Movie on course to boost visitor numbers

VisitScotland hopes a movie biopic of two famous Scottish-born golfing greats could inspire more people to visit North of the Border.

The national tourism organisation believes Tommy’s Honour, which was released in Scottish cinemas on 7 July, could lead to a surge in people hitting fairways across the country. It will be out in the rest of the UK on 14 July.

Directed by Jason Connery and based on the critically acclaimed book by Kevin Cook, the film tells the story of a father and son from St Andrews who have a difficult personal relationship but who go on to change the face of the game. It was filmed in various locations in Fife, East Lothian, Midlothian and the Scottish Borders.

Young Tom Morris is considered the first true superstar of golf, winning The Open four times before he was 21, while Old Tom was not only a four-time Open winner but he is also credited with designing or influencing around 60 courses throughout the UK & Ireland, many of which are still considered among the world’s best.

Probably Old Tom’s greatest legacy is the Old Course at St Andrews, where he created the famous first and 18th holes, the most famous starting and finishing holes in golf.

To celebrate the film’s release, VisitScotland has produced a map highlighting the filming locations in Fife and East Lothian as well as a trip planner detailing some of the best Old Tom Morris-designed golf courses around the country.

In addition, the national tourism organisation supported a behind-the-scenes documentary of the film, which also includes top US golfer Jordan Spieth playing with hickory clubs similar to those used by the Morrises.
