    Default Course Par

    this past week I played the Maple Hill Gold Course - shooting course par was considered to be 1010 rated - It got me thinking one could compare courses in there difficulty based on par vs. 1000 rated golf

    so I started to check it out - I have listed a number of courses and what there par is considered to be, compare that to what it takes to shoot 1000 rated

    I have the courses listed in order to difficulty based on the rating for shooting the established course par

    Did you just put down a bunch of phone numbers for each of the courses?
    All I need is some tasty waves and a cool buzz and I'm all right.

    So if anyone knows other courses to add to this - list the course, the par, the 1000rated par, and what the course par rating would be

    In the SOKY, course par for White was 60. Also, I've never seen a tournament at Mt. Airy where they didn't use par as 54. In this year's BG Ams round 2 for Advanced was at Tech and round 3 was Phil Moore. Also, Phil Moore is getting 6 holes changed so its going to alter the round ratings.

    true - courses are always changing and courses use a variety of different methods in determing par -

    i made a few guesses -

    I think it is interesting in the difference between the said par the actual difficulty in achieving said par from course to course

    Par is according to DGCR and is according to the Black tee layout used at Patoka last year.
