FRISCO, Texas – The Texas Golf Hall of Fame is pleased to publicize three exciting announcements that will significantly expand the footprint and reach of the organization.
First, The Texas Golf Hall of Fame will unveil a new physical structure in the fall of 2023 at PGA Frisco on the Northern Texas PGA’s campus. The Frisco anchor site will be an addition to the Texas Golf Hall of Fame’s footprint in the state, joining the Texas Golf Walk of Fame at Brackenridge Park Golf Course.
“The opportunity to have prominent presence on the Northern Texas PGA campus at PGA Frisco is an incredible addition to the Texas Golf Hall of Fame, and significantly helps us reach our goal to bring as much awareness as possible to the greatest golf hall of fame in the country,” said Katie Manor, Executive Director.
In addition, the Hall is thrilled to declare its new partnership with Veritex Community Bank – the Official Bank of the Texas Golf Hall of Fame and Presenting Sponsor of the future Texas Golf Hall of Fame anchor site at PGA Frisco.
Veritex’s commitment to golf in Texas is unparalleled and felt at all levels. It sponsors over 23 LPGA/PGA/Korn Ferry/Champions Tour players, including TGHoF Member Ryan Palmer and 2022 Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler. It is also the Title Sponsor of both the Veritex Bank Championship Korn Ferry Tour event and the historic Veritex Bank Byron Nelson Junior Championship.
“Veritex Community Bank is proud to partner with the Texas Golf Hall of Fame. Veritex Bank has a long line of golf ties – partnering with First Tee of Dallas to help foster interest in the sport with youth in the community, Northern Texas PGA, The Byron Nelson Junior, and several other opportunities that better the game of golf and our communities.
“We currently sponsor over 20 PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour, LPGA Tour, Champions Tour, PGA Tour Canada, and APGA Tour players. Golf has always been aligned with our brand, which is why this partnership made sense and we are known as the Golf Bank of Texas,” says Malcolm Holland, CEO & President of Veritex Community Bank.
Finally, both the Walk of Fame in San Antonio and PGA Frisco location will incorporate QR codes which will lead visitors to a one-of-a-kind interactive virtual museum highlighting individual members with his/her own digital exhibit and collection.
These exhibits will include a high-level film about the member as well as separate videos diving into specific details of the individual’s career. In addition, a comprehensive library of artifacts, photos, memorabilia, trophies, and articles will be made available in a digital archive.
“The entire history of Texas golf will be in the palm of your hand through this incredible platform and resource. It is a gift that the Texas Golf Hall of Fame is giving back to the game, to our great state, and to anyone who visits our virtual exhibits from anywhere in the world,” Manor added.
The Texas Golf Hall of Fame looks forward to celebrating and preserving the rich history of golf in Texas.
