When is it alright to 3?

If the course were all the same distance holes, what distance would those holes have to be for a 54 to be a 1000 rated round?

Maybe there are things to throw around to make you shape lines, but your disc isn't getting treenied. So yeah, basically wide open.

I would guess an average hole length of 400 would get you pretty close to 1000. It depends how really "wide open" it is though.

So if a hole is 380', you better be deucing it if you don't want to drop a stroke on the field.

At what distance do 1000-rated players average 3.0? That is, do they get a 4 as often as they get a 2? (Assuming, if wide open, that they don't get 5s enough to move the needle).

Interesting question. Curious to see what people say...
I know this much:
1) I have no realistc expectation of deucing a 380' hole, because I don't expect to hit 100+ ft upshots with any regularity.
2) The only thing I have in common with 1000 rated players might be some of the discs we throw (but not the way we throw them).

Arcadia Park #2 in Texas seems to be a good example of roughly a 400' average, open course. Maybe 420' average is a better estimate for a 1000 rated 54 on that type of course.
