Place of Birth: Montreal, QC

Canadian women’s golf was truly blessed when, as a young lady, Margaret (Sutcliffe) Todd first picked up a golf club. A natural at the game, Victoria Golf Club’s Margaret Todd took three British Columbia Amateur titles, two Canadian Women’s Senior titles and played on a host of teams, including Canada’s first international team to Great Britain. But beyond the fairways Margaret gave back to the game three fold, through administrative work with the Canadian Ladies’ Golf Association. She served the CLGA in many capacities, including as National Director of Rules. Her most significant contribution has perhaps been in the realm of enhancing player development opportunities whenever possible.
