Flora Brownfield, ALGU, Commemoration Cups
18 Holes Nett. First round of event.
Presented to WA in 1947 by the ALGU because it was believed that distance and cost would prevent our ever taking part in the Australian Championships. It was originally played for as an 18 Hole trophy during the WA State Championships but became associated with the 36 Hole Silver Event in 1960.
27 Holes Gross. Instigated by the WALGU to commemorate the Commonwealth Games 1962.
Flora Brownfield Cup:
The Nett trophy for the 27 Hole Silver event. The event developed out of a Low Markers competition which ran over several rounds. In 1960 it was changed to a 36 hole event which would incorporate the ALGU Cup for 18 holes Nett for Silver players. The trophy for the 36 Holes Nett was donated by Mrs Flora Brownfield. It has since been changed to a 27 hole event.
Mrs Brownfield served on the WALGU for 25 years during which time she was a Trustee of the International Fund. She also served on the Scratch Score Committee. She was a Club and State Champion and State player both as Flora McQualter and after her marriage as Flora Brownfield.
The Commemoration and Flora Brownfield Cup events became 27 Hole events in 2000 due to low numbers entering.
