Like a middleweight champion down on his luck awaiting money and management Melrose has talent, class and a few rough patches. The Nicklaus design offers some fun choices, great vistas of low country marsh and beach, and 3 great ocean views as you finish your round. Some of the rough spots are endearing. Dave is the welcoming host who does what ever he can for you noting the closed club house, the lack of food and a few course maintenance issues. Of course the biggest maintenance issue involves a missing 18th green. Half the green has fallen into the ocean. This dramatic view, a geomorphologist's dream, means you have to hole out on the temporary green. How many times have you ever gotten do that?
So if you want to play a great course almost by yourself, enjoy wonderful hospitality, see what happens to a course when the money goes away, and see a beautiful part of the low country hop the ferry and get out there!
