I would (respectfully) disagree. The question of par comes up a lot on the course. I think a lot of people believe every hole has to be birdie-able, which I disagree with. Some holes are near impossible to birdie, so realistically, you're just shooting for a par. That said, you're competing with other golfers so par is relative to your competition. In relation to course/round ratings we need to establish a constant to judge on. In my opinion, 60 is a fair par for standard setup at Bridgeton. Make no mistake, this is a difficult course to shoot well at. But that doesn't mean we should inflate par to make the AM's feel better about their round.
5:4 -> C placement is probably a 5

Nevertheless, your new set does sound more realistic.
