Another Reason Why I Love Justin Timberlake :: Greenest Golf Course in US by Laura

I’ve got a handful of reasons why I love Justin Timberlake, one of them being his down to earth personality, shown by the latest news that he bought the golf course where he first fell in love with golf.

This is a storybook tale here ladies and gents, it was going to auction and going to become a “development” (ahh, I can smell the day laborers and cheap carpet from here), Timberlake heard the news and was able to save it from track home hell, and made it better than ever.

It opened this last Saturday, the 25th.

Renamed Mirimichi Golf Course, Timberlake’s newest venture is the first project in the U.S. to receive the Audubon International’s Classic Sanctuary certification.

The course will feature irrigation systems that will maximize the use of rainwater, native landscaping and electric golf carts powered by solar panels.

“After we had the golf course, we said why don’t we refurbish it and make it even nicer for the community. Then I asked questions about what we could possibly do, and we found out we could actually make it a ‘green course,'” Timberlake said.

“So when it’s finished this summer it will be a Platinum LEED certified green course. The first in the United States of America, so that’s pretty exciting that you could take all that land and make it eco-friendly.”

I know it won’t be hard to convince my boyfriend to head out to TN and shoot a round on the “greenest” golfing destination in the US, and maybe I can spy on…I mean catch a glimpse of Justin  ; )
