  • JT learned his golf at Big Creek and felt a personal connection. He didn’t want to see it die after he realized it was in financial difficulty.
  • With Timberlake’s backing it has become an award winning eco-friendly layout now known as Mirimichi. 
  • He sold it a few years later for a loss financially, but hopefully with a warm feeling of the good he had done for golf in his hometown.
  • With a slope of 147 off the back tees this is no walk in the park. You can see the scorecard, a flyover of the course and other information on the Mirimichi website
  • Mirimichi has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from 36 reviews on Tripadvisor and 4.3 out of 5 from 77 reviews on Golfadvisor. It sounds like it’s worth a trip! Read what visitors have said.
