PATTERSON, Calif. (AP) - Persistent drought conditions are forcing the closure of a prestigious Central Valley golf course.

The Modesto Bee reports ( ) that Diablo Grande will close its Legends golf course, an 18-hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Gene Sarazen.

Restrictions on water use have been imposed on the resort community's 437 homes, and residents are already facing the possibility of more expensive water bills as the community's water district purchases water at a steep price.

Farmers south of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta are expecting no irrigation water to be provided this year by state or federal water systems, the same system that feeds Diablo Grande's public utility.

Resident Bill Lindley says he'd rather see the golf course cut off water so that it can be given to a farmer.
