PLONK GOLF LTD.
Plonk Golf was founded in 2014 by a troop of set designers hailing from the film industry. With ambitions to make crazy golf an accessible and regular past time, they have now had over half a million players, with regular appearances in the press. Designing, installing and managing all of their own venues, they now boast eight popular, fantastical crazy golf creations across the capital. With funds raised, they will secure their ninth venue in London as they continue to grow.
Putting paradises for a plonking good time
We don’t just manage our own venues, we also work in collaboration with other brands and businesses. You can find us working with major tourist attractions such as ZSL London Zoo and The Horniman Museum and Gardens, bringing our signature nine-hole courses to award-winning venues or creating custom pop-ups for special events. Big or small, themed or branded, our esteemed in-house design team always have their pencils sharpened, ready to design the Perfect Plonk Course.
Paired with our strong branding, the past five years have seen us setting up venues all over the capital, as activity-based entertainment becomes increasingly popular. From one-off events to permanent installations, we’re always pushing ourselves further, continually offering new and better minigolf adventures to all of our fellow Plonkers. With the funds raised, we will be securing our ninth permanent venue and bar, as we continue to expand across London.

A. Hi Adam. Thank you for your question. We always make payment on our loans on time. We unfortunately have had a misunderstanding with a landlord who lost our deposit and put a Bailiff onto us. It was all resolved immediately and we are looking to remove the bad marks presently.
A. Once we build a course we have very very low overheads. Currently our venues run on a 60/70% margin. In 2019 we changed how we work by opening our own venues to sites on longer leases so we have not had to move sites. Regards, Elliot
A. Unfortunately the nature of crowd funding and the short periods of time we were in different regions for, did not help to raise funds. People did not know if they would be available to come etc. Instead we took the rig to Dreamland Theme Park in Margate, Kent for the summer as a long pop up.
A. We often move our venues to better spaces. Our product is modular and as a destination business we can easily move and set up shop elsewhere. We have been offered a large space, fully licensed, where we know our sales will be greatly improved on. We also have spare stock in storage which means we do not need to build another course. The majority of the money raised is needed for the deposit, with the remainder for bar fit out costs and marketing.
A. Hi Michael,
Our lease at the Zoo is a short term pop up. Our other indoor venues (which generate the majority of our income) are on longer leases.
