Golf Course Says
A nine hole pay and play course that can be easily accessed from Edinburgh Melville Golf Centre provides enough of a challenge to make golfers feel they are playing a "real" 18 hole course. The mix of holes makes Melville ideal for both the beginner and the experienced campaigner.
Golfalot Review of Melville Golf Centre
We found Melville in fine condition for a nine hole pay as you play course. The greens and fairways are more than adequate and better than you might expect from a course like this. The course is not hard but presents enough of a challenge to keep you occupied if you are playing with a beginner. Small, well protected greens on some of the holes make them more difficult than they appear. As this is a pay and play it can get busy, often with groups of children. There are better courses out there but if you want a gentle introduction - or reintroduction - to golf then Melville is a reasonable option. For a nine hole course that gets so much use, however, we did feel the green fees, especially at weekends, were quite steep.

Our local course had been closed for the past 3 days. A neighbour suggested Melville. We turned up at 10.30am to be told by the Green Keeper that the greens were playable. This was a great bonus as we have been playing winter greens for the past 3 months. The course was in immaculate condition for the time of year and is obviously very well drained. We had only planned to play 9 holes but when we were offered another 9 holes for £8 we couldn't resist. The other golfers we talked to all commented that Melville is the automatic choice when your local course is closed in Edinburgh. It never seems to close. We are also looking to sign-up to the roll-up tuition classes on the driving range.

You normally find Meliville in sound condition and there are worse places to go for quick round to get your eye in. It does seem to be a bit costly compared to what you get for your money elsewhere in the area. The plus side is, however, you can almost always get on even if you have to hit a few balls on the range for half an hour to wait for a tee time. There is a mix of par threes and par fours and some of the the short holes are a bit mundane (sadly, including the first - the course deserves a better start) but some of the par fours are really nice. Not a must play but perfectly adequate.
