Singer's family buys Millington course just before auction

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The family of pop singer Justin Timberlake has bought the Big Creek golf course near Memphis, just before it was to be sold at auction.

The last-minute deal prevented the public course near Millington from going on the block yesterday.

A representative of the family says Big Creek will remain an upscale public golf course.

Justin Timberlake is reported to be an avid golfer who plays to a 6-handicap.

The PGA Tour announced this month that the four-time Grammy winner and actor would host the Tour's stop in Las Vegas next year.

Course owner Lanier Hurdle says only that the selling price was more than the $750,000 minimum bid that had been set for auction.
