Elisabeth (Lib) Connor had a remarkable golfing career that extended over a period of 50 years. She was a highly skilled and durable player who was ranked either at, or near, the top of all competitions for the duration of her career. She attained the highest levels of achievement in ladies golf and set standards of deportment that inspired her colleagues to look to Lib Connor as the perfect example of how to conduct oneself on and off the golf course.

As a member of Ashburn Golf Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia, her first provincial award came in 1938 when she was runner-up in the Nova Scotia Ladies Championship. By 1948, Connor’s game had escalated to the point where she was named as one of the top five female golfers in Canada. She was the Nova Scotia champion in 1950 and placed second five times before 1973. Connor added two Maritime championships and finished second on another occasion.

She was a four-time member of the Nova Scotia team at the Maritime Championships and a nine-time team member of the Nova Scotia Amateur team. In total, Connor represented Nova Scotia 19 times on both the provincial and Maritime teams at the Canadian Ladies Golf Championship. Elisabeth Connor was elected to the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1993.
