FRISCO, TX and PURCHASE, NY – July 17, 2023 – Spanning 660 acres of wide-open landscape, the Omni PGA Frisco Resort offers a reimagined destination resort experience for the ultimate getaway. Alongside excellent hospitality, entertainment, retail, and wellness, the beacon luxury destination is about to become one of the most technologically advanced, thanks to a partnership between Omni Resorts, the PGA of America, and experience design and execution company ANC. Newly opened this spring, the Omni PGA Frisco Resort introduces a new kind of golf experience above The Dance Floor Event Lawn LED video display to feature additional programming and live entertainment.
“Our state-of-the-art video board is an amazing visual experience that will really take our heavily programmed Monument Realty PGA District to the next level,” said Jeff Smith, Vice President and Managing Director for the property. “Omni PGA Frisco Resort is an ambitious, unparalleled new resort concept that puts the latest digital technology in the forefront to ensure a unique, service-driven visitor and guest experience across the property.”
Co-designed by industry-recognized golf course designers Gil Hanse and Beau Welling, the lighted 2-acre natural grass putting course, The Dance Floor, creates an inviting space for Pros and players of all levels with its innovative, approachable multi-purpose space. The adjoining Dance Floor Event Lawn allows for events and programming, which is a hub of regular activity for groups and public events.
The Dance Floor Event Lawn features a 6mm Outdoor display, integrated by ANC, that is 26 feet by 40 feet with a high pixel resolution of 1,320 x 2,000. The edge-to-edge level of detail offered in the showcased video board will provide visitors with an engaging, cutting-edge, yet inclusive golf experience full of crisp details, no matter the viewing angle, including a comprehensive, integrated audio experience.
“Omni Hotels continues to innovate and push the boundaries of what enhances the PGA golf experience, and the Omni PGA Frisco Resort is the definition of a destination experience for elite Golfers and non-golfers alike,” said Jerry Cifarelli Jr, ANC CEO. “We couldn’t be more proud to continue to support their leadership in creating an unparalleled experience every day of the year with this new resort.”
Endless opportunities for content, a lively atmosphere for guests, and for everyday events driven by ANC’s LiveSync content management system. The LiveSync software system allows 24/7 content scheduling, live video feeds, and touch-of-a-button takeovers for endless dynamic content experiences. The 2023 installation at PGA Frisco begins a multi-year partnership with ANC and Omni Resorts in providing the LED video, display control system technologies and onscreen luxury graphics package designed in collaboration with ANC Studios’ designers, ensuring that the digital media delivers dynamic visuals alongside exclusive sponsors and golf-driven action.
