First Discovery Adventure Golf to open at St David’s

Published:  25 November, 2014

Discovery Adventure Golf is to open its first venture at St David’s shopping centre in Cardiff next Easter. 

Discovery Adventure Golf - a new concept by ex-Goldman Sachs entrepreneur Elizabeth Perrin and experienced leisure operator Chris Richards - has signed a 25 year lease and secured planning permission for its 14,995 sq ft operation, which sits above Monsoon and Bose at the John Lewis end of the scheme.

Elizabeth Perrin, co-founder and CEO of Discovery Adventure Golf, said: “Indoor adventure golf continues to grow in popularity – it is a fantastically inclusive activity with broad age range and demographic appeal providing entertainment whatever the weather. Our first venture in Cardiff, named TreeTop Adventure Golf, will offer superior quality and excellent customer service. Think rope walkways, talking trees, ancient settlements, jungle sound effects and a treehouse bar and cafe that all come together to provide an Amazon rainforest experience. This is a destination venue and we are incredibly excited to be opening at St David’s, right in the heart of Cardiff.”

Julian Wilkinson, regional director of intu on behalf of the St David’s Partnership said: “Indoor adventure golf is a proven footfall driver and we are delighted to have attracted what will be the best operator in the business. There is a dynamic team behind this concept and we’re sure St David’s will be the first of many Discovery Adventure Golf experiences across the country. It will bring new visitors to the centre and complement our existing retail and F&B offer.”

St David’s Partnership is advised by JLL and Cushman & Wakefield. Discovery Adventure Golf is advised by Brasier Freeth.
