PGA Tour to build stunning new headquarters designed by Foster and Partners

The home of golf gets a modern and minimalist new HQ in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, which reflects the natural design of the iconic 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.

 


 

Inspired by the serene surroundings of [Florida course] TPC Sawgrass, the three story, 187,000ft² modern and minimal building is said to echo the iconic Island Green 17th hole with a large freshwater lake reflecting the clean lines of its glazed façade.

Not only is the new headquarters built to reflect the landscape, the design itself signifies a modern era for the PGA.

“As we strive to reach an increasingly diverse, more global fanbase and position the PGA Tour for future success, we must be equipped to meet the ever-changing landscape in international business, media and technology,” said PGA Tour commissioner, Jay Monahan.

“Moving forward with this beautiful new global home in Ponte Vedra Beach will allow for more creative, efficient collaboration among our staff and partners, and will set us on the right path toward achieving our goals as an organization.”

Foster and Partners, one of the most well-known names in the architectural industry, has worked on a long list of iconic projects including London’s Wembley Stadium and Apple’s new US$5bn headquarters, Apple Park, in California, where elements of the open atriums and social spaces can also be seen here.

“Two building bays are connected by 20ft-wide bridges that encourage chance meetings, and allow for informal gatherings along the edges without impeding the flow of people,” says Foster and Partners.

Although it’s not built for golf spectators, fans of the sport will ultimately benefit from the PGA’s new home as it consolidates its staff who have outgrown its current facilities, and will allow for new ways of working and collaboration in response to changing audiences and media landscapes.

“As the global home of the PGA Tour, it brings the organization under one roof for the first time, and signifies the progressive spirit of the Tour,” said Nigel Dancey, head of studio, Foster and Partners.

Sustainability is also key to the project with a target to attain a LEED Gold rating. Photovoltaic panels will provide a portion of the building’s energy consumption, while a ‘biophilic’ design incorporates nature to enhance employee well-being.
