VIDEO: Ledgeview clubhouse dismantled

Abbotsford golf course clubhouse torn down following April fire

The clubhouse at the Ledgeview Golf and Country Club was officially torn down on Nov. 7.



The Ledgeview Golf and Country Club clubhouse is finally no more.

Following a fire in April, part of the clubhouse remained standing, but on Nov. 7 the facility was dismantled for good.

Back in June, the city of Abbotsford had been eyeing a 250-seat banquet hall to replace the clubhouse.

A few weeks ago, the city re-issued its request for expressions of interest (RFEI), through which it is seeking private companies to build a new clubhouse and 250-seat banquet hall at the site.

The new RFEI says the city is willing to spend up to $2 million to build the new facility.

City manager George Murray said the funds come from insurance money received after the April fire that destroyed the clubhouse. They don’t include $1.3 million pledged by Kinder Morgan for a new clubhouse prior to the fire. The insurance money must be used to replace the destroyed building.
