An indoor education center includes an indoor bunker, a golf education center with indoor/outdoor hitting bays and instructional technology designed to measure all elements of a golf swing. The facility includes a workshop for hands-on training in building and caring for golf clubs and equipment.

The facility also features educational spaces to train, certify and develop PGA Members. These spaces include classroom-style instruction across three career paths: executive management, teaching and coaching, and golf operations.

The headquarters has pending Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification, meaning the facility has a sustainable design and construction. The potential for LEED certification played a large part in the facility’s design.

Notable sustainable features include:

  • Water-efficient fixtures, which result in a 200,000-gallon reduction in water use compared to baseline measurements
  • More than 60 percent reduction in outdoor water use from the EPA baseline
  • The project recycled and reused over 75 percent of construction waste
  • The use of LED lighting, daylight harvesting, automatic dimming and light pollution reduction
