Course Reviews

I played Melrose and it is the best maintained course that allows public play in this area. I like that it's never too crowded there so I can play a round without other golfers breathing down my neck. The course is pretty difficult but enjoyable to play.

Melrose is a very short but difficult course. The greens are very fast, but roll true and are hard to read. The rough is usually very thick and there are slight hills on almost all the holes, so you are rarely on a flat surface when hitting your approach shots. The course is always in great condition, especially the green. There are 2 long par 3's that are very difficult and par 4 (#5) on the front that requires a long/straight carry from the tee when playing from the blues. You can easily get around this course using your long irons, or fairway woods/hybrids from the tee, which may be a good idea, because it's very tight on many of the tree-lined holes.

It is currently semi-private probably until next year, so you can play after 12pm. They will probably be back to private by next year.

play here at least once a week,shawn and david do a great job the course is always in great shape,if the trees dont get you the greens will,


It is very challanging of the tee if you have a driver in your hand. Greens are incredibly hard to read and putt. Great Golf course.
