Susie Tolhurst Trophy (Women's Rankings)

In 2012, Golf Victoria introduced an equivalent Ivo Whitton competition for women, the Women’s Champions Trophy. This was then renamed in 2016 to the Susie Tolhurst Trophy. A schedule of 26 events was coordinated for the inaugural year including traditionally conducted women’s events such as the Women’s Autumn and Spring Country Tournaments as well as a number of existing Ivo Whitton events that have introduced women’s sections to provide weekend competition opportunities.

To qualify for the Susie Tolhurst Trophy and achieve a final average, a player must play a minimum of 12 rounds in events with Susie Tolhurst Trophy status.

2017 Susie Tolhurst Rankings - (Final Results)

The winners of the State Rankings trophies have been announced, with Kyle Michel etching his name on the Ivo Whitton trophy for the third consectuive year and Kono Matsumoto claiming her maiden Susie Tolhurst trophy victory. 

The Susie Tolhurst Trophy is awarded to the female player with the lowest stroke scoring average from sanctioned events on the Golf Victoria rankings calendar and was re-named in 2016 in honour of Victoria’s Susie Tolhurst, a pioneer in women’s golf in the state during the late 1920’s to mid-1930’s. 

A member at the Victoria Golf Club, Matsumoto ended the 2017 season with a 68.25 average for her 12 counting rounds, contesting a total of 21 rounds around Victoria. Matsumoto held off fellow Victoria Golf Club member Stephanie Bunque who fell just short in second place with an average of 68.67. 

Marshall said “it was great to see a young player in Kono take out the Susie Tolhurst Trophy. A member of the Golf Victoria Elite Squad, Kono has continued her development as a player and looks destined for a bright future."
