ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — Residents of a defunct country club in San Diego County are raising a stink over the stench of manure used on the golf course.

Chicken manure, to be exact.

U-T San Diego says the Air Pollution Control District received 17 complaints this week about the smell at the Escondido Country Club. Inspector Kent Mesplay went to investigate. He told the paper on Wednesday that he found a Level 5 odor — just about bad enough to make someone gag.

The district says it will cite the owner for creating a public nuisance.

The club owner, Stuck in the Rough LLC, issued a statement Wednesday saying the course is being maintained through an "industry-standard landscaping program" but says less-smelly fertilizer will be used in the future.
