Imagine being one of the most highest professional footballers in the world. The fame, the glamour and most of all...the money. Well, you could do anything you want couldn’t you? For one of the highest paid professional footballers in the game he had a dream that he can make a reality.
Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale, has just commissioned the greatest back garden ever! The self proclaimed golf nut has plans to turn the back garden of his Welsh home into the greatest mini golf course we can think of.
Taking three of the most iconic holes in golf, he will have the pleasure of practicing in his own back yard. Bale, who already has a 6 handicap, will replicate holes from Augusta, Royal Troon and Sawgrass. His choice of holes well...the Postage Stamp at Troon, the iconic 11th at Amen Corner and the 17th at Sawgrass.
To show just how serious he is about this project he has also scouted out some of the finest greenkeepers in South Wales to become his full time greenkeeper.
The former Spurs ace spoke about his love of Golf to the Daily Mirror where he said “I try to play as much golf as possible, In fact, I’m obsessed with it. I’ve not really thought about what I’ll be doing in 20 years when I’m retired from football, but, hopefully, I will be playing golf.”
Well with this in backyard Gareth...I have a sneeky feeling you’ll be doing just that when your footballing days are over. Oh how the other half live eh?
