One of a pair of twins and a native Haligonian, Miss Bauld was one of the best female golfers in the Maritimes in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Progressing from her first trophy in her initial year of playing for the electric title at her local club, she continued to improve and supply stiff competition for the other ladies.

Not only did she win the Halifax Gold Club Championships sixteen times (1914-1916, 1918-1926, 1928, 1935-1936, 1938), but also was victorious in the Maritime Golf Championships ten times (1920-1921, 1923-1928, 1932, 1935 and the Halifax County Championships twice (1926, 1927).

As a result of her phenomenal success the Maritime Ladies Golf Association presented her with the championship cup “as her name is engraved on the cup’s side in ten places she should receive this historic trophy as a keepsake…” Edith Bauld passed away in 1962 and was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1981.
