Golf Fang is a new opening that’s combining all our favourite past times in one building- and it’s well worth the trip over to Sheffield.
Art, humour and nostalgia. They’re the three themes present at Golf Fang, the latest crazy golf course to grace Yorkshire with its presence.
The difference between this and any other gold course is the cleverly-themed-holes, live DJs and street food that’s available during your experience.
A huge 38,000 sq ft venue has been transformed in Sheffield into a creative collaborative space where street creators and local artists have come together to spend hundreds of hours covering every inch of the space in imaginative street art, with more than 3,000 cans of spray paint used to bring the venue to life.
It’s well worth the hour-long train journey over to South Yorkshire.
There’s 18 holes in total to get through whilst sipping on bespoke cocktails like ‘Nuthin’ But A G Ting’ or ‘Lethal Drizzle’.
Expect to see some familiar faces, like TV’s Jeremy Kyle on the course as well as some of Gold Fang’s best known holes like the Teddy Picker and Tunnel of Love.
Pinball machine-style holes, aeroplanes, The Simpsons, a nod to the movie rentals before Netflix and even a horror movie-inspired hole with the IT clown and Annabelle doll inside, each and every hole imitates a part of our history or clips from the creative arts in a truly realistic manner.
Golf Fang is part of the Big Fang Collective who already host venues across Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham and Glasgow, include Golf Fang, Ghetto Golf and Birdies Bar but Golf Fang Sheffield is the latest (and most exciting in our opinion) to be added to the collection.
Golf Fang’s co-founder, Kip Piper, said: “I usually say this about all of our venues but the Sheffield venue really is going to be our biggest and most spectacular venue yet.”
“Our aim is to raise the bar within the hospitality and leisure sector by changing the way the UK enjoys itself and we are excited to see how our guests will interact with this incredible space we have created in the heart of Sheffield. It’s been a huge labour of love for us“.
Once you’ve attempted eighteen hole-in-ones, there will be plenty of time to grab a drink from Big Fang’s tropical Birdies Bar or a bite to eat from one of the many street vendors inside the building.
The new opening is set to bring some of the biggest and best street food brands to the city, giving local food vendors from in and around Sheffield the opportunity to thrive in the multi-vendor food hall.
Having only just opened to the public, this crazy golf, drinking and dining experience is going to be around a one hour journey from Leeds city centre, but you can bet we’ll be making the trip over to our Yorkshire neighbours to sample all these is to offer.
For more information, including how to book your visit to the huge 18 hole course, visit the Golf Fang website or head over to John Street from Saturday 9 April to give it your best shot.
