Country club hires retired principal as greenskeeper
Marion Country Club’s new head greenskeeper is no stranger to maintaining its golf course.
Todd Gordon, former superintendent of Marion-Florence school district, started helping maintain the golf course a year ago.
It’s a change from the job he retired from, but Gordon said he enjoys the work.
“He worked for us a little bit last year,” country club treasurer Gene Winkler said. “This year he started out working part-time, then when Joe Lovelady left, he took over. He’s doing a really good job.”
Lovelady left in mid-June, Winkler said.
“I think he’s down at Augusta,” Winkler said.
Joe’s wife Karlene Lovelady said Joe now works for Great Life Golf, a company that owns several golf courses. Their reasons for leaving Marion include ongoing litigation with a family member.
