This comment really spoke to me. I'm a 72 year old player who has only been at it for a few years. I play the local 18 hole course and they range from 250 to over 700 feet and all are considered par 3. My best score so far is 10 over par, and the longest hole I have not achieved a par yet. I keep score every game just to track my average and keep track of my activity level. I continue to hope to see my game dramatically improve, but in the meantime I'm just being patient. Good luck to you and your progress, but most of all, have fun!

OP is in Richmond, VA and he talked about it being a local course. The course in question is probably Bryan Park in Richmond, VA, which fits the given description (6675' par 59 per DGCR stats.)

11 is 724, 8 is 600, and 4 is 590. And honestly, if you know of anyone short of the biggest pro bombers who could put it pin high on 4, I would be very surprised. The location of that basket would require an incredible shot.
