Justin Timberlake's Mirimichi golf course is set to open July 25 in suburban Memphis after a $16 million renovation aimed at making it environmentally friendly.

The Commercial Appeal reported that Timberlake invested in reconstruction of the former Big Creek Golf Course after buying it late in 2007.

Mirimichi director of golf Greg King said Timberlake played the few holes that were ready in the early spring and King is eager for the celebrity owner to play the completed project.

Timberlake bought the golf course to save it from commercial development and the project was designed to be the first eco-friendly course to be certified by the Audubon Classic Sanctuary Program.
