VIDEO – Watch how this mini golfer grew thanks to his business caddie

Updated: 11 August 2020

With its unique decor, delicious cocktails and amazing atmosphere, Lost City Adventure Golf is not your typical mini golf venue. Like Barry, the co-founder, the place is made to do more.

Located in the centre of Nottingham, this indoor mini golf business has got it all. Exceptional premises, friendly staff and two amazing cocktail bars with lots of seating space to enjoy a drink with friends.

This is exactly the vision Barry had for his business when he launched Lost City Adventure Golf in 2013. However, like many other small businesses, the journey to get where it is today was far from easy. After long hours, hard work and some careful consideration, Barry knew that funding was needed to take his business to the next level.

Looking for finance is always an important decision for any business owners. As well as looking into all the different options, the pressure of making the right decision for the business can be overwhelming.

So he could focus on running his business, Barry chose to avoid stressing about this dilemma and approached Steve at Central Finance. Steve helped him weigh his options, and they decided that a Funding Circle loan was the best choice for Lost City Adventure Golf. Barry could then get on with what he does best – driving his business forward.

Our relationship with commercial finance brokerages like Central Finance have helped thousands of small businesses access the funding they needed to grow. As a Funding Circle Business Champion, Steve was able to quickly complete the whole application on Barry’s behalf, with approval in 24 hours.
