Mirimichi is definitely an above average golf course, especially for the Memphis area. It is not in a particularly nice area, and the course is pretty far out of the way, but once one makes the journey it will be worth it. Justin Timberlake's name is all over the place once you arrive as it is clear that he saved this once-failing golf course.
They have an eighteen hole championship course, as well as a junior course for those who want to pay less and still wack the little white ball around. The clubhouse is pretty tiny compared to some others I have seen in the area, and the driving range isn't the best. The putting green is also pretty far away from the clubhouse and it took us a few minutes to actually locate it.
The course itself is pretty much what you would expect from a well respected course like this one. The front nine I didn't think was really anything that special, but once you arrive on the back nine you can see why this course has received such good reviews. It is fun to play, in good shape, and very challenging. The course is fun and will put you to the test, so I certainly recommend it.
So I attempted to golf again...
For my third time ever seriously trying I really had a great day! We played the "little mirimichi" which is a small 9 hole course separate from the main 18 holes. I loved playing the little one because we were literally the only people on the course so I didn't get nervous since people weren't breathing down my back to hit next. I shot a 46 on 9 holes and I am still very impressed with myself! The venue is absolutely the most beautiful golf course I have ever seen. The club house is immaculate and all the employees are extremely helpful.They have the most beautiful outdoor club house up on the hill of the main 18, it would be a perfect place for a rehearsal dinner or reception.
To play the little mirimichi it is only $20 and you get all the range balls you want! You really can't beat that!
I can't wait to play again!
Absolutely one of the best courses I have played. It is very friendly for all skill levels including the ladies. I would play here everyday if I could.
There are virtually no homes on this course so it is pristine. The amenities are fabulous and the staff was very nice. This is how a golf course should be, great job.
Best public golf in an area sorely needing quality courses. Amazing practice facility. Great greens. PGA could play the St. Jude here.
This golf course is fantastic. From the warm greeting/ride to the club house when you arrive, the free range balls for warm up, and the great hot dog at the turn. This is before you even get to the golf.
The course itself is gorgeous, perfectly manicured, and challenging. The layout of each hole really takes advantage of the local environment, encompassing the beauty of the surroundings.
Mirimichi is really an unexpected, hidden gem off of Hwy 51.
I plan to play here, and play often.
