The Phoenix Cup  is a match play team international, which showcases the unique position of golf as one of the few sports where players of all skills and abilities can play together on a level playing field, because of the golf handicap system.


The inaugural Phoenix Cup was held when golfers from Canada and Scotland got together to arrange a multi-nation and friendly match play competition, at the Chippewa Creek Golf Club in Hamilton, Ontario.  We in Scotland, pulled together a ‘Rest of the World’ team from the likes of Australia, Eire, South Africa, Germany, France and the Home Nations and travelled to Canada to compete against a squad from across North America.


The Phoenix Cup, as the worlds first fully inclusive team international, became so successful, that the SDGC merged all its other team events, such as the World Cup, Spanish, Masters and other internationals, under that one format.  Now based firmly on the Ryder/Solheim Cup, where disabled golf groups from around the world are invited annually, to bring together teams to compete and continue to develop and promote  the sport for players of any age, with any type of disability, the Phoenix Cup is still the only pan-Disability match play team golf event in the world.


Such is the strength and draw of the Phoenix Cup, that the next three years events are already arranged:  The 28th Phoenix is a 4-Nations team competition between England, Scotland, The USA & Wales and will be played from Sunday 14 to Tuesday 16 August at the Forest of Arden Resort, Birmingham.  The 29th Phoenix in 2023, is a USA v Europe match being held just North of Los Angeles in the USA and then, the 30th Phoenix Cup in October 2024 will be hosted by the St Andrews Links Trust, over the New, Old and Jubilee Golf Courses, in St Andrews, between Europe & The USA!
