Under contract prior to auction!

After 52 years in the golf industry I have decided to retire and move to Florida. At the end of the year I will be selling the Crab Orchard Golf Club, residential lots, 4-bedroom home, and my condo at Internet-only Auction. Seller: Steve Heckel

ATTENTION: All interested parties please call or text Jason Wallingford at (314) 882-6971. Crab Orchard Golf Club was opened for play in 1959. Since that time, it has been one of the busiest courses in southern Illinois. Year after year it is voted the people’s choice for places to play. The course is fun if the correct tees are played depending on one’s skill level. It is a very good test of golf from the championship tees. One of the things that make this property so attractive is its location. The course encompasses 145± acres and is located 8 miles from Marion and 6 miles from Carbondale in Williamson county. The course is in Carterville next to John Logan College. Carterville has one of the best school systems in the state and it is truly the best place to locate.

A huge drawing card for the area and course is going to be the casino and water park at Walkers Bluff. This complex is in the process of being built and is less than 5 miles from the course. Included in the course property is a clubhouse that contains a restaurant and pro shop. We also have a teaching and club fitting center on our driving range along with a nice pavilion to accommodate outings. The property also contains a condo and a large home.

The maintenance area has 3 large buildings for storage and headquarters in our work area. The Heckel family has owned and operated the course for more than 50 years. The current owner and director of golf has been in the business for 52 years and plans on retiring at the end of the year.

Subject to Prior Sale.
