The Scott Shively Memorial Tournament is an annual scramble-style golf tournament honoring the memory of our son, friend and world traveler, Scott. Growing up, Scott loved to ski, hike, play basketball and golf. Scott grew up with a thirst for knowledge and a curiosity of the world around him. This led him to move to Boulder, Colorado to attend college at the University of Colorado obtaining a degree in international relations. Throughout his time at CU, his curiosity continued, leading him to focus on social justice, international travel, and hand-on learning throughout his travels. This helped feed his love of travel, seeing sites across the world, studying abroad and obtaining his Masters in International Political Theory at the University of Edinburgh Scotland - We're pretty sure he chose Edinburgh for the golf courses...
After graduation, Scott continued to explore, finding his way to China where Scott taught English and eventually met and married his wife, a testament to his connection to his new home abroad.
Throughout Scott's adventures, his family stayed close. His parents, Bruce and Bonnie, traveled across the world chasing Scott on his adventures, always packing the golf clubs, playing some of the oldest and well-known courses across the world while spending time with their son. After Scott's passing, golf came to the forefront as a way to continue to honor Scott.
With that, the Scott Shively Memorial Tournament started in 2014 as in Scott's memory. A great way for Scott's friends and family to stay connected, have fun, and serve as a fundraising vehicle for the newly created Scott Shively Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship to support CU students studying abroad.
Join us, Wednesday August 8 at The Golf Club at Redmond Ridge, play some golf, have some fun and raise some money for some CU students excited to learn throughout the world!
