The first of his Par 59 venues opened in his home city Cardiff — and features a booze stop at every hole for players.

Residents 40 miles away in Bristol objected to a second one, raising concerns that it would encourage drinking and anti-social behaviour.

But ex-Real Madrid star Gareth got the go-ahead after agreeing to cut its opening hours.

Its website has began taking bookings for early December, with two nine-hole courses and four interactive dart boards.

The venue promises to “bring the competitive world of mini golf to Bristol’s Harbourside!”.

Its website says that “it will be home to a premium bar, exceptional food from independent kitchen, Dirty Birdie, with plenty of space for casual dining and socialising”.

The Par 59 team says that it will be “the perfect spot for friends, family and work colleagues alike”.

Despite their statement, the new venue will be over-18s only.
