Stamford, Connecticut — The Club at Carlton Woods, The Woodlands, Texas, has earned the rigorous Golf Kitchen Certification of Culinary Excellence. Wes Tyler, Executive Chef, and General Manager / Chief Operating Officer Steve Salzman received the new tapestry plaque designed by Souza Enterprises this month.
"Wes Tyler, 34, and his culinary team at The Club at Carlton Woods have proven how well a young team can develop effective strategies to fulfill the desires of the membership and guests at the club," said Diana DeLucia, President of Golf Kitchen.
The Club at Carlton Woods is very proud of its short history and is humbled by its accolades. Since 2013, The Club at Carlton Woods has been honored with receiving the Distinguished Club of the World recognition. In 2016, The Club was recognized as a Platinum Club of America, as voted on by General Managers and Club Presidents across the United States, and now the Golf Kitchen Certification of Culinary Excellence. The club was recently announced as the 2023-2027 location for The Chevron Championship, the 1st LPGA Major Championship each season.
"Our team at The Club at Carlton Woods is humbled and honored to receive this outstanding award and certification of Culinary Excellence from the Golf Kitchen Organization. We are thankful to be a part of the process and will continue to help set the standard for club kitchens across the nation," stated Wes Tyler.
The Golf Kitchen Certification of Culinary Excellence is based on a rigid set of criteria and a club's ability to produce an exemplary product, as evaluated by an independent review of the entire food and beverage operation. As part of the process, clubs must apply to be considered for certification, followed by an on-site evaluation and a series of interviews with the culinary team and management.
DeLucia believes that club dining rooms will become the "go-to" restaurants of the future, an observation made even more likely in the era of COVID. "With more younger people coming back to private clubs, in particular younger couples and families joining clubs and moving into golf communities, a club's culinary offerings are increasingly important," she said.
