Posted Wed Aug 6 2008: from San Francisco Chronicle:
Golf courses try to play through drought
"Amid the current drought, golf courses in the East Bay are some of the hardest-hit water customers. While the local water district has ordered single-family home dwellers to cut water use by 19 percent, so-called irrigators such as golf courses must achieve a 30 percent savings.... The state's 900 golf courses cover about 130,000 acres, employ about 160,000 workers and pump nearly $7 billion into the economy. They are trying to make better use of surface water - and drilling for underground supplies. But environmentalists say keeping golf courses green shouldn't come at the expense of future water users."

Is it just environmentalists who think people are more important than golf courses?
