The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Justin Timberlake clearly held an ambition to create a top-quality, public-access golf facility in his home-town of Memphis. The vision was realised with his acquisition and transformation of the Big Creek Golf Course. Located just a few miles north of downtown Memphis, the completely redesigned course, renamed as Mirimichi, opened in 2009 to the delight of local golfers. The main course, complemented by a large practice area and testing nine-hole course, makes full use of gently rolling fairways, swathes of native grass, four waterfalls, six lakes and two meandering streams. An array of stylish bunkering contains Augusta-like sparkling white sand. Among many great holes, the par-4 10th, played from an elevated tee is one of the most memorable. The fairway, like most others, is wide enough not to be intimidating, but only a well-executed approach will get you pin-high on the 80 yard front-to-back green, which is a mere 15-yards wide. A menacing creek protects the front and right of this green. The partly-open, partly tree-lined front-nine, laid out on flattish terrain, is home to gently rolling fairways and plenty of hole-defining mounds. The more undulating back-nine, also brings water into play on several holes, most dangerously at the par-3 11th, downhill par-3 14th and flanking the green on the dog-legging par-4 17th. Most of the time this wonderfully natural course is bounded by woodland; only on a small stretch of the back-nine will you see a house or two. As the star golfing attraction in the home of the Blues, Mirimichi is definitely a place to get on your blue-suede golf shoes, tee it up and enjoy one of Tennessee's finest.

Did you know?

Mirimichi started life in 1965 as a William F. Mitchell design that was known as the Woodstock Hills Country Club; it was subsequently renamed as Big Creek Golf Course. After acquisition by Justin Timberlake and Lynn & Paul Harless, the course was redeveloped and opened for play as Mirimichi in 2009. | The entire site, including the golf courses, practice areas and maintenance areas are operated to the highest environmental standards (perhaps higher than any other facility we've visited). This has resulted in Mirimichi gaining certified status from the Golf Environment Organisation (GEO) and receiving Audubon International's Classic Sanctuary status. | Mirimichi is a native Indian American word meaning "place of happy retreat."
