“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 has grown over the years and I am proud of what we’ve all achieved.”
– 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 is available to download on the entry forms page.

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.

With your support the Paul Lawrie Foundation will maintain its place as one of the leading grass roots golf development programmes in Scotland.


We’re here to make sure every young person has the opportunity to play golf. One day, we hope to create a Major champion.

Through competitive events including Stablefords, Matchplay, Strokeplay and Flag Days the aim of the Foundation is to get as many young people playing golf as possible, having fun in the process.

Throughout the season we host these competitions at clubs across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to give juniors in a variety of age ranges a chance to experience all the fantastic courses we have on our doorstep. We want to ensure that the newest players get a chance to experience what golf has to offer whilst allowing our more experienced players the chance to develop their game.

With guidance from Paul, the Foundation team and visiting PGA Professionals, juniors receive the benefit of their wisdom to help improve their game but also a wider appreciation of the game and the etiquette that governs it.

More than anything, the Foundation offers access to clubs, games, support and a network of other players.
