" Why would anyone be a member there? If pros can't shoot par, just think how bad the club players scores must be."

You do understand that they set the course up differently for the Open than everyday club use.....

Greens are faster, rough is much thicker, fairways are narrowed and the "apron/area surrounding the green" is adjusted by expanding it and making it faster.

Not sure about Olympic but often a par 5 at the club will be set as a par 4 during tournament play.....
