Playing everything as a 3 gives you a good reference point, and is honestly easier to track in your head during a casual round

"All holes are par 3" means I'm generally -1, even or +1 on every hole. This makes counting the score easy.
BHW wrote:I tend to disagree with the "all are par 3" mentality. Of course, east coast wooded courses are VERY different from what many other places tend to have. "Wide open" here means 25ft between the trees. Holding every player, from the casual rec player to the tourny playing amatuer oir pro, to the same par 3 standard is lazy and taking the easy way out. Most courses are labeled with par 4 and 5 holes. Why did the builder even bother if nobody is going to use that score card? There are plenty of sub 1000ft holes around here that are not par 3 due to course layout, trees, water, etc. Disc golf is nowhere near as difficult to play as ball golf. You can have someone shooting par in disc golf in a couple of months...and it not shock anyone. That does not happen in ball golf.
Telling a rec or beginning player that the par on holes 4 & 16 at Buckhorn is a "3", is demoralizing. Have a look:
