                        appreciate your kindness and generosity which helps people like me pursue their
                        college dream. The Ouimet Scholarship I received assisted me with my school
                        expenses and without it I would not have been able to attend my first choice college.”

A Message from the President

                                                                                            October 2018
                      Dear Ouimet Fund Friends,
                            I am proud to share that this past year has continued our steady and wonderful
                      growth pattern. While this is very rewarding, we are at the same time embarking
                      on a comprehensive strategic planning process to enhance our mission. The board
                      will be addressing ways to do even more for our future Scholars as their need grows
                      so rapidly in this era of dramatic college tuition increases.
                           In 2018-2019, we celebrate our 70th year with many ways by which we can
                      impact the lives of our Scholars. Most importantly, with your help, Scholar awards
                      increased to $2.2 Million, a $200,000 increase over last year. This increase is our
                      largest ever, and represents growth of 38% in four years. Our thriving endowed
                      scholarship program is again a major catalyst. A total of $800,000, or 36% of our
                      awards, will come from the yield on our 148 endowments. As we go to press we will

 committed to         member of the original class of scholars from 1949. Trustee Bob McDonald and his
                      family have endowed the Bob and Elaine McDonald Family Scholarship. The Fund

 and growing The      The total since then is a tremendous $36 Million to 5,900 students!
                           As The Fund grows, we also see a continued high number of annual scholarship
 Fund, and will       applications. Over the past four years applications have increased 38%, putting
 work to send more    great pressure on our fundraising. We have also seen great increases in the number
                      of colleges our students attend (164), female scholars (70), minority scholars (29),
 deserving students   and inner-city scholars (67). We are happy that our 326 financial scholars this year
 to college."         have an average annual financial award of $6,548, which translates to four-year
                      assistance of approximately $26,200. However, our goal has always been to fund
                      as much of the “unmet need” as possible and we still hover in the 40% range. Five
                      million dollars of total unmet need is a huge hurdle. As one of our directors said
                      recently, “We have a lot of great kids who still need a lot of help.”
                          Also, helping fuel our scholarship increase has been growth in our Club
                      Relations, Golf Marathon, Annual Fund and Alumni Donations. Each of those
                      programs are critical to our continued success.
                           This past year, we were proud to present Jim Furyk with our 22nd Francis Ouimet
                      Award for Lifelong Contributions to Golf at our Annual Banquet. It was a wonderful
                      night, and one each of the attendees won't soon forget. I’m delighted to announce
                      that Hall of Famer and NBC golf broadcast commentator Johnny Miller will be our
                      2019 honoree on April 11 at the Sheraton Boston. Our dinner has been the largest
                      golf dinner in the U.S., the award one of golf’s most prestigious and our 2019 event
                      with Mr. Miller should be a great occasion to kick off the season. The Banquet is our
                      prime event for spreading the message of our mission and showcasing our Scholars,
                      and we know Johnny is excited to be part of it.

ANNUAL IMPACT - Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund
Throughout the history of the Ouimet Banquet, a special
         highlight has always been the introduction of representatives of
         Mr. Ouimet’s and Eddie Lowery’s families. Sadly, Mr. Ouimet’s two
         daughters, Barbara McLean and Janice Salvi, passed away in the
         last year. We also lost three Ouimet Fund Trustees – Bill Foley, Ray
         LaJoie, and Dixon Sykes. They and the other many friends shown
         in our Memorial Donations section will all be greatly missed.
             The future of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund is bright.
         Through your generosity and the hard work of the Ouimet Staff,
         Board of Directors, alumni, corporate partners and volunteers,
         we remain committed to strengthening and growing the Fund to
         send more deserving young women and men to college.
             Thank you very much for your support and best wishes to you,
         your family and friends as the new year approaches.                      President Jim Blue with Ouimet Scholar Eileen Lent '20, at the 2018 Investing

