PGA Frisco Resort selected NorthBridge bermudagrass from Sod Solutions to cover 180 acres, including the courses and practice facility at the new PGA headquarters in Frisco, Texas.

Bryce Yates, PGA Frisco’s managing superintendent of golf and grounds, explained that the course needed to select a grass that would hold up to winter temperatures, heavy traffic and have a good spring green-up.

“We were looking for something that gave us the option to overseed if we ever wanted to have that ability,” Yates said. “We had a few varieties in mind and based on some of the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program data and talking to some local superintendents, we ultimately selected NorthBridge specifically for those three qualities.”

PGA will host about two championships every year. It already held the Senior PGA Championship in May and will host the Women’s PGA Championship in 2025 and the PGA Championship in 2027.
