The Australian Women's Amateur Foursomes Championships are open to players of all ages, and is contested over 36-holes foursomes stroke play.
Although unsure of the official commencement of the Australian Women’s Amateur Foursomes Championship, records seem to suggest the event began in 1907. In 1959, a lady by the name of Lolita Marriott asked the Australian Ladies Golf Union (now Golf Australia) to accept a trophy in memory of her mother, who was an ardent supporter of Australian golf and an administrator at her home club of Yarra Yarra in Victoria.
Since that time, the winning pair in the Australian Women’s Amateur Foursome Championship has been awarded the Nance Marriott Salvers.

Distance Measuring Devices:
Please be advised that the following Local Rule will now be in effect for the Championship:
In this competition a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect their play (eg gradient, windspeed, temperature, etc), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.
