The PDGA website has a ratings FAQ that seems to confirm that this is the case. For a given round they consider 1000 rated to be "scratch golf," which is influenced by the scores and ratings of people who played that course at the same time.

To get the highest rated players to show up, you need to run the highest quality tournament. Highest quality par for MPO is par that reflects the play of 1000-rated players (930 for FPO).

Errorless play by 1000-rated players can be rated anywhere from about 1000 to about 1030, depending on how punishing the course is and the weather. It does not really depend on who shows up.

If you see a par that is rated less than 1000, the likely cause is that the TD didn't bother to set par appropriately for the Open division. That lack of effort may keep highly rated players away.

Par is set before the event, it is not adjusted to 1000-rated at the end of the event.
