It is a measure of how highly Dick Wilson was regarded in the Americas that he was the one chosen to lay out the original 18 holes at Lyford Cay. Money has never been an issue with this exclusive private enclave located at the western end of New Providence in the Bahamas; the best for man the job would have been brought in whatever the expense. Recently Rees Jones was brought in for some necessary refurbishing. Canadian billionaire E. P. Taylor established the course with an unparalleled level of privacy that is maintained to this day. Henry Ford had a place here, as did the Aga Khan and Prince Rainier; so now do Sean Connery and Joe Lewis of Tavistock Cup fame. The course was designed for relaxed enjoyment rather than tournament golf. Lyford Cay is an experience of how the other half - or rather the other one percent - lives.
