The Westgate Oxford development is due to open in less than five months and is to include a new food and leisure section called Westgate Social. Junkyard Golf will anchor the ground floor space which will also offers a food court area that includes brands such as Benito’s Hat, Rola Wala and Shawa Lebanese Grill, with more tenants set to be announced.
Junkyard Golf offers scrapyard-themed mini-golf and cocktails. Co-founder Chris Legh says, “We’re really excited to join Westgate Oxford, giving local residents a completely unique day and night out, that is on a par with our leading cities. We have a huge space to play with so we’re going to fit in three courses, with crazy installations, like the Nicholas Cage-themed Lions Den and Clown holes and some awesome bars. Look out for slides, cars, boats and of course the usual UV and jungle madness that has made our venues famous. Our mission in life is to keep making crazy golf epic.”
Emma Mees, senior portfolio manager at developer Landsec adds: “With Westgate Social, we aim to lead the charge for next generation retail destinations by bringing our scheme in line with the rapidly changing lifestyle habits of UK and global consumers. Junkyard Golf Club is an innovative brand that has responded to customers’ increasing demand for high quality and unique experiences. We’re excited to have them on board, along with the other six world-class retailers we have announced today.”
OBI Property advised Junkyard and Andrew Cowell from their Transactions and Asset Management team commented “It is fantastic for Junkyard Golf to be opening in Westgate. Landsecs are developing a great scheme and they recognised at an early stage that Junkyard would be a great addition to the Social as the Junkyard brand will attract a large number of visitors. We are also excited to be working with Junkyard Golf on their expansion through the UK”.
