Real Estate Recap
Golf Performance Center Slated For Timberlake’s Mirimichi
6129 Woodstock Cuba Road
Millington, TN 38053
Permit Amount: $1.3 Million
Project Cost: $1.3 million
Permit Date: Applied October 2009
Owner: Big Creek Golf LLC
Tenant: Callaway Performance Center
Contractor: Eagle Contractors Inc.
Details: Mirimichi golf course near Millington – the facility owned by megastar and Memphis native Justin Timberlake and his family – soon will begin work on the Callaway Performance Center, according to a $1.3 million building permit filed last week with the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement.
The formal address of the center is 6129 Woodstock Cuba Road in the unincorporated Woodstock community off U.S. 51 between Memphis and Millington. The golf course is at 6195 Woodstock Cuba Road.
Big Creek Golf LLC, the family owned entity that runs Mirimichi, filed the permit last week to build the center, scheduled to open in 2010. Mirimichi will be home to one of just nine Callaway Performance Centers in the country, according to the golf club’s Web site. The center’s technology assesses a golfer’s swing and then makes suggestions to improve a player’s mechanics and club selection. Timberlake, an avid golfer, has an endorsement contract with Callaway.
The entity Big Creek Golf is a nod to the golf course’s old name, Big Creek Golf Course. Timberlake, his mother, Lynn Harless, and his stepfather, Paul Harless, kept the property from being auctioned off to developers. They bought the course for $880,000 in 2007 and transformed it into Mirimichi, a Native American word meaning “place of happy retreat.”
