Justin Timberlake's 27-hole golf course in Millington is scheduled to reopen today, after being closed for nearly a month due to flooding.

Before floodwaters rose, the Mirimichi golf course installed an aqua wall, an intertube designed to hold back floodwaters, around their state-of-the-art performance shop. However, there was nothing they could do to prevent flooding of the 7,400-yard golf course.

At the time, Director of Golf Greg King told the Flyer the golf course likely wouldn't see too much damage from the flooding.

"We feel confident that, as the water recedes, the grass choices that we have are most tolerant to these conditions," King said.

Mirimichi announced yesterday that the performance center reopens today, meaning they're open for golf lessons, club fittings, and golf clinics. The on-site cafe is also open for business. The nine-hole championship golf course will reopen on June 24th, but the 18-hole course won't be ready until late July or early August. A date will be set when they can better access how much repair is needed on the front nine holes.

After his arrest, George Howard Putt told reporters, “I’d do it all again.” The murder spree began on the afternoon of August 14, 1969 ...
