WHERE does international popstar and avid golfer Justin Timberlake go to have a hit while in Adelaide? Nowhere apparently, with the exclusive Royal Adelaide Golf Club too busy for the SexyBack singer on the weekend.
Timberlake’s entourage, including his security detail, reportedly scoped out the highly-rated course at Seaton on Sunday afternoon but the perfect spring conditions ensured the manicured fairways and greens were already overrun by players.
Timberlake, whose golf handicap is said to be in single figures, previously played nine holes at Royal Adelaide when he was in town back in 2007.
Club general manager Andrew Gay said he was unaware the megastar was considering playing the course when contacted by The Advertiser.
Timberlake jetted into Adelaide on Saturday, enjoying a quiet evening at his CBD hotel. Unable to get a game in on Sunday he headed out to Norwood’s Hoyts cinema for a screening of the new animated children’s flick, Planes: Fire & Rescue .
Wearing a yellow baseball cap, green top, khaki pants and white sneakers, Timberlake — who was minus actress wife Jessica Biel — was ushered into the complex through a back entrance by an entourage of about 12 people, including a van full of security guards.
Surprisingly, the singer, who’s rumoured be trying to start a family with Biel, didn’t secure the entire cinema, and was joined by other patrons for the screening.
Only a small group of fans were aware of Timberlake’s appearance at the film, which was a closely guarded secret. The cinema remained tight-lipped after signing confidentiality forms prior to his arrival.
Hey, isn’t that … Justin Timberlake, on the greens at Congressional Country Club on Tuesday afternoon?
The triple-threat entertainer (sporting a natty striped golf shirt) took a break from his “20/20 Experience” tour, after a Monday-night performance in Baltimore, to hit the links at the famed golf course.Justin was spotted with Congressional President Steve Durante and two other men — word is that JT connected with Durante through his daughter, country singer Maggie Rose.
Alas, a rainstorm cut the round short (one source says Timberlake was putting for an eagle before the washout), and the group hit the clubhouse for lunch. The crowd in the restaurant, accustomed to VIPs, played it cool.
But a group of kids — campers whose activities had also been canceled because of the weather — weren’t as blase, gathering outside the adults-only dining area to gawk at the star. On his way out, the affable Timberlake posed for a picture with the young folks in the club’s pro shop.
he’s the only person that makes golf look so sexy!

Justin Timberlake is seen enjoying 18 holes of golf at Lakeside Golf Course with his mates on a beautiful sunny day in Los Angeles. Justin, who is good enough to hold his own with a golf pro, showed how serious he was by using a range finding pair of binoculars to judge the distance to his next hole and then later on after a great putt he showed his great reflexes by doing a little maneuver with his golf buddy where they throw their golf balls in the air to each other then quickly high five before catching the balls before they hit the ground.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, David Feherty mentioned he would love to have Justin Timberlake (and Timberlake’s new wife) on his show, Feherty.
There are people on my wish list — Jessica Biel — but I don’t know if they play golf or not. Justin Timberlake I know plays golf so I have an outside chance.
I’d say the chance is closer than “outside.” Timberlake is a noted golf wonk, and Feherty hasn’t exactly been short on star power in the past few years of hosting his own show.
Sit-down guests have included Bubba Watson, Tom Watson, Graeme McDowell, Samuel L. Jackson, John Daly, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Michelle Wie, Rory McIlroy, Bill Russell, Don Cheadle and Tony Romo.
Guests for this year include Bobby Knight, Phil Mickelson and Jack Nicklaus.
I, for one, would love to see Timberlake join Feherty for an episode (I could do without Biel, though). Both are top-notch entertainers and know how to play to an audience.

5:55PM EST October 2. 2012 – It was an “ouch” day for Justin Timberlake. Shriners Hospitals for Children, sponsor of an annual Las Vegas celebrity golf tournament, ended its relationship with him in an embarrassingly public way.
“Justin’s a wonderful person,” tournament chairman Raoul Frevel told the Las Vegas Review Journal. Frevel coordinated the pop/movie star’s involvement with the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas and his corresponding concerts, aimed at raising money for the group’s well-regarded hospitals.
Frevel says the Shriners tried to get the former N’Sync star to become more involved with the hospitals and the patients they serve. “But it seemed that when the TV cameras weren’t on, he disappeared.”
So after Sunday’s final round in this year’s tournament, which begins Thursday, Timberlake and the Shriners will part ways.
Timberlake did help raise millions through his concerts during the tournament in his first four years, but he wasn’t able to attract more media interest or consistently lure bigger-name players, says Frevel.
“At the time we got involved with golf, we were told by the Tour we needed a big name, and that’s how our relationship with Justin came about,” Frevel said.
“Bye, bye, Justin,” read the opening paragraph of the Review-Journal‘s story on the split.
Next year, the tournament will be known as the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and will be part of the Tour’s FedEx Cup series, counting toward the playoffs in 2014.
In 2013, the PGA Tour’s Vegas stop will be part of the FedEx Cup series – currently, it’s the opening event of the Fall Series and awards no points – but that won’t be the only change.
According to a report Wednesday in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the event will no longer feature entertainer Justin Timberlake as tournament host. Instead, the focus will return to the hospitals and patients at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
“We’re a world-class organization,” said tournament chairman Raoul Frevel, according to the report. “At the time we got involved with golf, we were told by the Tour we needed a big name, and that’s how our relationship with Justin came about.
“Justin’s a wonderful person. But we tried everything we could to get him more involved with our kids and the hospitals. But it seemed that when the TV cameras weren’t on, he disappeared.”
To begin the transition, the Review-Journal reported that the tournament sent about 300 invitations to PGA Tour players. Each note included a personal message from a Shriners Hospital patient, asking the players to “Join the Celebration.”
