Glasgow’s hospitality and entertainment landscape is set to be transformed by the emergence of the inaugural Big Fang Collective venue which has been designed to pay homage to the city’s iconic culture and renowned entertainment scene.

The city has been handpicked as the ideal location for an experience like no other, which is being driven by the creators of Ghetto Golf; a popular adult-only entertainment chain south of the border. Glasgow’s Golf Fang venue will mark the first venture under the new Big Fang Collective brand which will bring some of the most recognisable aspects of the Ghetto Golf experience to Scotland, with a major focus on street food, music and art.

The Big Fang Collective will incorporate Scottish food, creatives and artists in the continuing development of the venue as it expands from the initial Golf Fang offering that launches next month. The July opening of the Golf Fang venue, based on Lancefield Street in the city centre will be followed by Birdees Bar and Food Court, and other venues including a unique twist on karaoke, to form the Big Fang Collective, scheduled to be introduced later in the year.

The mammoth 40,000-square-foot venue has a 400-person capacity and will encompass an 18-hole crazy-golf style course, which has been designed with a distinct Glaswegian twist. A host of the city’s top street artists have also been recruited by the Big Fang Collective to ensure that the attraction has a unique feel which reflects Glasgow’s infamous culture.

Across the course, players will putt on a range of instantly recognisable themed holes including the Old College Bar which has become a symbol of the city having been widely regarded as one of the oldest public houses in town. The pub’s legacy will now live on through the miniature replica that players will pass through as part of the urban golf course.

Martin Hennigan, Head of Production, who is currently working on the installation of the new venue, said: “It’s a staple of our venues that we honour a local pub that’s well-known in the city. 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.”


The venue, which is the first of its kind in Scotland, will include 18 eye-catching holes, including a giant hamster cage and a bouncy castle with full details to be revealed in advance of opening.

Billed as one of the most ‘Instagrammable’ settings in the city, the new venue has been decorated in traditional Ghetto Golf style, with graffiti, street art and neon lighting ready to light up guests’ social media feeds.
