ERROR! Nothing has been saved. Please check for the following problems:
Sorry, you are allowed to post no more than 3 feedbacks per month per golf course. If you wish to start a discussion about a golf course, please use our forums instead.

That is what I just got when trying to post a review for Balboa Park GC? Conditions have change since my last visit and I haven't played early in awhile so that difference is reflected as well. What's up Johnny? I thought we wanted MORE reviews not less?

I didn't see this the first time. Its some pretty "old" code to prevent back in the day the practice of flooding a page. Notice it states 3 "feedbacks" not "reviews" - at one time GK used the terminology "recent players feedbacks" instead of "recent reviews." The code and URL's actually have the word feedback in them. Anyway, its hard-coded to prevent spam flooding. Not sure what it will take to pull it out but will look into it.

I am curious as to why people post reviews but do not rate the course. When I read a review and no rating is listed, I don't hit the like button. Anyone else?

Some people have stated they feel numbers are too subjective and that the written word is more accurate to convey conditions. I prefer both, but that's likely why some review but don't rate.

QUOTED  I am curious as to why people post reviews but do not rate the course.

QUOTED  Some people have stated they feel numbers are too subjective and that the written word is more accurate to convey conditions.

My exact sentiments, which I've explained in the past whenever this question has been raised, and the reasons why I never rate a course numerically.
QUOTED  When I read a review and no rating is listed, I don't hit the like button.

That choice is certainly within your rights Sammy, as well as others who may elect to take the same approach. However, if someone takes the time to compose a well-written and detailed review, the courteous thing to do would be to acknowledge it with a 'LIKE', even if it lacks any ratings numbers.

I'll be honest - I don't do it because those ratings mean nothing to me. I enjoy reading details of the course much more than seeing a number assigned to it, which is why I try to do both in my reviews. I'll give it a rating but then the details why I thought of it that way. Often times when I'm searching for a course to play, it's more based on recent reviews than on ratings.

To me the rating is apart of the picture. I have seen my rating match another exactly and have seen them far apart. I weigh the words more heavily in my decision on playing a course, but, like we all do, many times I am simply seeking confirmation of my already formed opinion. A few times reviews have got me out to a course and the opposite, but never the rating alone.

I always review and rate. However, I have had several ratings simply never appear even after multiple attempts.
