Fields Ranch Celebrates May 2 Opening of Play with Ceremonial Tee Shot
Highly Anticipated ‘New Home of Modern Golf’ Set to Host Marquee Championships for Years to Come
(FRISCO, Texas) – Fields Ranch – PGA Frisco’s showcase championship golf courses at the new home of modern golf – will open for play beginning on May 2 (Tuesday) with the availability of tee times for local residents to have the opportunity to play the exceptional 36-hole facility designed by famed golf course architects Gil Hanse and Beau Welling.
The Welling-designed Fields Ranch West is accepting tee times for May 2 onwards. The Hanse-designed Fields Ranch East will accept tee times for May 30 onwards after the conclusion of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship (May 24 – 28).
Fields Ranch East sits softly on the land and draws its design style and cues from the surrounding landscape. It combines the best of the property’s natural qualities with a thoughtful approach to strategic design. Upon opening to the public, it will play host to 26 additional championships scheduled through 2034, including two PGA Championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships and two KitchenAid Senior PGA Championships.
Fields Ranch West rambles along Panther Creek amid a prairie setting punctuated by majestic live oaks and mesquite trees. Welling took full advantage of the site’s natural beauty to create a golf course that is not only picturesque, but a family-friendly experience and championship-caliber test.
“Fields Ranch opening will mark the beginning of a new era in championship golf in North America and we are so proud to launch this unprecedented golf and entertainment destination,” says Paul Earnest, Director of Golf and Operations at Fields Ranch at PGA Frisco. “What Gil Hanse and Beau Welling have created here will test the world’s best golfers as well as providing memories of a lifetime for players of all skill levels for decades to come.”
Omni PGA Frisco Resort will also be showcasing the opening of “The Swing,” a lighted, 10-hole, par-3 short course, as well as “The Dance Floor,” a two-acre putting course. Both are designed by Hanse and Welling. The Swing presents a fun complement to the golf offerings with holes ranging from 45 to 100 yards. The Dance Floor is considered to be one of the largest natural-grass putting courses in the world. It offers the chance to not only practice putting, but also enjoy a laid back atmosphere for golfers and non-golfers alike while navigating three unique 18-hole layouts and a casual putt-around area.
“No matter what you are looking for in a golf trip, Omni PGA Frisco Resort has all the aspects and amenities to provide a world-class experience for every guest,” says Jeff Smith, VP and Managing Director of Omni PGA Frisco Resort. “In partnership with the PGA of America, we look forward to being one of the most sought-after golf destinations in the world.”
