Beeville Country Club members were alternately sad and happy to see this bulldozer go to work in earnest Friday morning to remove what was left of the clubhouse after the disastrous fire that destroyed both the building and it's contents in April. Following lengthy negotiations with the insurance company, architect Robert McKinney of Houston, who has been engaged to draw up plans for a new clubhouse, and contractors, the demolition work being done by Beck Brothers of Beeville began in late November. Club president Sammie Smith said that the rubble of the burned-out building is being buried elsewhere on the club property and that the architect hopes to have construction documents ready for prospective bidders by mid-January, with bids to be opened in mid-February. "Then, if the bids are more or less in line with what we expected, we hope to award a bid and start construction as soon as thereafter possible," Smith said. "Of course, all those 'hopes' hinge on an ideal scenario. We'll just have to wait and see." In the meantime, he said repairs to the tennis courts are to be made in January and those to the swimming pool will probably begin in February or March. "In the meantime, we urge our members to continue patronizing the dining and bar facilities at the Country Club South. We've just about broken even there during the holiday season," he added.
