YOU can bet Gareth Bale had his eyes on The Open this weekend. The Real Madrid forward, who is said to have agreed a £1m-per-week offer to play his football in China, loves golf so much he had a three-hole course made in the garden of his Wales mansion. Gareth Bale is golf-obsessed and has his own golf course in his home Real Madrid star Bale is expected to leave the club, according to reports Former Spurs star Bale, 30, who leads an incredibly private life in Spain, has rented the home of Brazil legend Kaka for the past six years he’s spent at the La Liga giants. There, he’s filled the lavish property’s garage with some of the world’s most stunning motors, and lives with his gorgeous childhood sweetheart Emma Rhys-Jones and their brood. If that’s not enough, with his whopping salary he bought his own bar in Cardiff – despite being completely teetotal. And, trousering around £600k-per-week with Los Blancos, Bale certainly lives like a king. HE’S GOLF-OBSESSED Normally, footballers love to play golf AFTER they’ve hung up their boots. But Bale just can’t get enough of the sport, spending most of his free time on the golf course working on his handicap – which is currently an impressive five. [quote credit=”Gareth Bale”]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.”[/quote] In 2018, work was completed on building a three-hole golf course in his estate in Wales that amazingly features copies of real holes. His chosen three holes were the the 12th at Augusta, Royal Troon’s Postage Stamp and the tricky par-three 17th at Sawgrass. Bale’s love of golf earned him the nickname “The Golfer” from his Real Madrid teammates Incredibly, Bale plays off a handicap of five Bale built a three-hole golf course at his Wales estate that has copies of real holes on the PGA Tour Bale, nicknamed “The Golfer” by his teammates, once revealed: “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.” When he’s back in Spain, Bale loves to take a holiday in Marbella at the five-star Finca Cortesin that not only boasts two outdoor pools and a private beach club with infinity pool, restaurant and bar, but also a stunning 18-hole golf course. Rooms start at around £900-per-night during peak season, which is easy on the wallet for Bale. NO HOLDS BAR-RED In 2017, with cash to spend on investments that will last him for a life after football, Bale launched a bar. Eleven’s Bar & Grill in Cardiff even has its on special ale named after the Wales star uninventively called ‘Bale’s Ale’. “It’s been a dream of mine to open a sports bar in my home town of Cardiff,” Bale writes on the menu. “Together with Brains (Brewery) we have created something very special and unique: a premium sports bar and grill in the heart of Cardiff.” The standout food item on the menu is the Eleven’s Burger – that comes with smoked bacon, smashed avocado, Swiss cheese, tomato jam and chimichurri. And even visitors in TripAdvisor have given their thumbs-up to the Eleven’s Bar & Grill experience.

HIS CHILDHOOD SWEETHEART Gareth lives in Madrid with his childhood sweetheart, Emma Rhys-Jones. The couple began dating in the early 2000s while attending Whitchurch High School. They got engaged in July 2016 and Gareth announced the news on social media posting: “She said yes!! This is a birthday weekend I won’t forget for a long time…” But their love has had its difficulties. Emma and Gareth were due to get married last year, but an on-going feud with her family put plans on ice. Her dad Martin, 54, was released from prison in June after being imprisoned for fraud for six months in the US. But Emma banned him from the wedding after he moved in with a florist half his age, Alina Baranova.  Other members of her family including her aunt Jane Burns, 55, have been embroiled in a violent drugs feud. Bale has dated Emma Rhys-Jones since they met at school Bale popped the question in 2016 and the pair reportedly married this summer An on-going feud with Bale and Rhys-Jones’ family originally delayed their wedding But Bale and Emma secretly married in a hush-hush ceremony earlier this month at a five-star hotel on a Majorcan island in front of just 60 guests, according to reports. Guests were told of the location only 24-hours before the big day, and had to hand in their mobile phones to security guards. The couple also have three children, daughters Alba and Nava, as well as a son called Axel. HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS Ever since he signed for Los Blancos, the one-time most expensive player in the world has rented the home of Brazilian legend Kaka for a massive £10k-per-month. Found in the exclusive Pozuelo de Alarcón part of La Finca, where a host of Real Madrid stars live, the 1,500 square metre property is built on two-storeys, and is valued at around £6.5m. It boasts four bedrooms, an indoor pool, gym, two utility rooms, several terraces and porches, as well as a six-car garage.
