Golfers of 1905 - Lady Margaret Scott - DM Arts 1989 - Framed Print - 16"H x 12"W

Lady Margaret Rachel Scott was a dominant player in early women's golf, who won the first three British Ladies Amateurs in 1893, 1894, and 1895.

Scott was a daughter of John Scott, 3rd Earl of Eldon. Several of her brothers were also golfers; Michael Scott won The Amateur Championship in 1933, Osmund Scott was the runner-up in the same tournament in 1905, and Denys Scott also played.

In her first two championship wins, Lady Margaret Scott beat Issette Pearson, the founder and first Secretary of the Ladies' Golf Union.

She won by 7 & 5 in 1893 and 3 & 2 in 1894, then beat Emma Lythgoe 5 & 4 in 1895.  Scott then retired from competitive golf.
