RADIUM SPRINGS, GA (WALB) -

What once was a luxurious country club and golf course is moving closer to becoming walking trails, but some neighbors tell us they are sad to see the old buildings, dating to the 1920s, torn down.

This week the former clubhouse of the Radium Springs Country Club was leveled.

During January's tornado, a tree fell onto the roof of the old clubhouse building. 

Many Albany residents recall the memories they have of the country club and golf course, saying it was the place to be in Albany. 

Many golf stars played there, decades ago.  READ MORE HERE.

While area residents say they are sad to see the clubhouse torn down, David Fuller said he is optimistic about the future of the area.

"It's really really different, but I'm glad the county owns it. I am glad it is going to be used as a park and open to the public, that they are going to work to turn it into something. I think it's great. I'm glad to live out here in Radium Springs," said Fuller.

Fuller has been living in the area for several decades.

The county plans to use some of these old cart paths as walking trails in the near future.
