Obviously when playing casual you are welcome to play the holes at whatever par you feel comfortable with. The posted par for the course at the Wide Open layout, which was just changed, was a par 57. That was with #13, #14 and #17 set at par 4 and everything else at a par 3. With the current layout I would call it about the same, #13 is over 100' shorter but still mighty long so par 4 is okay there and league averages support that, #14 is an easier 3 but still difficult with the pond and blind corner to get around so leaving it at par 4 makes sense. I will know more when I start getting hole by hole averages in this position. As for #17 it is even longer so it stays par 4.
When playing casual, intermediate, novice, whatever, it is fine to expect a par 4 round but calling things a par 3 for consistency and ease of scoring is just a convenience. Just play and have fun. During a tourney or league par means a lot more than when you are sipping a cold one and enjoying the day with a friend. It becomes a personal issue at that point.
