Before John Williams McGrath had reached 40 years of age, he had worked for Laurance Rockefeller, Charles Fraser and John W. Galbreath, planning and building the modern resort as we know it today. This is the story of a rock solid operator behind the scenes, and his low-key manner and fiscal conservatism were often in stark contrast to the flamboyant and charismatic chief executives with whom he would either serve or partner. John was a senior executive with Charles Fraser, Laurance Rockefeller, Mark McCormack, and later Will McFarlane. He was the first employee of Charles Fraser in the development of the famed Sea Pines development at Hilton Head. His teaming with golf course designer, Francis “Frank” Duane featured sensitive planning and common sense in designing the precursor of the eco-friendly golf course. This would lead to a full-fledged partnership to design and build golf courses with Arnold Palmer and set the stage for the golf course of the future.
