Chip Shots announced last month that it would open an indoor golf club next year in the Las Vegas Valley, and now the members-only club is accepting applications.
The company said Wednesday it would accept an initial batch of 500 members starting Nov. 15 and plans to cap membership at 1,000 by spring 2023.
“By limiting our membership places to 1,000, we maintain the exclusivity of a traditional golf club while bringing a new wave to the country club experience through our innovative technology and luxury amenities,” said Chip Shots founder Keith Langlands in a press release.
Applicants can expect to pay a one-time initiation fee ranging from $7,500 to $10,000, depending on whether the applicant is an individual, family, or business. Average monthly membership fees will be $352 with food and beverage minimums of $1,000 per year. Premium beverage lockers can also be reserved for an additional $250 per month.
“(This initiation fee) ensures commitment to the club and that equipment, such as golf simulators, remains state-of-the-art technology for members,” Langlands said in an email.
Chip Shots’ initiation fees appear to be on par with traditional Las Vegas country clubs. The Spanish Trail Country Club stated on its website that it had an initiation fee of $500 to $10,000 while the Red Rock Country Club reported initiation fees ranging from $10,000 to $35,000 .
Last month, Chip Shots announced it would open a two-story, 13,000 square foot facility inside the Grand Flamingo Center at West Flamingo Road and 215 Beltway. The facility is expected to feature eight golf simulators and a virtual putting green, two bars and cigar patios.
Chip Shots said Las Vegas marks its first location, but plans to expand with locations in Scottsdale, Arizona and Frisco, Texas. Memberships will be valid at each Chip Shots location, meaning Las Vegas members will have access to future Chip Shots facilities in Arizona and Texas.
