Tottenham has apparently created golf holes just for star Gareth Bale
World-famous footballer Gareth Bale is a golf sicko. He’s absolutely obsessed. We love that and can’t blame him at all.
His obsession with the game has come under scrutiny in past years as his recreational play has flourished while his professional play fluctuated. But that criticism doesn’t exist anymore. Not with Bale at Tottenham. The Welshman is playing on loan with the Premier League club, and according to one teammate, he’s as happy as he’s ever been, largely due to golf.
Sergio Reguilon spoke with Cadenaser, a Spanish radio network, and said that the club has created golf holes on property at the training center. The main reason? Bale’s existence, it seems. Region says Bale seems very happy and is being encouraged by the club to get his golf in.

“What most surprised me is at Spurs’ training ground there are golf holes,” Reguilon said. “I asked about it and they told me they were put there for him! They’re short holes, maybe 30 metres. I couldn’t believe it!”
Sounds like a delightful short-game facility Tottenham have had installed. If it’s anything like the replica short holes he’s had built at his house, he’s gonna be in great shape. We scoured the internet for photos of the short game area, but haven’t found any just yet. Tottenham has only shared a video of their basketball setup, with Bale stroking a jump shot.
Will we see him smooth a wedge in tight? It feels like only a matter of time.
