play every hole is a par 3 regardless of the place. easier to keep score.

Hi Oldmanplayin, we have similar background and experience listed, but I think I've got the answer you seek. Everyone else correct me if I've got this wrong, please.
DGCR usually doesn't list the course records, but some local club websites do.
SSE is similar to the SSA (scratch scoring average), but not exactly the same. It should give you a rough idea of the course's difficulty, but I'm not real sure if numbers less than 50 are going to play a little easier. I think SSE and SSA are pretty fair guesses as to what a 1000 rated player is supposed to shoot on a typical round there?
From that, you can judge your round. If a course has an SSE of 49, and a novice player (850 rating & under) shoots under 64, they're not doing too badly [ (1000-850)/10=15 strokes ].
I -almost- always shoot for a three or better on every hole, but it's not realistic to expect a three on Idlewild #15 (and #5, and #6, etc.)
Sorry for being too wordy, and not perfectly accurate, but one of the DGCR guys might give you more clarification...

I am not trying to create an argument... but that is a moronic answer everything is a 3?????? 1000' vs 300'

Par doesn't matter, AT ALL... make every hole a par 72 if it makes you happy, total strokes are all that matters in disc golf, ball golf, or putt putt golf...
