There are hundreds of holes here that are 350-400 range where our local advanced players can park. With me maxing out around 350ish, I'll be taking a lot of pars where others take birds. Makes for a hard time to gain strokes.

Unless your playing on wide open courses with 50% 800 ft holes it is most likely not only lack of distance. One of the best pros in my area has a max of 400-420 and has been rated 980+ for several years. Great upshots, great putting and accuracy on 300 ft and in is what kills it. If those 350-400 ft holes are in tight woods then those ams are damn good!

4 is not an option? Sounds like poor course design.
