Following months of speculation, the PGA of America officially announced its headquarters are relocating to Frisco, Texas. The organization, currently based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., will anchor a 600-acre, mixed-use development.

“Our move to Frisco will be transcendent for the PGA of America,” Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America, said in a statement on Tuesday. “Everything great starts with a dream. This is the beginning of a bold, new journey as we bring together world-class partners in a world-class location—to deliver innovative and differentiated experiences for our nearly 29,000 PGA Golf Professionals, golfers of all abilities and our staff.”

As outlined in the initial reports, the new headquarters will have two championship courses. Under the PGA of America’s agreement with the Frisco City Council, the PGA will bring two PGA Championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships and, potentially, a Ryder Cup to the site. The golf course is expected to open in the summer of 2022.

Other parts of the development will feature a short course and practice area, a clubhouse, Class AA office space, a 500-room Omni resort and 127,000-square-foot conference center, a retail village and a park.

The PGA of America estimates the project will have an initial public-private $520 million investment. The PGA of America will invest $30 million to build its 100,000-square-foot global headquarters and education facility. Omni Stillwater Woods, a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital, is expected to pour in $455 million for land, construction, retail space and the golf courses.

The initial 25-year agreement calls for the land and conference center to be publicly owned by the City of Frisco and operated by OSW, which will pay $100,000 a year in rent to the city. The golf courses, clubhouse, practice areas and associated public facilities will be owned by the city, with the golf facilities open to local high school golfers.

No golfer’s words carry more heft than those of Nicklaus, evidenced in part by the gentle squeak with which he delivered them. Low volume and lilting with a touch of Oh-hi-oh, when the Bear talks, everybody listens. Here are 28 of his most enduring lessons.

Twenty majors if you count his two U.S. Amateurs, in stone the winner for all time. Champions great and small have sought his counsel in clubhouses and terraces across the world. Nicklaus started writing for Golf Digest in the early 1970s. What follows are some of his most enduring words that have appeared in our magazine across four decades. —Max Adler

Learn, practice and trust one basic swing. Most golfers, and especially those who begin the game as adults, pick it up and then continue to play by trial and error, rather than by formally learning one basic method.

  1. I’ve always believed the club should dominate you instead of you dominating the club.
  2. To me, winning by one is the same as winning by 10.
  3. Aim and alignment are by far the most important elements of the act of moving a golf ball from A to B. Rub the magic lamp, get the genie to give you any golf swing of your choice from history, and, if you don’t direct it correctly from the beginning, it still won’t reduce your present score by even one measly stroke.
  4. Even the gutsiest players learn they can’t try the hero shot all the time.
  5. You first have to see the trouble, then think positively about playing away from it. Some players might say they just “let it happen.” Well, you don’t ever just let it happen.
  6. I hold the club fairly loosely, but just before starting back, I press my hands together on the grip once or twice. I call this a “stationary press.”
  7. The harder I want to hit a shot, the slower I try to begin the swing.
  8. The fuller your backswing, the longer it takes to execute, which can help your tempo. Longer swingers, I’ve noticed, usually enjoy longer-lasting careers.
  9. I believe the Ryder Cup is an exhibition by some of the best golfers in the world, great entertainment and an exercise in sportsmanship, camaraderie and goodwill. The individual performances, good or bad, don’t determine who the best players in the world are. Nor does the side that happens to win determine on what side of the Atlantic the best golf is played. Too many people believe otherwise, and that helps make the matches too contentious among the teams and their fans.
  10. One of my lifelong checkpoints is to keep the shaft between my arms throughout the swing.
  11. Practice hitting as fully as you can without letting either heel lift at any point in the swing. This will teach you the proper way to shift weight by rolling your ankles, but most of all it will teach you the feeling of staying “centered.”
  12. I believe it’s impossible for me to hit too soon with the clubhead. When I need a through-swing thought, it’s most often, Release! Use the clubhead!
  13. Although I have great affection for the Masters, as far as pure golf I’d rather play in the British Open than any other event.
  14. Patience was always my strength. When a player says a course doesn’t suit him, he’s half beaten right there.
  15. On most courses, there are only five or six shots where you really need to pay attention and play conservative.
  16. When I putt, I hold my breath just before initiating the stroke to keep my head and body still.
  17. I visualize the putter shaft as being extremely limber, almost as flexible as a length of rope, which means the only way I can get the clubhead to swing truly is to stroke putts very softly.
  18. I know I have to make the putt. There is no alternative. It has to go in. That was my focus.
  19. I always like to have a couple of short 4s on my courses. They create variety and make the golfer think.
  20. With so much money in the pro game, conservative mediocrity sort of prevails. The goal is to make a good living more than it is to win. Yes, there’s a lot of depth in the pro game. If you took a large group of today’s players and put them against the group from my prime, today’s group would probably beat their brains out. But I think our four or five top guys, as a group, would have beaten the brains out of the players of today.
  21. It’s not that I wouldn’t get nervous, but I could always think straight under pressure. I know some people tend to go blank.
  22. On a second-shot course, you use the tee shot to truly create your second. This type of design happens to be my favorite.
  23. If you start with the club grounded, the natural tendency is for it to return to that spot at impact. In other words, you’re pre-setting a fat shot.
  24. I shot my age for the first time at 64 in Hawaii.
  25. I never hit a shot, even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. It’s like a color movie.
  26. The key to playing well is to first understand who you are as a person, and then manage that.
  27. I’m finding now, more than ever, that the game of a lifetime can give you the time of your life without ever striking a shot.
  28. I know I have to make the putt. There is no alternative. It has to go in.
