On July 25th we brought a foresome to play Crockett. Since this was the day after heavy rains, it was obvious why the course was "cart paths only". We, and all other golfers adhered to the cart path rule and trudged the hilly course. Behind us was the "course owner" and 5 of his cronies, all in separate carts driving all over the rough and fairways (even pulling their carts up on the t-boxes). Just visualize 6 people, in 6 separate carts, sloshing through the water and mud holes all over the fairways and rough, tearing it up even more than it already was. A course ranger named Jim Hunt confronted us early on the front nine, warning us that we should pick up the pace (I guess he wanted us to run the hills through the water and mud). He was the most despicable and rude person I have ever encountered in 45 years of playing golf. His "reasoning" was that, if his boss (course owner) caught up to us in their 6 carts, he would have us thrown off the course! My analysis is that either the owner is the worst business man in the area by setting a precedent in front of many paying customers following the cart path rule or, he is just plain stupid and arrogant by expressing the fact that "I am the owner of this course and can do anything I want, even if it means tearing up my own course and not giving a damn about any of my paying customers. Needless to say, after this experience, I,and many others will never patronize this course again. Furthermore, if many others feel the same way, this man could be put out of business, which is where he really belongs. Understanding that the ranger had a fear of his boss and was following orders, but if he had any integrity at all he would quit his job rather than be part of such rudeness!
