Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama and one of the great golf towns in America. Located in north-central portion of the state, it's known as "The Magic City," but you don't need a wallet as fat as David Copperfield's to play here. But to make planning a trip to Birmingham easier, the travel experts at GOLF Magazine have developed three golf vacation plans to suit three different budgets.
