Memphis, Tennessee is a Southern hotspot for culture, music, and – of course – exceptional ribs. Did you know that The Birthplace of Rock 'N' Roll has some incredible golf options? The PGA Tour is headed to Memphis for the FedEx St. Jude Classic, so we turned to's very own Travelin' Joe Passov for the best places to play, eat, and stay in the BBQ capital of the world. First up on the roster? Embrace the music and play Mirimichi. This is the course where Memphis native Justin Timberlake learned to play the game. When the course faced demolition a few years ago, Timberlake jumped in and saved it. When you're through at the green, you may want to stop into the Peabody Hotel – a favorite of Tennessee travelers with tons of historic charm. And, if you're ready to grab some grub, be sure to check out Jim Neely's Interstate Bar-B-Q. So, whether you're taking a trip to Graceland, hoping to have a beer on Beale Street, or going up in Memphis' crazy-looking pyramid, be sure to leave a little time in your schedule for a round of golf.
