Starting a thread to represent White Tees' Pro-Course scoring to compliment the "What's your best under, over game on the EASY Course (not the pro)" thread of the same nature representing the Red Tees' standard course.
Those who play white tees can list their best and give them an incentive to top themselves so they can log back in and update their statistics with their new personal victories: Fun self-motivators.
Only played 1 full round so far on May 16th in the rain. New to the area, so had the "introduction to the course round"- aka: walking around finding pin placements and locating the elusive white tees. Couldn't get very good disc grip or fairway traction in the wetness, but got a lot of lucky par save breaks and tree-god & skip love, so 'eh... feel decent about it. Some good, some bad. Something to build on for the next time to set a goal to beat.
White Tees: 48. (25 front 9, 23 back 9).
-6 assuming all holes counting as tourney pars 3
If not: anywhere from -11 to -8 from the white tees if the pars on the score card graphic shown on the Crockett forum are considered legitimate par values. Didn't pay attention to whether it was As or Bs per hole... just found the basket and went for it.

Glory be Mikey!
A 48 from the whites? Sweet. That is some hot golf.
Par? I don't know what tourney par is, but I don know that the signs at Crockett indicate par based on a certain player rating. The white tees are the closest hole number based on what a 1000 rated player would shoot from those tees -- at that placement.
And the red tees are set for what a 850 rated player would shoot.
From the white tees.Crockett has some legitimate par 4's (currently long 9 and occasionally long 12) We also use those same numbers for tournaments.
So, in the current set-up --- Crockett whites have a par of 55. But, like you; I would rather keep up with raw score. Comparing to par can often be confusing.
My best? I got a few 56's from last year. A couple of 58's from this year. Maybe when I grow up I can shoot a 48. Way to go!
I think a 58 is my best from the whites. It might seem crazy, but I bet I've played Crockett at least 150 times, and maybe 20 of those from the whites. mainly because I dont get off work till 6 so by the time I get there its just easier to throw reds before dark....so my best from reds is a 48.
I should probably try shooting whites again as its been a while.
I half-jokingly say "tourney 3s" because there area lot of courses out there - especially where I was from in central and northern Mississippi, that would always have these random Par4 or Par5 values on the little hole signs. Any SNDG or PDGA tourney director and players would always consider them a Par 3. They were never bordering on 4 digit distances or anything like that... it was more of a value for the newcomer or extreme rookies to use to gauge it more optimistically to develop their game and mostly to not discourage them. They shouldn't think that they have negative marks because they can't drive the length of a 450 then putt around a corner, and if missing settling a par or a bogey for anything less ideal. All that really matters is the overall #s compared to other overall #s like we'd mentioned, but people like to say xxx over and xxx under for personal and easier comparative references... most players just call things a par3 for easily keeping track unless it's such a juggernaut hole that you shouldn't be able to come anywhere close to a 2nd throw birdie attempt without a 2nd power drive fairway ace. Usually it's just seen on temporarily made Gold Courses - even at Winthrop. If you ever hear me say Tourney 3s, I'm just using my own lingo to acknowledge that I'm just going by that easier reference when I know there are other values listed on signs, and I don't know if the local players take those values to heart in a formal competition setting.
I have a grand total of 9 rounds played from the whites(thanks to discgolfscene's stat tracker).
My best score from the whites is a 54, and my average score is a 58.6.
From the reds however; I have 3 rounds recorded with a best of a 45, and an average score of a 47.
This confirms what I already knew. I am very much just a pitch and putt player. The overall length from the whites doesn't lend itself to my strengths as a player, and my score usually suffers. However, I will gladly play any of you for tags at Cedars, The Shire, Seven Oaks, or Smyrna. My average scores at these shorter courses best the majority of the players on your current leaderboard ;-)

6/1/2012 Tied my personal best this morning of 44 from the white tees, which translates with the PDGA iPhone app to a 1100; however, today's round was superior to the previous best due to many baskets being in the longer alternate positions (example: hole 4, hole 9). The phone doesn't know how to calculate anything but standard vs pro tees; so I guess I'll just call the day; theoretically, assumably according to the PDGA app... >1100+.
