ABOUT GOLF FANG NEWCASTLE

Golf Fang is an ode to Street Art, its Writers, and its Origins

Our concept combines seriously crazy golf, cocktails, DJ’s and Street Food in an art infused environment that showcases the very best street art, its writers and its culture. We always love to remind people……

Crazy Golf does happen, but we’re about so much more than just golf!

Golf Fang is a ‘Sprayground’ and we provide the Graff Writers with golf courses built into weird and wonderful designs such as buses, shop fronts, film studios and pubs… the list is endless and nothing is off limits.

Our venues require a minimum of 12,000 sq ft of space for collective and creative freedom. This provides our guests with an exciting collaboration of productions that inspire and hopefully change negative opinions about the art form (it’s also boss for Instagram!).

It allows Authentic Street Writers to express themselves without damaging property or getting into trouble with authorities. We combine each Street Artists work with tailored lighting and exciting scenery. Golf Fang is a mind-blowing explosion of colour and weirdness. We love what we do and we have an amazing production team and workshop where our visions come to life!

Golf Fang has had hundreds of authentic street artists from all over the world express themselves on our walls and back drops.

When you see Street Art, do you know its Origins?

In the 1960’s Darryl McCray better known as ‘Cornbread’ began writing on street and subway walls in Philadelphia leaving messages for a girl he was pursuing and trying to impress. Cornbread would simply write ‘Cornbread loves Cynthia’!

This led to others writing their ‘tag names’ on walls. Eventually using the cheapest materials possible (paint and a brush), artists began to compose creative pieces on any and all available space the city had to offer, be it legal or not!! (the brushes were later swapped for spray cans). The craze spread like wild fire and that was it, Street Art as we know it today was born.

These pioneers inspired what has developed into a worldwide culture of recognised artistry……from Writers who were desperate to be heard.
Street art is considered one of our Golf Fang pillars alongside DJs, street food, cocktails and seriously crazy golf. We play eclectic music in our venues which adds to our authentic Street Art experience.

Our Ethos

Golf Fang is a company that provides guests with positive interaction with Street Art and its culture. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and have a naughty sense of humour.

We consider ourselves a Graffiti Cathedral combined with a seriously twisted crazy golf course and cocktail bar.

If you read all of that, fair play and hopefully you’ll understand more about us and our love of Creativity, Culture, Street Art and Crazy Golf.
