Dry weather helping golf courses on Central Coast

It's been one of the driest years San Luis Obispo County has ever seen, but surprisingly, the lack of rain may actually be helping golfers and golf courses in the area.

"It doesn't actually deter the golfers," said Michael Wagner, head golf professional at Dairy Creek Golf Course. "In the last couple months we've been up in rounds a little bit."

2013 was the third driest year on record for the county. San Luis Obispo resident Chuck Bown only wants one thing at the top of Mother Nature's New Year's resolution list: make it rain.

"It's always nicer when it rains," said Bown. "The greens are a little softer, so they're more receptive."

Even though courses in the area may not be in top condition, Wagner says to take advantage while the weather is this nice.

"Seventy-five to 80 degrees and no wind," says Wagner. "It's just beautiful out there."
