The tradition continues,
16 years running and we're just getting started!

The Shivas Irons is a long standing golf tradition in the Valley of the Sun. After a 13 year run, to the credit of Michael Sheedy, the torch has been passed off to a new group of golfers to relive and encompass the traditions of years past.

The Shivas was originally created to bring together long-standing friends for a weekend of fun on the golf course. The format of the tournament is a 2-day tournament where you and a partner partake in scramble and best ball play. Throughout the two days, a cumulative score is kept and ultimately the tournament champion is decided.

The cost to play in the tournament will be $150/person. This price includes:
  • Dinner & Drinks at the Calcutta Auction
  • Range Balls
  • Greens Fee's
  • 1 Beverage Ticket
  • And a chance to be crowned the 2018 Shivas Irons Champion

Pair Up

Pick a partner of your choice and your 2 days of play will be scored against the other groups. Handicaps will be finalized the night of the calcutta auction.

Play Golf

Two days of play. Day 1 will consist of a scramble and Day 2 will be a best ball finish.

Compete for the Cup

Each year a predetermined percentage of the final pot from the Calcutta will be distributed to the Calcutta winners and the tournament champions will be awarded with the coveted "Shivas Cup".

2018 Schedule of Events

Day 1: Calcutta at 7:00pm
Calcutta Auction

The Calcutta will take place the night prior to the first round. In a Calcutta, golfers bid, auction style, on the team (1 pair) who they think will win the tournament (you can bid on your own team, too). All the money raised through the "auction" goes into the pot. At the end of the tournament, those who "won" the team that then won the tournament get a pre-determined payout from the auction pool.

Location: 6508 N. 85th Place Scottsdale AZ, 85250

Day 2: Shotgun Start at 1:00pm (Check-in at 12:00pm)
Scramble

The teams will play a scramble format. In scramble format, both players tee off, choose which shot is best and both play their next shots from the location of the best shot. Play continues in this fashion for all of the 18 holes.

Day 3: Shotgun Start at 7:30am
Best Ball

The teams will play best ball format. For the best ball format, each player hits his own ball throughout the round. However, at the end of each hole, the lowest score or “best ball” is used as the team score.

Awards Ceremony

After Sunday play, all groups are invited to the clubhouse where we will do the final tally and award the "Shivas Cup". Additionally, the winning Calcutta bidders will receive their earnings and we will award the Closest to the Pin and Long Drive contest winners.
