A golf tale of two cities

The Dallas Morning News - - World -

Re: “Plenty of green se­cures PGA deal — $160M in in­cen­tives lands ‘Sil­i­con Val­ley of golf,’” Wed­nes­day news story.

The city of Dal­las in­vested $12 mil­lion into the de­vel­op­ment of Trin­ity For­est Golf Club in part, be­cause, they hope the new course will be a cat­a­lyst for the Grow South ini­tia­tive. How’s that work­ing for us?

In­stead, Frisco scores a cou­ple of holesin-one as the PGA plans to leave Florida and build its head­quar­ters along with a cou­ple of 18-hole premier cour­ses and a ho­tel. Dal­las has an elite club, a com­mit­ment to host the AT&T By­ron Nel­son Tour­na­ment and no ho­tel in the vicin­ity. Dal­las scores a boon­dog­gle dou­ble bo­gie! Con­grat­u­la­tions, Frisco!
