Timberlake Celebrates Improved Golf Course
MEMPHIS (AP) – Singer Justin Timberlake is celebrating the reopening of his Memphis golf course.
Mirimichi has been closed since mid-January for improvements. A news release from the course says it now offers a "world class golf experience at a public course without expensive memberships, minimums or monthly dues."
Improvements were made to the course's greens, bunkers and drainage, and its wetlands, wildflowers and native grasses were expanded.
Mirimichi is the first golf course in the Americas to receive Golf Environment Organization certification and the first course in the United States to be designated as a Certified Audubon International Classic Sanctuary. That makes it the only course in the world holding both designations.
