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.

2016 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 second consectuive year and Commonwealth's Alexandra Hilliard 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 Commonwealth Golf Club, Hilliard ended the 2016 season with a 70.92 average for her 12 counting rounds, contesting a total of 35 rounds around Victoria and a select few events interstate. Second place’s Olivia Kline (Kingston Heath) led the charge for the trophy for the first half of the year, only to have a Hilliard take her in the second half of 2016 after she returned three great rounds of 69, significantly improving her average.

Marshall said “it was great to see a young player in Alex take out the Susie Tolhurst Trophy'. A member of the Golf Victoria Elite Squad, Alex has continued her development as a player, and her strong scoring in the second half of 2016 was naturally a highlight.”

2016 Olympian Su Oh won the state rankings title in 2012 when it was previously named the Champions Trophy, and has made the successful transition into professional golf where she is now based on the LPGA Tour
