Ground-breaking schools project delivered in Prestwick, the Birthplace of the Open Championship

We’re delighted to have completed the Prestwick Schools Impact Assessment Document, bringing together all of the amazing work delivered at the four Primary Schools there in March this year. It was truly inspirational, teaching Primary 6 and 7 children who are at the same age as Young Tommy Morris was when he started to develop his interest in golf, running around the links course his father had built over the dunes at Prestwick. Look where following his dream took him in just a short space of time… youngest ever winner of the Open Championship, and 4 times his name on the winner’s list.

It’s also worth marking a milestone this month in the history of our charity. It was 5 years ago on the 15th April that our Founder, William Lumsden, decided that he had to go to St Andrews and to Old Tom Morris’ house overlooking the 18th green of the Old Course. He just felt that it was that day he needed to knock on the door and tell Mrs Sheila Walker (OTM’s great great grand daughter) about what he had unearthed about Young Tommy and his wife, Margaret Drinnen, from his home town of Whitburn. Maybe she and the family could throw some more light on their history?

He’d never been there.

He did not know the owner.

He just had a thought that this was important to do.

The rest is history.

Thoughts are things.
