MILLINGTON, TN (WMC-TV) - He brought sexy back. Now, Justin Timberlake is bringing golf back to his hometown.

When the pop superstar and Millington native purchased Big Creek Golf Course in Millington last winter, he shut it down for a massive overhaul.
Next week, the 18-hole course on 7,800 yards will reopen under its new name, Mirimichi.

"Justin has got some Native American Heritage, and the name Mirimichi means 'a place of happy retreat,' " said course director Greg King.

King says the course is visually-stunning and will challenge golfers of all skill levels.

"We feel like with this world-class golf experience with the family that owns it, we feel we'll be a national and international draw," he said.

Although Mirimichi officially opens next Saturday, the course is already scheduling tee times. 

Timberlake is expected to attend the grand opening event, which is by invitation only.
