Margaret Todd

Margaret Sutcliffe joined the Uplands Golf Club, as a junior in 1936 and a year later, now Mrs. Jack Todd, became a member of the Victoria Golf Club. In 1939 she won the club championship for the first of 14 times. In 1940 she added her initial Victoria & District title, which she went on to claim 10 times. After the war and a hiatus to raise her family, she was back playing near "scratch" and won three consecutive B.C. Amateur Ladies titles, seven Jasper Totem and three Empress competitions. In the 1950's Margaret qualified for both the Canadian and U.S. championships and gained the first of five selections to Canada's International Golf team playing in Britain, Australia and Argentina. In the 1970's, Mrs. Todd, competing in the senior ladies, twice won titles in the City, Provincial and Canadian championships. Throughout her career she captained the B.C. Ladies and B.C. Senior Woman's team on 16 occasions. Her administrative accomplishments, since the 1960's, include Victoria and B.C. appointments to the national and international level. Margaret has been honoured as a Life Member of the Victoria Golf Club, inducted into the B.C. Sports Halls of Fame, the B.C. and Canadian Golf Halls of Fame.
