Power Rankings: Miami's Melreese Golf Course leads top-rated courses of the week for August 10

An up-and-coming play in South Florida, Miami's Melreese Golf Course continues to have a solid 2015 among golfers.

Not only did the recently renovated course lead our 2nd quarter rankings, they once again topped Power Rankings for the week of August 10th. The most recent review summed up the experience this way:

"The pro, John Reed and staff are always friendly and the food is outstanding in a private club setting. Best value in Miami. Go play!"

They unseated last week's No. 1 course, Dove Mountain, by a very small margin. Here are the Top 10 overall courses of the week, followed by our most active courses currently on Golf Advisor.
