Inside the 140 acre private golf course of Britain’s wealthiest gypsy Alfie Best and luxury lodges – here’s how to visit it
Britain’s richest gypsy Alfie Best is the proud owner of a private golf course – and anyone can drop in for a round.
With a net worth of £740million, Alfie was easily able to get his hands on the 140-acre green in 2017 – and save it from closure.
It’s now the crowning jewel of his empire – which includes his Wyldecrest Parks residential car parks, which grossed £32million last year alone.
He is now on track to be crowned the world’s first Gypsy billionaire as early as next year.
Now golf fans can get a taste of his luxurious lifestyle on his green in the rolling hills of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
Sapey Golf and Country Club has two scenic golf courses with a number of beautiful lakes.
And it even has a top-of-the-line golf simulator used by professionals.
This means players can play a variety of courses from around the world in the comfort of central heating – and grab a few drinks and snacks between holes.
You don’t even need to be a member to play – as they accept visitor bookings for as little as £25.
Alfie also owns four luxury lodges bordering the award winning golf course.
Guests each have their own Jacuzzi to soak in the beautiful views while relaxing.
And you may even see a hare or muntjac roaming by at night, and barn owls often perch on the deck posts to survey the area.
However, Alfie was far from luxury lodges as he didn’t start out with millions.
He grew up in a trailer at a rest area with an outdoor campfire for a stove. But his childhood was happy, he shares.
He told The Sun: “There was nothing wrong with the way I lived – if I’m being honest with you.
“I hear all these sad stories about how people had hard lives.
“But they never fail to tell you that they know differently now.
“I saw nothing wrong with my upbringing.
“Our kitchen was a cooking pan and pot outside on an open fire. That was our stove.
“I thought there was nothing wrong with that. People pay to go camping. That’s what you’re used to.
“We lived in a small trailer, me, my father and my mother. There were three of us. With small I speak ten feet long.
“We always had food in the cupboard – but we would go out with our Lurcher dog and what we killed we ate.
