The late Donald Cameron, an ex Scottish
Internationalist and a member of Kirkintilloch Golf Club, formed the league
He presented a trophy to be played for annually and invited the
following clubs to participate: Balmore, Bishopbriggs, Cawder, Douglas Park
Hayston, Kirkintilloch, Lenzie
and Milngavie. In 1958 the following clubs were admitted to the league: Bearsden, Dullatur, Glasgow,
and Hilton Park. In the sixties the leagues' compliment of clubs was complete with the addition of Sandyhills and Windyhill.
In 1970 Cawder Golf Club, the then holders, mislaid the Donald Cameron
League Trophy and a new trophy was purchased,
but, surprise, surprise,
the original trophy turned up in their trophy cabinet. This led to the
league being split, in 1970,
into two divisions of 7 clubs. The A Division
playing for the Donald Cameron Trophy and the B Division
playing for the
new trophy called The Campsie Trophy.
In 1947 Milngavie Golf Club presented a wooden spoon to the league, to
be presented to the club finishing with the least
amount of points in B Division. Milngavie's aim was to never win it.
The league has been administrated by the following secretaries:
|1947 - 1955
|1956 - 1972
|1973 - 2004
