Birmingham-headquartered Brasfield & Gorrie recently celebrated the opening of the Omni PGA Frisco Resort in Texas.

The $520 million resort sprawls across 660 acres in Frisco, offering guests golf, dining, shopping, entertainment and more.

“This first-of-its-kind resort marks an exciting milestone for Omni Hotels & Resorts,” said Jeff Smith, vice president and managing director, Omni PGA Frisco Resort.

Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor on the project, which includes 500 guest rooms and suites, 13 restaurant and bar concepts, the Mokara Spa, four pools, retail, 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space and 10 four-bedroom ranch houses.

“Completing this project ahead of schedule was particularly significant because the construction team overcame numerous challenges — including supply chain delays, a difficult labor market and weather delays,” said Jason Weeks, regional vice president and division manager for Brasfield & Gorrie.

The resort sports two championship golf courses designed by architects Gil Hanse and Beau Welling. There also is a lighted, 10-hole short course and two-acre putting course, as well as a Lounge by Topgolf, PGA Coaching Center, Ice House restaurant and hitting bays.

“Omni PGA Frisco Resort really embodies where we are going as a brand and how we can meet all of the needs of our guests,” said Kurt Alexander, Omni Hotels & Resorts president.

Weeks said, “Omni’s vision and commitment to the project resulted in plenty of demand for the resort, and the construction team embodied the same fighting spirit that Omni exhibited by committing to this project and its timeline during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