         Ouimet Chairs and Club Leadership
              We thank the individual Ouimet Chairs who work tirelessly throughout the year to help maximize the partnership among
         their club, its members, and the Ouimet Fund. The Ouimet Chairs act as a conduit for all of the information flowing back
         and forth between the Club membership, the scholarship recipients and the Ouimet Fund. They work closely with the Golf
         Professional, Club Manager, Course Superintendent and the rest of the club leadership to help educate their fellow members
         on the impact that they are making, and all of the ways individuals can get
         involved. They also play a key role in recruiting and educating new Ouimet
         applicants, and many participate in the Scholarship Interview process.
         Key Club Personnel
              At each club, we have key people on staff, like general managers,
         superintendents, caddie masters, and head professionals who work closely
         with the Ouimet Chair and others from the club’s leadership to promote all
         the Ouimet programs. These are the people who will hire, train and mentor
         the young golf employees through college and beyond. We are thankful
         to have their help to identify and realize the great potential in these young
         people and guide them to the scholarship.
                                                                                           The hardworking young men and women at your clubs make up

               The great tradition of the Ouimet Bag Tag has been in place since 1955, and has consistently been a major source of revenue
         for the Ouimet Fund. We currently have nearly 80 clubs committed to this annual program, all of which see the majority of their
         members not only support, but get behind the efforts of the Ouimet Chair in promoting the opportunity to potential scholars.
         Each member at all of our clubs receives a "Sponsor Tag" to show that they support the Ouimet Fund. Many clubs chose the
         option to get involved at a higher level by joining the “Ouimet 100” program, which started during the Centennial celebration,
         and increased the impact to $100 per member each spring.
         Ouimet Club Leadership Outing
              The second edition of this biennial event took place at Charles River Country Club in May. The aim of the event is to bring
         together leaders from our supporting clubs, not only to thank them for all of their efforts in promoting The Fund’s many programs,
         but also to network and learn from each other’s experiences. Before we hit the first tee ball, Ouimet Vice President and Club
         Relations Chair Duncan Gratton thanked all who attended and commented on the vital role of the Ouimet Chair. He went on to
         introduce two of our top Ouimet Chairs: John Dolan of The Kittansett Club and Bill Hanlon of Marshfield Country Club. Each
         shared some of their success stories and gave tips to help others elevate their programs. This event has been a great tool in
8        keeping these ambassadors of The Fund educated and as active participants in our programs.

                                              Golf Club on their selection as 2018 Ouimet Chairs of the Year. Kathy, a member at
                                              Cape Cod National, and Mike, the general manager of Cape Cod National, work closely
                                         together in a very successful and supportive Ouimet program. Both Mrs. Guillard and Mr.
                                         Walker have represented The Fund at Cape Cod National for many years, and the program
                                         has become exemplary.
                                                   Cape Cod National is a relatively new club, but has one of the top caddie programs
                                              on Cape Cod with over 60 regular caddies. Mrs. Guillard takes great pride in encouraging
                                              the caddies to apply for the Ouimet Scholarship, and in 2018 the club has eleven
                                              students receiving Ouimet assistance. Cape Cod National caddies also wear bibs with the
                                              famed “Francis & Eddie” image
                                              prominently displayed. The Club
                                              is at the forefront of supporting

