As some off you may have already heard Caryl Campbell died peacefully at the Muirfield Nursing Home on Friday 28th July. Caryl was the longest serving secretary of ELLCGA having given 17 years to the role culminating with our 75th Anniverary. More recently she held the roles of Vice-President and President adding a further 6 years in total to her service to the County.
Caryl was for many years ‘East Lothian’ both within East Lothian and in county golf generally. No event involving ELLCGA would be complete without Caryl.
The County was a great source of joy to Caryl who valued the fun times and many friendships she made through her involvement with the County at all levels. She also took great pride in the County and in representing the County at various events over the years. During her time as secretary Caryl was concerned that ELLCGA lacked a badge or logo when all the other Counties seemed to have one. At Caryl’s bidding her late husband Ian came up withe the familiar wheatsheaf design that you will see on this website and on all our County clothing.
Caryl suffered poor health in recent years but even after the first of her strokes she was still the perfect hostess and loved to recall the excitement when individual players and the team encountered such success in the 1990’s and the fun she and they had.
Caryl will be much missed by all who knew her.
