New thread for any examples of how people spend their excess money. It does not have to be golf related hence in the Lounge.

 

Gareth Bale, a Welsh soccer player who stars for the powerhouse club Real Madrid who loves to play golf in his free time, is creating the greatest backyard golf setup in the world.

 

Two years ago he announced his plan to build replicas of famous golf holes, and last year he signed a monster contract that pays him £18 million per year (a little more than $21 million USD). Recently he unveiled to The Sun, a British newspaper, the first addition to his backyard playground: a replica of TPC Sawgrass’s island 17thhole. 

 

He also plans to build replicas of Royal Troon’s short par-3 Postage Stamp and Augusta National’s demanding par-4 11th hole.  Attached File  tpc.png   390.58KB   0 downloads

I'm tempted to post Secondary School fees for a couple of my boys but I'll give them another year before I put it down as money I burned :D

Of course but without the bed and breakfast. There will be an entry fee and cleanskins will not cut it. Just work around Chateau Neuf du Pape as the base standard.

Btw Barnesy, I'd keep the Lamborghini in the garage till the plod has been and gone.

VicPol are a bit keen on dodgy jewellers currently. Especially the ones with Sudanese nephews.

No.
If I can't pronounce it it stays at the super market.

Money down the drain... the case when there is a lot of money, and you do not know how to spend it.
