Businessman Shane Murphy previously of Cambridge who now resides within the Bahamas acquired Hannover Golf course in Rayleigh Essex in 2005, along with his enterprise companion Derrick Govey. The two businessman partnered to develop the golf course, Derrick Govey along with his background in constructing and Murphy along with his background in finance. The golf course was bought for £3,000,000 GBP and one other £1,000,000 GBP was spent on refurbishment. In 2007 Mr Murphy met his ex-wife Ms Zoe Murphy and he offered his shares in Lords Golf and Country Club to Mr Govey and left to pursue his telecoms profession. The membership has since been offered and been renamed The Rayleigh Club.
