Gareth Bale golf course: A look at Tottenham star’s three-hole course in back garden

Gareth Bale re-signed for Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid before the tranfer deadline. The Welshman made his name at Spurs before joining the La Liga giants for £85million in 2013.

While Bale has established himself as one of the best players in the world, he has also expressed his love for the game of golf.

In 2018, works were completed for a three-hole course in the back garden of his home in Wales.

“I had a lovely bit of land here and it was something that I really wanted to do and I decided that I would love to make a dream come true and build a mini golf course in my house,” said Bale.

“I did my research online and I found Southwest Greens. I wanted to do a lot of low maintenaince.

Southwest Greens said in a statement: “Southwest Greens Construction successfully completed the construction of a 3 hole compact course in the private estate of Gareth Bale in Wales.

“The Real Madrid football star wanted 3 iconic golf holes ‘re-created’ on a plot within his estate.

“The 3 iconic holes built are all par 3 holes at the most famous golfing venues.

“They were TPC Sawgrass, hole 17, the famous island green, Royal Troon, hole 8, the ‘postage stamp’, and Augusta 12.

“The challenge in re-creating each hole was the existing terrain that we had to work with, allowing for the appropriate shaping and sculpting to best represent what each hole is all about.

“We worked with local UK architect James Edwards, and UK golf course shaper Mark Ely to complete the work.

“Projects like this are an example of what is possible with synthetics, and how, with a little imagination, beautiful things can be created with our product and skill set.”
