About The Shivas Irons Society

The Shivas Irons Society is dedicated to furthering golf as a mindful pursuit and as a tool for personal growth and development. We inspire, connect and support all who are interested in exploring the transformational aspects of the game in the spirit of Michael Murphy’s 1972 novel “Golf In The Kingdom,” the original inspiration for the Society and one of the best selling and most influential golf books of all time. (Buy your own copy of "Golf in the Kingdom" here.)

Our supporters believe that golf is a better, more rewarding game when played in a way that’s intentionally conscious and respectful of its core roots and values – a style of play that Shivas Irons himself would recognize and endorse, and one that is often at odds with much of what the modern game has become.

Our programs provide opportunities to reconnect with the original spirit of the game and present golf as a life-long, mastery-based pursuit that’s ideally suited for personal development and creative expression, the positive benefits of which have little to do with a golfer’s score relative to par, their latest quick-fix swing thoughts, or the clubs they play with.

The Shivas Irons Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
