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.
Margaret Stewart Cup
18 Holes Gross
Miss Stewart was prominent in WA golf for more than twenty years, and was a member of the first Interstate Team in 1935. She continued to play State golf, and was Captain of the State Team in 1948. She played Pennants, and was a member of the Executive for a number of years, becoming Chairman of the Scratch Score Committee in 1953. She was very much aware that there was no organised competition at that time for Metropolitan Bronze players, and in 1954 moved that a Bronze Championship be introduced, for which she would donate the perpetual trophy. This was first played in 1955. After she retired from the Executive she played in and won the Veterans Cup Gross Event.
