Drive by a country club now that the weather is warmer and you’ll likely see people taking in a round of golf.  However the number of people who choose to do that has been steadily dropping over the last 10 to 15 years.  That’s forced a couple of Birmingham country clubs to close and the others to look to a new strategy.  We hear about it in this week’s Magic City Marketplace. Birmingham Business Journal editor Cindy Fisher Crawford tells WBHM’s Andrew Yeager this decline comes after growth fueled by golfer Tiger Woods.
