One former Premier League star has admitted he is banned from a £100,000-a-year golf course following a 'drunken incident'.
Drunken scandals often go hand in hand with Premier League footballers and that is no different from retired midfielder Jimmy Bullard.
The former Wigan, Fulham and Hull City player, perhaps best known for his role as Soccer AM host, was guilty of taking things too far after "a few drinks".
The 45-year-old previously joined the prestigious Sunningdale Golf Club in Berkshire, where it costs £92,000 to become a full member, on top of an annual fee of £9,500, meaning a member needs to pay an eye-watering £100,000 in total.
However, Bullard has been banned from the club after attempting to use a Peroni bottle as the first tee.
"I’m not allowed to go again," he told snooker legend Stephen Hendry (quotes via the Daily Mail)
"I had a few drinks and I got carried away. I put a Peroni off the first tee and clipped a ball off it. It’s obviously not the thing to do so I apologise.
'If there are any Sunningdale members watching, I do apologise. I really want to come back."
Bullard is known for being a bit of a character both on and off the pitch, making him a popular figure amongst fans wherever he went.
The Englishman first made his Premier League debut with Wigan in 2005 after helping them win promotion, and moved to Fulham the following year.
After two years at Craven Cottage he signed for Hull, before eventually retiring in 2012, where he has since gone onto have a hugely successful TV career.
Bullard appeared on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here in 2014, before becoming the face of Soccer AM in 2017, which was sadly axed earlier this year.
