What's news in Crittenden County this week...

Crittenden County
Lions Club Fair | August 2-8
2015 Fair Catalog
Eddie King grew up as a teen in Indiana caddying for golfers and studying the game. A love affair quickly blossomed, and 60 years later, it was his passion for golf that carried him 1,900 miles back to the place his heart never left behind.

When he was faced with the opportunity to purchase Marion Country Club, it was the golf equivalent of a hole-in-one.

“There’s a peace here I can’t find anywhere else,” said King.

After a few months of hammering out a purchase agreement, the sale of the club was finalized in mid-January. King arrived in Marion from California last month to take a seat at his clubhouse desk as chairman and CEO.
