Course Review and Comments

I have played this course back in January and everything was great......The course was great much more difficult than the course at Bear Creek which is pretty much my home course because its around the course. So Yesterday March 7th I went to play a round, after warming up i was informed that a tournament was taking place. So the associate in the pro shop made me aware that i might not be able to get on the course (after my card was swiped) He gave me to talk to the starter which wasn't a big deal. The starter told me to find a hole on the back 9 where i could find some room. That which i had done (12th Hole).....Well after i played one hole i proceeded to the next hole where i was about to tee off the marshall approaches me saying that "you cant be here" I feel like there was a better way to inform me instead of saying that i couldn't be here, like i was less of a person than him. I informed him that i was told to pick a hole on the back 9 to start on. He demanded to see my receipt, instead of being fair he wanted to be a dick. And i have a very short temper. The hole was completely empty which means it had room. The group in the tournament which hadn't reached the 12th green yet were the ones who called in and i guess said i jumped in front of them. He wanted to at this point i really don't care, i paid to be here, after arguing with him for 10 minutes he finally says i can either put you on the front of the course where most of the people from the tournament were at or give you a refund. I drove off and headed to the pro shop and the sales associate took care of me. He was great the entire time so i wish him the best. This is a very nice course but i will never ever come back to this place again. I felt like he treated me differently because i'm african american (no im not one who always tries to pull the race card ), i saw plenty of other non tournament players tee off before me. If there was a valid reason for him to ask me to move to another hole then that wouldn't have been a problem but to say you cant be here just isn't the way to do it!
