The 600-acre, $520 million project will feature two championship courses, each designed by a leading golf architect.

Expectations are also growing for the Omni Resort to be on the property.

There will be over 500 rooms, restaurants and shops as well as indoor and outdoor meeting space.

In addition, there will be a short 10-hole course called the “swing” and a 75,000-square-foot course called the “dance floor.”

“We have the ability to offer golf to any level of people,” Terry said. “You don’t have to be the biggest, the fastest, the strongest.”

“It is a generational opportunity to develop American PGA talent,” said PGA America’s Senior Director of Education, Dawes Marlatt.

“We don’t just mean playing the game, but we also mean the golf industry’s two million workforce in this country…as well as increasing inclusion,” said Sandy Cross, PGA of America’s chief people officer.
