Justin Timberlake is closing his golf course for six months to make improvements just a half-year after opening it.

The Mirimichi golf course will close from Jan. 15 to July 17 while its greens, bunkers and drainage are improved and its wetlands, wildflowers and native grasses are expanded.

According to The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis, Timberlake said Tuesday he originally planned to make the improvements over three years and stay open. But he said he didn't want the public to have to wait through three years of gradual improvements.

Timberlake, a Memphis native, and his family bought the former Big Creek Golf Course and spent $16 million renovating the 18 holes.
