The Shaw Charity Classic is a professional golf tournament in Canada on the Champions Tour, played at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club in Calgary, Alberta.

The 54-hole tournament was first played in 2013, and Rocco Mediate won with a 22-under 191, seven strokes ahead of runner-up Tom Byrum. A new course record was set by Bill Glasson at 62 (−9).[1][2]

The course was changed to par 70 in 2014, with a winner's share of $337,500.[3] Fred Couples chipped in for eagle on the par-5 final hole for a course record 61 (−9) and a total of 195 (−15), then waited for the leaders to finish. Billy Andrade followed with a 62 (−8) to force a two-man playoff, which began on the 18th hole. Couples laid up with a wedge and nearly holed his third shot with a sand wedge; he sank the one-foot (0.3 m) putt for birdie to win the title.[4][5]

Canyon Meadows opened 65 years ago in 1957 and is south of central Calgary, at an approximate average elevation of 1,095 metres (3,590 ft) above sea level.[6]
