Having started work on a spoof documentary with the comedy rappers, students Jonathan Lawrence, Sam Smith-Higgins and Merlyn Phillips decided to ask GLC to come up with an anthem for the event.
Golf Is Coming was the result, featuring their unique take on the event. Smith-Higgins says of the first time Newport Male Voice Choir heard the song: "There was total silence. They all seemed dumbfounded.
"We were dying on our feet, but then they asked us to play the track again. We did, and they started singing along. We have it all on camera for our documentary."
Choir member Chris O'Malley thinks that the track will get a lot of interest. "It's very catchy and there's a lot of humour. This is a great opportunity for Newport's best known sons the GLC, our choir and the film school to come together."
GLC leader P Xain said, "So many people are in to golf. It's huge, bigger than speedway.
"People are even playing on the street or in a field. When I was 15, I had a party at my parents' house and we made our own golf course. Luckily nothing got damaged.
"I went to Blockbusters the other day to rent out a DVD of Happy Gilmore. All the copies had been rented out. That's how excited people are. It's driving people nuts."
