Golfers looking to improve their game while avoiding the high Las Vegas Valley temperatures will soon have the option of joining a new indoor golf club, slated to open next year.
The members-only facility, dubbed “Chip Shots,” will be in a two-story, 13,000 square foot building inside the Grand Flamingo Center at West Flamingo Road and 215 Beltway.
The company wants to blur the lines between a traditional country club and a social club by offering fine dining options, bars and lounges, and outdoor entertainment spaces with designated cigar patios.
It will be the first Chip Shots location to open in the country, and founder Keith Langlands said he is looking to capitalize on the heightened interest in golf post-pandemic. Langlands is the Founder and Managing Member of Las Vegas-based Synergy Captive Strategies LLC, specializing in the captive insurance industry.
“We envisioned a more modern country club for today’s golfer to network and connect with other like-minded professionals,” Langlands said in an email to the Review-Journal.
The space, slated to open in the spring of 2023, will feature eight golf simulators equipped with 50 golf course maps capable of tracking the path of a golfer’s swing and ball. It will also have a virtual putting green. Chip Shots may also organize personal and corporate tournaments and events.
“Las Vegas is a renowned destination for both golf and world-class entertainment, so opening our flagship location here is the perfect fit,” Langlands said in a press release.
Chip Shots plans to limit membership to between 1,000 and 1,200. Pricing is still being determined, but membership fees will only cover golf equipment, according to Langlands. There will also be membership requirements such as being an “upright citizen” in the community and adhering to a dress code.
While Las Vegas will be Chip Shots’ first location, it won’t be the last. The company plans to expand into other markets with two sites planned for 2024 in Scottsdale, Arizona and Frisco, Texas.
Chip Shots membership should be national so that a member can use the services of any future Chip Shots location, according to Langlands.
