Melville Golf Centre  was delighted to host the first disability golf taster sessions of 2024.  Individuals with a disability were invited to try golf at sessions..

Attendees learnt about the fundamentals of the game in fun, relaxed and interactive group sessions led by our PGA professionals John and Iain, and had the opportunity to access adaptive equipment.

Golf is a sport that can be played irrespective of age, gender, physical condition or limitations. Golf is a fully inclusive mainstream sport which is typically played in the open air and which can also be practised in traditional and non-traditional golfing environments.

MELVILLE Golf Centre has become the first in Scotland to install a new state-of-the-art camera system that can take your golf swing to the next level.

The popular Edinburgh Toptracer range is leading the way with its introduction of Nugget Golf, which allows players to watch, analyse and improve their golf at the touch of a button.

By simply taking a swing in the ‘smart bay’ and scanning a QR code, players can instantly view a video in which the plane of their club, body angles and ball trajectory are all traced and measured.

There is also an opportunity to request feedback from Melville’s resident golf professionals so that you can benefit fully from the technology and practise with purpose.

It is another exciting development for the facility near Lasswade, which already includes a nine-hole course, short-game area and Toptracer technology across its floodlit, all-weather range.

Alastair Macfarlane, owner of Melville Golf Centre, said: “We are thrilled to be the first in Scotland to introduce Nugget Golf, which allows golfers to practise with purpose “

James Charalambous, Co-founder of Nugget Golf explained that Melville Golf Centre’s embrace of Nugget Golf marks a significant stride in elevating the golfing experience for players in Scotland who are seeking to improve their game. Our technology is dedicated to helping golfers refine their skills and enjoy more purposeful practice.”

Alan Reid, PGA Coach, said: “A great opportunity for golfers struggling with their game to receive feedback here at Melville”

Small and easy to move  onto the driving range, Approach R10 is the portable launch monitor that brings the course to you.


The included phone mount clips to your golf bag, letting you view and interact with the Garmin Golf app on your compatible smartphone between swings.


Work to improve your shot consistency by tracking metrics such as club head speed, ball speed, spin, launch angle, launch direction, smash factor and more.

For practical purposes, when it comes to distance, you can assume that the R10 would be off by a few yards at worst. When it comes to other metrics, Garmin gives the accuracies as:

Join us this Thursday and Play it Purple!

Throughout Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month, landmarks and homes across the UK and globe will light up purple to put a spotlight on pancreatic cancer, a disease that deserves more attention.
Click the link above to make a donation to Pancreatic Cancer Action


Nearly 10,500 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year and shockingly, less than 7% of those diagnosed will survive beyond 5 years. The disease currently receives just 3% of UK cancer research funding, despite being the UK’s fifth biggest cancer killer.

The Macfarlane family and friends said: we are delighted to be raising awareness of this dreadful disease by taking part in the Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer campaign. I hope that by lighting up Melville Golf Centre in purple, it will help put a spotlight on a disease that many people still know so very little about.”

Toptracer 30 now at Melville

Our most comprehensive assessment of golf skills is now available! For golfers looking to improve their game or experience the pressure of a real round, this 30-shot game simulates on-course scenarios at The Champion course at PGA National. Detailed post-game analysis and personalized insights reveal the best parts of your game as well as areas of improvement. You’re just 30 shots away from better play! Try Toptracer30 today.

How it Works

Toptracer30 consists of 30 shots: nine tee shots (on par 4s and par 5s) and 21 approach shots (three shots from seven different 25-yard distance brackets).

At the beginning of the game, you’ll be asked to input a reference handicap. This number will be used for comparison purposes throughout the game, We recommend using your current handicap if you know it. As you hit each shot, T30 uses the strokes gained methodology to calculate how efficiently you move from point A to point B.

At the end of the game, T30 generates an estimated performance handicap, a total game score, and a number of personalized insights that you can use to inform your next practice session.
