Şahutoğlu began with hammer throw at the age of twelve promoted by her teacher of physical education. She is the holder of records at national level in several age categories. In May 2012, she improved her personal best from 70.09 m achieved in 2011 to 74.17 m breaking the national record that was held by Sviatlana Sudak Torun with 70.74 m set in July 2008 at Minsk, Belarus.

Tuğçe Şahutoğlu participated in the hammer throw event at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she finished 24th in the qualification round and failed to make the final.

Şahutoğlu tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol in May 2013 and was given a two-year ban from competition. The Turkish Athletics Federation named her in August 2013 as one of 31 Turkish athletes to have been sanctioned for a doping offence in that year. Her period of ineligibility lasted until 7 June 2015.
