf,” Crall said at the groundbreaking.
Therefore the operative word with Frisco’s 36 holes will be fun.
