Inside Gareth Bale’s stunning back garden golf course based on legendary holes

GARETH BALE knows exactly what Rory McIlroy will be going through at The Masters next month – as he has one of the holes in his garden.

The Real Madrid ace’s stunning Welsh estate has a mini golf course, which he has been carefully sculpting since last year.

His chosen three holes were the the 12th at Augusta, Royal Troon’s Postage Stamp and the tricky par-three 17th at Sawgrass.

Bale, 28, said: “As I moved here I had a lovely bit of land here and I had something I really wanted to do with it and decided that I would love to make a dream come true and build a mini golf course in my house.

“From a plain piece of land to build what we now it was a lot of hard work and a lot of craftsmanship.

“It’s a lot better than I ever thought it could be and I’m just so happy I’ve got it here now and so happy that I chose Southwest Greens.”

In 2015, keen golfer Bale helped Wales beat England, Ireland and Scotland in the Celebrity Cup at Celtic Manor.

He added: “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.”

Bale is expected to play against China tomorrow as Ryan Giggs takes charge of his first game as Wales boss.
