At the heart of the Melrose on the Beach is the 18-hole, 7,081 yard, par 72, Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. The golf course features fantastic finishing holes along the Atlantic Ocean with views of Hilton Head Island’s Harbor Town Lighthouse across the sound.


The golf clubhouse which will be renovated is 14,724 square feet and includes the restaurant and lounge, the Signature Pro Shop
, men’s and women’s locker rooms as well as the administrative offices.


“I remember saying back in the mid-eighties when I first saw the Melrose property that this site was an uncut jewel. It was a gorgeous piece of property. It was similar in ways to Kiawah and HarbourTown, but the land was higher and perhaps had more variety. There’s oceanfront, salt and fresh marsh, live oaks, mature pines, magnolias and other hardwoods.

All we had to do was set a golf course in there, and the end result was a design that tested the better players but was playable and enjoyable for all golfers. Most of all, we think we gave players a memorable experience.”

– Jack Nicklaus
