Elsie was the eldest of six children - three girls and
three boys - born to Dr David Hamilton Kyle, a local GP, and Laura
Margaret Parr. The family initially lived in Queen's Gardens but
later moved to 16, The Links.
Elsie won the Scottish Ladies Amateur Championship at
Machrihanish in 1909 and repeated this feat at Nairn in 1910.
