I never had such an experience.
I was once playing a golf tournament in Phoenix at a course I had never played before. After finishing one of the holes, it was unclear where the next hole was. I asked a man who worked there, but he was very hard to understand and I was in a rush. I basically heard him say follow me I'm heading that way, as he took off in his cart. So I went the way he did, but it turns out I didn't go far enough and I almost teed off on the wrong hole. Luckly I saw the sign that said hole#13 out of the corner of my eye before taking a swing.
I didn't hear my teammate properly once, so I missed a meeting where they distributed roles. However, when I realized what I'd missed, I contacted my teammate immediately to get a recap of what happened.
