It's been a waiting game for a short period of time, but the old clubhouse at the Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club is ready to be torn down.
"There's a lot of the community members that have voiced their melancholy opinions and certainly I shared in that feeling as well. It's sad to see something that's been here as long as it has come down," stated Greg Morrow, President of the Golf Course board.
"We've certainly done enough evaluation to know that it's the best thing for the club and for the golf course financially because it's going to help save us money in the long run," Morrow outlined. 
Morrow and the board has done some extensive planning on building additional buildings for storage, especially for those items that were stored in the new clubhouse. 
"We're doing some things as far as some of the storage requirements for some of the stuff that was in the old clubhouse that we bought a seacan. That stuff is now housed in there," Morrow mentioned. 
With the empty space, the board will have to decide on what will occupy that area. 
"There will be a lot of input from the community members and certainly our golf community. With that input we will find a direction with what we might use the space for."
It now looks like the demolition of the old clubhouse won't happen until Wednesday, March 1.
