MEMPHIS, TN – The Tennessee Turfgrass Association recognized Mirimichi Golf Course with the organization’s first annual Environmental Stewardship Award at their annual conference in Franklin, Tennessee this week. The criteria for this prestigious award was based on outstanding contributions by individuals, organizations, businesses, educational institutions, and agencies for successful projects or activities designed to improve the environment through wildlife habitat preservation, water and resource conservation and reduction, and educational outreach.
Mirimichi, which means «place of happy retreat,» is located just 15 minutes north of downtown Memphis in Millington, Tn. The par 72 championship course is a challenging 7,400 yards from the tips, but provides five to eight different tee boxes on each hole to appeal to golfers of all abilities. Lush fairways, swathes of native grassland, beautiful landscaping, four waterfalls, six lakes and two meandering streams make this golfing oasis a place where people and nature co-exist in harmony.
Mirimichi is the first golf course in North, South or Central America to receive a certified status from the international Golf Environment Organization (GEO). Additionally, it is the first course in the United States to be designated as a Certified Audubon International Classic Sanctuary, making it the only golf course in the world to hold both designations. At Mirimichi, ecologically responsible methods are utilized throughout the property to enhance water quality and wildlife habitat, and to reduce water and energy consumption.
Justin Timberlake and the management of Mirimichi were formally presented the GEO Certification by Bud Smart, GEO Regional Director, The Americas September 4th, 2010.
