Adele Ludeman Trophy – Champion of Champions
Best Sand Green Player (36 Holes Gross)
Donated by Mrs. Adele Ludeman of Bolgart who, when President of Bolgart Club donated a trophy to be played for by the Champions of all nearby clubs, as a Champion of Champions event. Later when she was President of the Avon Valley Association the competition was extended to an Open Championship for Sand Green players, using the same trophy. Ultimately when the Provincial Championship for all players of + -20 was inaugurated, it was decided to retain a separate 36 hole event for sand green players and Mrs. Ludeman agreed to allow her Cup to become the Perpetual Trophy and she established a fund to provide an annual replica. Mrs Ludeman was a delegate to Council and has been actively involved with golf over many years.

This is a painting by Mrs. Margaret Shenton of Quairading. It was given to the Avon Valley Ladies Golf Association for presentation to Women’s Golf as a perpetual trophy for the Provincial, to be retained in the office and so provide decoration for the (then) newly acquired office. Mrs. Carol Comley provided the trophy, but it could only be received from an Association.
Dorrie Smallpage Trophy – Junior 36 Holes Nett
Eastern Districts Delegate for 23 years until 1983/84. She died in 1990.
She was a great stalwart of golf and one of the longest-serving members. This is a trophy for the best nett 36 holes (Junior) at the Provincial. Mrs. Smallpage was most interested in encouraging Junior golf and felt that the nett trophy would be within the range of a greater number of players, and would, therefore, encourage new players to enter. She provided the trophy for the original Provincial at York in 1984 and gave a sum of $280 as a trust to provide an annual replica.
