Players have admitted wayward shots often land in his grounds.

Speaking to a national newspaper, one golfer said: “It’s become a bit of a joke at the club. When you approach the hole if you are slightly off target then the ball will end up in his back garden.

“I just hope he doesn’t plan to have a greenhouse or summer house otherwise there will be a lot of broken glass”.

Andy, 29, also owns a £7.5million property in Surrey and a hotel in Perthshire.
