Mirimichi Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1965

Mirimichi Golf Course: 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 2008 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 visiting golfers.

Since opening as Mirimichi, a number of factors, including the 2011 Mississippi River flood, and Timberlake's sale of the property in 2015, have impacted what was once the "talk of the town". Mirimich now exudes a more humble persona, with a much more affordable green fee than in its heyday.

The main course, complemented by a large practice area and testing nine-hole course, still makes full use of the gently rolling terrain, swathes of native grass, and several water features.

Among many excellent 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 natural course is bounded by woodland; only on a small stretch of the back-nine will you see a house or two. Once the star golfing attraction in the home of the Blues, Mirimichi was definitely the place to put on your blue-suede golf shoes.

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.

Mirimichi is a native Indian American word meaning "place of happy retreat."
