Elevated Experience and Private Indoor Golf Club Chips Shots Announces Head of Culinary Development

We have to be honest, we didn’t know exactly what a “Head of Culinary Development” was, but Chip Shots, the new membership-only indoor golf club set to open in Southwest Las Vegas in early 2024, is “delighted to introduce Chef Andrew Hunter as just that, the Head of Culinary Development. And we now know what that position entails, so like they say, you learn something new every day.

Chip Shots currently has a temporary office location where they offer a golf simulator and welcome interested members to set an appointment to hit a few shots and learn about the Chip Shots experience. Check out the official Chip Shots website for details or to set a meeting.

The all-inclusive club is scheduled to feature an elevated food and beverage program, indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces and state-of-the-art Full Swing virtual golf simulator technology.

Hunter also currently serves as the head of Culinary Development for Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, executive chef for Niman Ranch, Global Development Chef for Kikkoman, and the culinary innovation partner for The Mushroom Council.
