Dorothy Campbell, North Berwick's

first lady superstar

Until Catriona (Lambert) Matthew came along, North Berwick's most famous golfing daughter was Dorothy Campbell, writes Colin Farquharson.
Scottish titles, British titles, American titles, Canadian titles: 14 of them in all ... Dorothy was the first truly international lady amateur golf star.
Her long and so successful golfing career was over by then but she still died tragically in an unexplained railway accident in the Unites States in March 1945 when she was in her 60s.
Kirkwoodgolf will be recalling the life and times of Dorothy Campbell in the coming week.
