Prison realignment is turning SLO County golf course brown
A golf course in San Luis Obispo County is turning brown, not because of the drought, but because of a change to California’s prison system.
Dairy Creek Golf Course is on Highway 1 between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, across from Cuesta College. It gets its water from the California Men's Colony just down the road.
New Times SLO Reporter Jono Kinkade explains the situation in a recent article.
