EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative black-and-white photograph, three intrepid lady golfers pose proudly after a strenuous battle for the Cheshire Ladies Championship at Wallasey Golf Club in April 1914. From left to right, we see the determined gaze of Miss Gladys Ravenscroft, the reigning American champion, her face etched with the focus and grit that had earned her the title. Next to her stands Miss Muriel Dodd, the reigning champion of England and Canada, her expression a mix of triumph and poise, a testament to her dominance on the fairways of her native lands. Lastly, Miss Doris Chambers, the champion of India, beams with a radiant smile, her victory in the subcontinent adding another feather to her cap as a formidable golfer. This photograph captures a moment in time when these three exceptional women made history in the world of golf. A time when the sport was still in its infancy for women, and the barriers to participation were significant. Yet, these intrepid ladies persevered, their love for the game driving them to compete against each other and against the odds. The image serves as a reminder of their groundbreaking achievements and the pivotal role they played in shaping the future of women's golf. The photograph, taken in 1914, is a testament to the enduring spirit of these remarkable women, their unwavering dedication to their sport, and their place in the annals of golfing history. The image, from the Mary Evans Picture Library, is a precious piece of history that continues to inspire and captivate golf enthusiasts and historians alike.
