The Shivas Irons Society Games of the Links
September 22-27, 2013
Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon
Join Fred Shoemaker, Jo Hardy, and SIS Host Steve Cohen for our annual week-long gathering in celebration of the magic and mystery of the "gemme".
The Bandon Dunes Resort provides the perfect opportunity for a complete and unique golfing experience on some of the most beautiful and challenging golf holes to be found anywhere in the world. This incredible venue is home to Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails, the recently completed and much praised Old Macdonald... and now, Bandon Preserve, a brand new 13-hole par 3 masterpiece to provide one more fantastic golfing option. Comprising as a group the most acclaimed golf courses to be built anywhere in the past fifty years, these magnificent walking-only* true links courses provide the perfect setting to celebrate the spirit of Shivas!
We will begin most mornings with a quiet meditation, or some other contemplative activity designed to quiet the mind and open our hearts and our spirits to the upcoming adventures of the day.
We will play golf each day with a schedule that will allow ample time to gather for a further exploration of the mysteries of the game on the practice tee or in group sessions.
