agree  Cilian O'Tuama: this is the idea, but it is not colloquial/idiomatic English. (and 100 for a 30-handicapper isn't bad)

Reference: a golf course with par 70

Reference information:
Par (score)
In golf, par is a predetermined number of strokes that a scratch (or 0 handicap) golfer should require to complete a hole, a round (the sum of the pars of the played holes), or a tournament (the sum of the pars of each round). Pars are the central component of stroke play, the most common kind of play in professional golf tournaments.
...
Typical championship golf courses have par values of 72, comprising four par-threes, ten par-fours, and four par-fives. While 72 is typical, championship course par can be as high as 73 to as low as 69. Most 18-hole courses not designed for championships still have a par close to 72, though some will be lower. Courses with par above 73 are rare. Courses built on relatively small parcels of land will often be designed as "Par-3 Courses", in which every hole is a par 3 (for a total par of 54 over 18 holes).
