17 and 18 might be in the ocean! It seems the work on repairing the seawall along the last three holes has stopped due to cash flow problems of the latest investment group, as has work on the inn, tennis facility and some of the cottages...but I digress, this review is just about the golf course.
I played two rounds here and my other half played three. Daufuskie is a special place and playing Melrose is truly cool.The course is in good shape, plenty of dripping moss, deer, Fox squirrels and alligators to keep you distracted too. I needed the distractions as I took a lot of swings....not the courses fault or my clubs, unfortunately...
Also, there is also a great newly refurbished restaurant to have lunch or dinner at either before or after your round of golf. If you stay in one of the open cottages, of which there are several, you can also enjoy the pools...these are redone too and nice.
So, play here this year and maybe if the course can really make a comeback then funds will be available to fix that sea wall so Melrose can remain open for many years to come.
I know we will come down and play it again...soon!
