Britannia rules the links

Here’s a photograph from the May 27 1930 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:


The 1930 British Ladies Amateur tournament (as it was then known) was played at the Formby Golf Club in Formby, Merseyside. (It still exists.)

Diana Fishwick married Air Commodore Alfred Critchley in 1938; she became his third wife. Their son, Bruce Critchley, became a British golf commentator.

The loser of the final match, Glenna Collett, has appeared in this blog before.
