In the Beginning:

women-golfers

In 1933 when British Columbia became a branch of the CLGU, three ladies from Victoria were elected to serve on the BC Branch as well as to carry on the business of ladies golf in Victoria. Mrs. Margaret Sayward-Wilson of Royal Colwood was 2nd Vice President, Mrs. B.P. Philbrick of Victoria Golf Club was Handicap and Pars Manager, and Mrs. Walter Parry of Victoria Golf Club was Honorary Secretary-Treasurer.

In December 1934, Captains and Vice Captains from the 4 clubs in Victoria were invited to attend the first meeting of the Victoria Division at Victoria Golf Club. (Royal Colwood Golf Club, Victoria Golf Club, Uplands Golf Club and Gorge Vale Golf Club).
