Golf Courses Struggle in Subpar Economy
(AJC) — It hasn’t been a good year for the golf business, and that’s not even taking the whole Tiger Woods thing into account.

Several prominent clubs have undergone or are undergoing ownership or management changes including The Country Club of the South in Johns Creek, Heritage Golf Club in Tucker, Horseshoe Bend Country Club in Roswell and the Fairways of Canton Golf Club in Canton. Others are struggling, industry executives suggest.
