The Blog received this note from a homeowner:
My name is Rick. I am a Homeowner at Desert Princess. I had a 7:15 tee time and was playing 18 holes with a friend. After the first nine we stopped at the snack bar to get some food before finishing the second 9 holes.
I was met at the Snack bar by Rand from the pro shop who screamed at me to “get back on the golf course immediately” and stating, “ there are people behind you”. I said, we are getting food and will resume playing. He then said get on the course immediately again. My response was that you have no right to talk to me that way.
I have never been verbally accosted like that and was so upset I left the course and did not play the second 9 holes. I expect the golf staff to treat members and their guests in a professional manner.
On any other course, the starter would have let the next group continue and schedule my second 9 after my break. I hope that the Country Club will handle this problem and address this unacceptable behavior from Rand, a Country Club employee.
