A LONG-awaited city centre mini golf venue has had its opening date delayed.

Mr Mulligans, on High Street, Worcester, is set to have its opening date pushed back by up to two weeks due to an unforeseen technical issue.

The venue previously shared it was due to open on August 1, with tickets officially able to book live on the website from August 5.

Mr Mulligans has been in the final stages of preparing the interior, ready for the public to visit, with its original opening date first teased for July.

The sports venue has proved a hit across its many locations - and also offers live music and a bar for older clients.

The venue will boast an adventure golf course, electro-darts, pool, ping pong and a shuffleboard - along with a bar and restaurant.

Mr Mulligans was handed a late-night alcohol licence by Worcester City Council earlier this year in March.

The new Mr Mulligans in Worcester, which will cater for families, students and adults, would add to the 12 locations already open across the country – including a spot in Birmingham.

The news of the venue coming to Worcester took the city by storm, with residents and visitors eagerly awaiting when they can head for a game.

The mini-golf venue will join Ask, Cosy Club and Five Guys as part of the Cathedral Square development.

We have contacted the parent company, Adventure Leisure and Ninja Leisure, for a comment on the new opening date.
