This course is now defunct and the entire area is sort of sad and decrepit. It is quite sad and eery. This whole area is a ghost resort - with tons of decrepit homes and building and a course that has totally fallen apart. Very...More

So many buildings are in disrepair and the golf course is greatly overgrown. Sad to see all the doors on the inn open on the land side. Some people still in residence but it looks like a cross between Chernobyl and a Stephen King novel....More

Sadly, there is no golf course -- just an overgrown patch of meadow. There is, well nothing there. No inn, no clubhouse, no pool, nothing. I drove through and all there is are empty promises. So sad.

We stayed in one of the, cottages in Melrose. It is sad. You pass 10 to 20 abandoned and storm ruined houses. No golf course. No pool. Nothing we thought we were getting when we booked here.

Sadly, this beautiful course has been closed and fallen into disrepair post-Hurricane Matthew. It was amazing that it stayed functioning as long as it did--thanks to an amazingly dedicated staff.

I payed 18 holes on June third, and had a great experience. I called the day before to setup a round and had no problem getting on the course. I was coming from Hilton Head, so I needed a water taxi. That ran me $45.00....More

Although I did not get a chance to play Melrose, I did walk a few of the holes and all I can say is it looked perfect. Clean and very well manicured.
