Golf course looks fine but they are not a good neighbor. The fence line along Ashmead Rd and Front Street looks terrible. Smashed fences, fallen trees, overgrown grass and weeds.We live right across the street, we've been here for 15 years and it's looked terrible for most of that time. I'm gonna give them a chance to clean it up then I will talk to the township.
Earlier today I played a round of golf here and I have to say, "What a gem". Normally the courses close to the city are run down but not JC Melrose. The pro shop is small and quaint supported by a friendly staff. Their golf carts are electric and in great condition. They also have coolers on each golf cart which they fill with ice so that you can keep drinks cold. They do serve beer as well as other goodies.
The course is in great condition and is well maintained. The fairways are even and the roughs are rough. The design is also on par (get it...lol). There are a variety of par 5's and some challenging par 3's as well. Some holes are flat while others are rolling hills. The greens are also true. They have a $35 special during the week after 2pm ( a great bargain). I only wish they had a beverage cart on the course (you have to stop at the clubhouse).
Overall....great course. I will definitely be back.
Came here for a charity event. The place is small but cute. There's a bar when you first walk in, the food was really bland, but the staff was nice. There was some technical difficulties with the equipment, which was terrible considering the event had some PowerPoint presentations. All in all, its not the most extravagant country club, but its pretty decent.
DO NOT HOST AN EVENT HERE!!! This place is terrible. The manager Jenny could care less about you enjoying our event and only wants your money. We had a retirement party here and it was terrible. The food was lame - Over peppered chicken, dry brownies, and a weak selection. Plus, there were flies in the wine they served!! They give you powdered iced tea and water in plastic cups and don't even serve you, they make you go get it at the bar. Pathetic. This place is a total rip off. NEVER GO HERE!
