Default Banned from a private course resulting from a review on this site

This happened to a buddy of mine recently on this site involving a fairly well known course in the Northeast. The profanity laced PM rant announcing that he wasn't welcome back and repeatedly calling him a moron and other things is as jarring as at is funny in a derranged way. My bud didnt quite know how to respond so he simply didn't. But now that it's marinated for about a week in my mind I thought I would bring it up for discussion.

Obviously the owner has the right to do this as it's his course but this seems like an extreme turn to the dynamics that play out on this site. The funny thing is that the rating which inspired this was a "good".

Anyone else have any similar stories?

If you can be banned for life for stiffing him $5, why can't he ban you for a profanity laced review of his personal property?

Well was it a situation where the course was not on this site and he added it? IF so that would be the reasonw why. Some people do not random jack a$$es showing up and sneaking onto their property. The more attention that comes the more people come. Look at flyboy aviation which was a "private" course that turned into someones life and they took it off this site because of that.

That is not why Flyboy was taken off, It did happen at Dixie Landing in WV.

That actually is pretty much why FBA was taken off, lol

Just didn't have time for all the traffic the site brought it.

Hyzer Creek...I played there. Cool course, but I have never seen so much broken glass and litter on a course in my life.