             or the second year in a row, the Ouimet Fund was thrilled to host our Golf Marathon at Juniper Hill Golf Course, a beautiful
             and fun 36-hole layout. On a day that reached nearly 100 degrees, The Fund welcomed 44 all-volunteer participants and
             their "caddies" (cart drivers) just after sunrise, and play kicked off bright and early. Over 5,200 holes were played, all with
        the goal of raising as much money for Ouimet Scholarships as possible. And raise money they did; our Golf Marathon is the
        culmination of weeks of crowdfunding by our participants, and we are thrilled to report that the total surpassed $350,000!
             The event was a huge success for The Fund, and one that could not be accomplished without the hard work of all 44 teams
        & participants. With that said, we would be remiss if we did not mention some of our top participants, which again feature
        dedicated members of the Ouimet community. Tedesco Country Club’s longtime Ouimet Chair (and Ouimet Alumnus) Michael
        Zmetrovich, ’90 and his son, Oliver '22, were the top fundraisers this year, and we thank them for many years of commitment
        to the Golf Marathon. Another consistent Marathon team, Wellesley Country Club, placed second in fundraising and more than
        doubled their total from 2017 – so thank you to Wellesley fundraiser Rick Spillane '78, and Marathoner Charlie Greenwood
        for making that happen! Marathon stalwart Matt Alwin and Dedham Country & Polo Club placed third, which is another great
        showing for a club and Marathoner who support this event year after year.
        Event Enhancements & Growth
               The day is really a golf festival, and acts as a culmination of roughly six weeks of fundraising either through your golf club,
         or by using an online platform like you’d see with other crowdfunding events. This year, we took the online aspect of the event

                                “I want to sincerely thank you for supporting the Ouimet Scholarship Fund. I have been
                                 a Ouimet Scholar over the last four years and this would not be possible without your
                                 support. As a Ouimet Scholar, I have had some unique experiences that other students
                                 would not get. For instance, I have had the opportunity to caddy three Pro-Ams at the
                                 Dell Technologies Championship, I have made close contacts with business professionals
                                 and CEOs, as well as the opportunity to participate in the Ouimet Golf Marathon.
                                 Furthermore, the Ouimet Fund has made it financially possible to attend the University of
                                 Notre Dame and study to become a chemical engineer.”

“The impact the Ouimet Scholarship has had on my education and general outlook
                   on life is hard to put into words. Receiving this scholarship has helped lessen the
                   financial burdens of a private education and has been able to provide me with comfort
                   and ease as I continue pursuing my education. Thank you again for your investment in
                   this scholarship and for seeing potential in aspiring students like me.”

                   attend Eckerd College and without it, I would likely not be studying what I love at
                   such a great school. I cannot express my gratitude enough, and I hope to continue

              "During my first summer as a caddy, I couldn’t help but notice the Ouimet Scholarship
               donor bag tags on every bag I carried. As an incoming 8th grader, I had no idea what
               they were about. It wasn’t until this past year that I realized those bag tags would
               help me more than I could have ever imagined. I believe that I have one of the best
               summer jobs, and I am extremely lucky to benefit from a scholarship fund that is as well
               supported as the Ouimet Fund.”

         Third Year Brings Changes, Growth to Green Hill Program
              The Ouimet Fund was proud to continue growing its inner-city Scholar initiative by assisting the Caddie Project at
         Worcester’s Green Hill Golf Course for a third straight year. “We will continue to focus on increasing our inner-city Scholar
         participation, and we see the Green Hill program as a great way to start young people in caddying, while also developing a path
         to eventually becoming Ouimet Scholars,” said Ouimet Fund President Jim Blue.
              For a third straight year, people within the Ouimet Fund, including staff, Bill Kelleher and Jack McDaniel worked to push the
         Green Hill program to grow, while focusing on effectiveness and efficiency. With the daily work of Matthew Moison, and more
         specifically new caddie master Fitzgerald Pucci '18, the program showed a third straight year of promise. Fourteen young men
         and women were involved on a weekly basis at Green Hill this year, some of whom had never been on a golf course before. They
         learned the ins and outs of golf, caddying, course maintenance, and had weekly life skills lessons. Ouimet Alumnus Fitzgerald
         Pucci, a recent graduate of UMass-Amherst, excelled in his first year as Caddie Master, and was instrumental in these caddie training
         sessions, as well as acting as the contact between Green Hill, the Ouimet Fund, and the local Worcester area partners. Messrs.
         Moison, Brent, Kelleher and McDaniel are excited about the prospects of the program into 2019 and beyond.
