PNGA Hall of Famer Margaret Todd celebrates 100th birthday
Margaret Todd of Victoria, B.C. was inducted by the PNGA into the Pacific Northwest Golf Hall of Fame in 2011. On May 31, 2018, she celebrated her 100th birthday, and is the only Hall of Fame member to have reached the century mark.
Todd represented Canada in the 1951 Curtis Cup matches against the U.S., the 1953 Commonwealth championships in England, and was a three-time captain of the Canadian National Team. She won three BC Women’s Amateur championships (1947, 1948 and 1949) and was runner-up five times. She won the BC Senior Women’s Amateur in 1975 and 1976, and the Canadian Senior Women’s Amateur in 1976 and 1977.
In 1973, Todd became the first female golfer inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame. She is also an inductee of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame (1997), Victoria Sports Hall of Fame (1997) and Golf Hall of Fame of BC (2001).
The PNGA Super Senior Women’s Amateur Championship trophy is named after Todd.
In 2010, Todd donated $100,000 to her alma mater, the University of Victoria (B.C.), for the creation of a women’s golf athletic scholarship.
Well played, Margaret.
