The makers of the popular UK chain Ghetto Golf have chosen Glasgow to launch their first-ever Big Fang Collective venue, which could change the culture of adult entertainment in the city.
As reported by Glasgow Live, the 18-hole crazy golf course is designed with the city's distinct culture in mind. Glasgow’s Golf Fang venue will also feature a miniature replica of the iconic Old College Bar.
Opening next month, this will mark the first project under the Big Fang Collective brand, which will bring classic aspects of the Ghetto Golf experience to Scotland, with a strong focus on street food, music and art.
At the new crazy golf venue, the Big Fang Collective will use Scottish food, creatives and artists within the venue as it prepares to expand the original Golf Fang offering that launches next month.
The venue will be based on Lancefield Street and its opening will be followed by Birdees Bar and Food Court and other places, such as one that will be based around a new interpretation of karaoke.
These will form the Big Fang Collective and the whole project is scheduled to be completed later this year. The 40,000-square-foot venue has a 400-person capacity and it will house the 18-hole crazy-golf style course.
"It's a staple of our venues that we honour a local pub that's well-known in the city," said Martin Hennigan, the Head of Production.
"For Glasgow, we selected the Old College Bar as we loved the story of how it claimed to be the oldest pub in the city, but really it wasn't. It's a bit cheeky and we can definitely relate to that."
"The Old College Bar was obviously a bit of an institution in Glasgow and was fondly viewed upon. We heard that it's shut permanently now which is a real shame, but we like to think it will raise a smile when people see our tribute on the course."
