Justin Timberlake’s eco-friendly golf-course, Mirimichi, continues to reign in awards for its commitment to sustainability. EMA honored Timberlake last October at the 21st Annual Environmental Media Awards by presenting him with a Futures Award for his environmental achievements.

The Tennessee golf course has been named a Merit Winner of the 2011 Golf Digest / GCSAA Environmental Leaders in Golf Award.

Timberlake’s website notes that the award recognizes Mirimichi’s efforts in  areas of resource conservation, water quality management, integrated pest management, wildlife/habitat management, and education/outreach. In addition, these categories are judged on sustainability, criticality, originality, and technology implementation/use.

Nice work, JT!
