If you start adjusting pars on the long holes you have to do it on the short ones also. It's not realistic for a course like Hornings to play above par 54 when compared to the likes of Pier, Dabney, Dexter etc.
Having said that, there is a realistic case for 13 and 18 to be considered par four holes. There is no reason par 5 should be part of the discussion.
My feeling is if you are going to mess with the par ratings on two of the holes at Hornings, you have to be consistent and do it for every hole in the region. Get out Chuck Kennedy's charts and start figuring out what is a realistic number for par on everything. That's a laborious undertaking, and would probably result in a few more par 4 holes in the region and a large number of par 2 golf holes. Is this necessary?
