Almost 80 jobs a step closer as plans in for new golf centre

An fast-growing group of indoor golf centres looks set to open its new Nottingham venue in a former supermarket in the city centre.

The Big Fang Collective had previously said that it was set to open a Golf Fang centre on Daleside Road, creating 78 jobs.

However, a change of heart appeared to be on the cards earlier this month when Big Fang Collective applied for premises licence to sell alcohol at the former Aldi unit on Glasshouse Street in the city.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the Big Fang Collective refused to confirm whether the company had changed its mind on the location for its Nottingham centre – however, a new planning application for Golf Fang signage at the former Aldi site has now been submitted.

The Big Fang Collective has set targets of securing a presence in every major UK city by 2025.

The first venue initially launched in Liverpool in 2016 as Ghetto Golf, and was then changed in 2022 to become Golf Fang following £5m investment from IMBIBA, a leisure, lifestyle and entertainment specialist.

Big Fang Collective recently introduced its newest concept Big Fang Karaoke, an “immersive karaoke destination” with its flagship venue set to launch in Liverpool later this month (29th September). In the last 12 months, Big Fang Collective has also used the investment to introduce the Golf Fang brand to new cities, with sites launching in Glasgow, Sheffield and Cardiff.
