What is a par in golf?
par is the score or number of strokes it should take the average
player to complete each hole. for ex. if a hole is par 3 and you
take 3 shots to get it in the hole then you have finished that hole
par. but if you take 4 shots you are one over par or if you take 2
shots you are one under par.
par is NOT what the average player can do. Par is how many
strokes a very skilled golfer should take for each hole.
