Dad-of-four Wayne, 34, already has a football pitch in the 120-acre grounds of the mansion he and wife Coleen are having built in Cheshire farmland.

And he has two fishing lakes at the front of the property.

A source revealed: “Wayne is golf mad and his older sons enjoy the game as well.

“He’s got a little putting area at his current place.

“But with all the land available at his new place, the gardeners and designers will have free reign.

“He wants a couple of full-length holes with bunkers, water features, buggies — the lot.”

Ex-Manchester United star Wayne, now at Derby, bought the plot for £4.3million.


When work is finished next year, the sprawling home is expected to be worth around £20million.

Rooney returned to England earlier this year to play for Derby after Coleen wanted their four boys to grow up nearer home in Cheshire.

He had previously been playing for DC United in Washington DC, US.
