Dorothy grew up in the Scots medical world. A companion portrait by Orpen indicates that she was a keen golfer at a time when, following the example of Margot Asquith, it became fashionable for young women to practice the sport. There were a number of important courses near the Stiles’ family home at Whatton Lodge, Gullane in East Lothian. She was one of Gullane Ladies Golf Club's most prominent members. She was Hon Sec in 1913 aged 18, Captain in 1929-30 and again in 1947-48. She was made Honorary Member in 1972. Dolly's status at the club can be judged from her being the only person to have been Captain twice and that the companion portrait was used for the cover of the GLGC centenary history.
