Melreese Golf Course at International Links
The Melreese golf course at International Links is where Tiger Woods made his first professional appearance in south Florida. The championship course, which has six sets of tees, features rolling fairways and large, undulating greens. It is a tight golf course featuring five lakes that come into play on 14 holes. To make up for the damages caused by Hurricane Andrew, the golf course has been outfitted with replanted tall live oak and palm trees that can affect shots. There are also nearly 100 sand bunkers present on the course. The Melreese course's signature hole is the par-4 14th, which is nicknamed "Heartbreak Ridge." It has water alongside the right side of the fairway all the way from the tee to the green, and it requires an approach shot past water to an island green. The International Links facility also offers a lighted driving range and putting green.

Horrible Service and Mediocre Golf
I had a 3:00 tee time and did not get out until 3:40. Did not get so much as an apology or anything just bad excuses. The front nine is extremely forgettable and the nine has a few decent holes but the course is not in very good condition. Greens were slow, rough was awful, and the fairs were meh. The pace of play was horrible as I had the pace for almost a five hour round. I got yelled at by an employee saying don't go off the cart path when I literally stayed on the cart path the whole round. Overall I would recommend Crandon, Normandy, Biltmore, Miami Shores over here. Never been treated so poorly and I play a lot of golf.
I played this horse for the first time greens were punched 3 weeks ago however they have come back nicely Fairways excellent shape. I highly recommend this course. Check the flags if the flag is up stay below the flag greens are fast
Great virus response
By far the best Virus response by any local course. Ball actually has to drop in the cup. It’s a great value if you get the Premier card.
Love this Course
I had booked a tee time for around 1:30pm, Went out there early at like 12 and they allowed me to go out early. I’m usually a single player, but I like being paired up with different guys/groups. Today was one of those days. Played with Vito, retired NYPD detective, stand up guy. Really enjoyed the course with him as we both play it frequently. Great layout, Greens are kept nice and true. Love the links style!
Miami with friends and golf
Melreese met all our expectations as we see the course from the highway all the time but had never played it. Very well groomed grounds, beautiful course and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Will return for sure.
Canadian in the Keys
Pleasantly surprised today with the courses condition. Both fairways and green in good shape. Playing again in two weeks
Get Rounds in Here Before Its Too Late
From my understanding is this golf course is going to be bulldozed down soon because David Beckham is building his soccer stadium/complex. It’s a great layout, quite a few holes are forgiving, greens are always in great shape. Pace of play is solid if you’re single 99% of the time the group in front of You allows you to play through. Shot a 78 today!
Very good course
The course was in excellent condition, thoroughly enjoyed it. Very friendly staff, great Proshop, all in all an excellent experience.
Great Course in Pristine Condition
I was amazed at how well kept the course is. Fairways were great. Greens firm and fast. Bunkers were extremely enjoyable. Great experience!
Making the reservation for Residents via Golf Now app was AMAZINGLY EASY! The Melreese staff was just awesome, thank you Mrs. Jenny and Dave! Well kept fairways with even better big sloped challenging greens. The Par 5s and 3s are the way to attack this course. If you have kids bring them!!! You see the First Tee kiddos all over the course playing the game. Just a great experience and you get to make many wishes when the impressive airplanes fly over you.
Don’t waste your money
Called the pro shop and they said greens were good. Lied! Course conditions were absolutely terrible.. not worth the money. Jenny in the pro shop was not friendly. This course USED to be great... don’t waste your money. Go play Miami Shores or Miami Beach.
Excellent place to play golf
I think this is an excellent course! Come on down and see it for your self
Great golf course
Awesome golf course too bad it will be turned into a stadium. Always in great shape. Only draw back is the starter who does poor job managing the tee box plus no manners, terrible customer service, always in a bad mood Once you pass that you will enjoy Miami's finest track... love it!
