Cecil Leitch (1891 - 1977) was a British amateur golfer. One of three sisters who excelled at the game of golf. Leitch won 12 national titles as well as five French Ladies Amateurs and one Canadian Women's Amateur. Her opportunity to possibly win several more was interrupted for five years during World War I. When the Championship was restarted after the war, she won her second straight title then the following year made it three in a row. Leitch was able to reach the Championship finals on six occasions, and in 1926 won her fourth British title, a record she shares with Joyce Wethered.

Leitch retired having won 12 national titles plus she captured five French Ladies Amateurs and one Canadian Women's Amateur. She wrote two books on golf, the first titled Golf was published in 1922 in Philadelphia and London by J. B. Lippincott & Co. and the second titled Golf Simplified was published in London by Thornton Butterworth in 1924. [wiki]
