I play regularly at Melreese and after living and playing throughout the USA, there are few better courses and practice areas anywhere. This was a crime that I personally believe should not be attached to the proposed new Soccer stadium. The Arsonist stayed and watched his work for too long and it was very easy to track him down. My concern about the Soccer Stadium plan is not limited to the course and the wonderful Miami First-tee, but equally the negative impact it will have on untold thousands of people going and coming from the airport or commuting daily from the north, east and west in that area. MIAMI RESIDENTS or anyone trying to get to, or coming from the Miami International Airport (or home) should be alerted to the hideous traffic congestion that will result during and after construction. More lives will be impacted negatively then benefited by a stadium constructed in one of the already busiest traffic corridors in South Florida. MIAMI residents need to vote NO to the loss of an important green area and recreational program and realize that a few will benefit on the backs of many. The stadium should be out further -- maybe in the area of the new super mall being built west and north of that location. And, seldom do I read on-line conversations about anything but some of the unthoughtful and destructive comments that I have seen here are a bad sign for us all.

In the early ninety's, I qualified for the US Amateur Public Links Championship at Melreese so I have very fond memories for this course. It would be a shame to lose it to the MLS. There's other places the soccer complex could fit in and should be considered moving forward. Just my two cents :)

No sense in arguing this issue. Those who live in Miami have the ball in their court. Be sure to vote your feelings in November. Keep the golf course and find another place for David Beckham and the Mas brothers to build a soccer complex.

This will clear the way for that soccer stadium. When a developer is doing lazy circles over your property, you need 24 hour security. Volunteers saved the Fox Theater in Midtown Atlanta when Bell South was doing those lazy circles.
