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.
