A 30-year veteran of the hospitality industry, Fisher has overseen high-volume, event-driven operations in Kansas City, Chicago, and Cincinnati. Fisher comes to T-Shotz from Houlihan's and Yard House Restaurants where he had served as the director of operations since 2016.

“I’m excited to be a part of T-Shotz from the very beginning,” said Fisher. “T-Shotz is going to be so much more than golf. When we open, guests should expect to enjoy incredible food and beverage plus outstanding service amidst a fun and vibrant atmosphere.”

T-Shotz will feature 66 climate-controlled, technology-enhanced hitting bays and suites on three levels where guests can eat, drink and socialize while overlooking the expansive 200-yard green-turfed target range. Designed for all ages and skill levels, the new venue will differ from other golf entertainment complexes in a variety of ways, including:
· Guests can “play” several famous golf courses, play unique golf games and compete on target golf games from their hitting bay as their golf shots are projected to both a high-definition monitor and television displaying games, courses or targets.
· Experienced golfers will enjoy TrackMan golf ball tracking technology, the same performance enhancing technology used by many club professionals and Tour Pros.
· T-Shotz will include two restaurant/bar venues. Both restaurants will offer local farm-to-market comfort food and shareables, with the top-level venue, The Raw Bar, having fresh seafood, an oyster bar and lounge area.
· More than 120 LED high-definition televisions will broadcast sports programming, making T-Shotz the hub for sports and entertainment viewing in the Metro.
· T-Shotz will offer dedicated special event and private event spaces for small to larger groups for corporate outings, tournaments, fundraisers, kids and teen parties and more.
