Detailed description of Melrose Country Club

Melrose Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania.

Melrose Country Club first opened for play in 1927. The course was designed by Perry Maxwell. Maxwell's trademark is his boldly undulating greens. At Melrose, he took a limited and difficult-often abruptly hilly-parcel of land and developed on it a sporty layout which, though short, was challenging and diverse. The 1970s construction of the Tookany Creek Parkway would call for extensive revisions to Maxwell's design by the Canadian architect Clinton E. "Robbie" Robinson. This 18-hole championship golf course with rolling fairways and many new undulating greens has been maintained to USGA standards. Melrose Country Club epitomizes the term "Target Golf."

Par for the course is 70. From the back tees the course plays to 5850 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4992 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-5 that plays to 490 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 143 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 1, a 387 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Melrose Country Club is # 11, a 328 yard par-4.

Course can be quite challenging if you are not a long hitter. Not long in total yardage. Has some challenging holes particularly the par 3's. Greens have consistantly been in great shape.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
