"It was soon after winning The 1999 Open that I began to seriously consider what I could put back into the game and came up with the Paul Lawrie Foundation. It would be the biggest thrill of my life if someone from my Foundation won on tour....or most of all won a major!" Paul Lawrie
Launched in March 2001, The Paul Lawrie Foundation has steadily grown both in popularity and reputation. It has developed a programme for under-18s that gives them the opportunity to try golf and encourages them to develop their sporting potential.
The Paul Lawrie Foundation has a variety of different levels and offers children the chance to:
Experience the game, improve their skills, ease the transition from participation to the club environment, play to the best of their ability or interest and to have fun playing golf. A full calendar of events for 2010 is available to download on the entry forms page.
At primary school level children have the opportunity to try an adapted golf game called TRI – GOLF. 9-14 year olds can then benefit from a series of lessons delivered by Professional Golfers’ Association members.
The Paul Lawrie Foundation aims to support and sustain an interest and enthusiasm for the game. Activities are delivered in a fun and relaxed setting with equipment provided if necessary. The Foundation has grown rapidly and now includes football and hockey.
With your support the Paul Lawrie Foundation will maintain its place as one of the leading programmes in Scotland.
