Mr Roger Clague
LADY CAPTAIN 2018
Mrs Caroline Reed-Clayton
I took up golf with my husband Paul after a family holiday in Chicago in 2003. We were lucky enough to go to Medina Golf Club for lunch and I was immediately hooked by the whole set up of golf. When we got back, we started playing at the Warren and had some lessons. After a year playing the municipal courses, we joined Bidston and my (mild) obsession with golf took hold.
I work Wednesday to Friday at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and I can honestly say, I love my job. I’m very fortunate to have a great deal of support from my family, friends and colleagues which enables me to play a lot of golf. I am proud to have reached my goal of a handicap of 12 but need to learn how to play to it now! Our famous camaraderie at Bidston means you will always get a game and I have gained a lot of very good friends from all sections of the club who I know I can rely on to keep me well grounded. As with each year, I always look forward to the season and I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2018. I couldn’t do any of this without the unwavering support of my beloved Paul

Lady Captain 2017
Mrs O Roose Jones
Ron my husband was a member at Bidston, so in 1991 I decided “if you can’t beat them I’ll join them”
Following the death of our grandson Sam in 1990 aged 3yrs, in 1992 I was asked to become a Trustee of the Claire House Appeal to build a Children’s Hospice. With Claire House open and a teenage wing added on I resigned as Trustee. However, I still continue to fundraise, give talks, and volunteer in many different roles and it also gave me a little more time to enjoy my golf
