PARK CITY, UTAH (May 16, 2012) – Park Meadows Country Club, Park City’s premier country club, named Kamas resident Eric Karshner its new director of marketing and member services. Karshner, 30, has served as the country club’s clubhouse services manager and event coordinator since 2005.

“We’re very excited to make Eric a part of the Park Meadows management team,” General Manager Kathy Volz said. “He’s the best of both worlds: he’ll bring fresh ideas to his new position, and from his work at the club and around Park City, he’s a familiar face to our members. He knows what it takes to make our members – and any prospective members – feel at home at Park Meadows.”
