It Began with a Generous Gift
“This is a great day in my life to see the dream of Twin Run come true,” said Dwight J. Thomson on June 22, 1963, as he participated in the dedication of the Hamilton municipal golf course he made possible.
“I don’t have to tell you of the tremendous debt of Champion to Hamilton, the city of our founding. I’m happy to be able to repay the community in a small way for the good things that have happened to us since 1893,” said Thomson, who had donated the land off Eaton Road in May 1960.
Thomson–son of Logan G. Thomson and grandson of Peter G. Thomson–described the gift of 220 acres–valued at $400,000–as “a memorial to the past presidents of Champion, whose desire always was, as mine is now, to contribute to the well-being and growth of Hamilton.”
Dwight Thomson joined Champion in 1938 at the Hamilton mill and was chairman of the board when he resigned in 1965. The Twin Run gift had been part of his Contentment Farm, a 460-acre tract, which had been the home of his prize herd of polled Herefords. The property conveyed to the city included a two-story residence, a one-story guest house, a main barn and other farm buildings. The Thomson residence became the first clubhouse for the course.
