  • Pier Park pars?

    Anyone have an idea on what the pars are for the holes? I feel like the distances seem like par 3s and 4s, but with the trees I would expect more. What pars on you playing on this course?

    All holes are par 3.

      Its hard to believe, but I guess I just need to practice, practice, practice.

        Pier Park does have some very long par 3's. I think you could make a case for #15 through #18 -- and maybe #9 -- being par 4 in their long positions.

          Contrary to the belief that all Disc Golf Courses are Par 3, the PDGA says "Par is based on player skill level, hole length and foliage density."

          When player skill level is taken into account it is possible to have many Par values for a single hole.

            That certainly helps. Of course it all takes practice anyway. Good thing I live 3 blocks away from Pier.

              In casual rounds, pars are kind of a joke. I personally play everything as par 3 so it's easier to keep score (-1, +1). But in tournaments, I think the above guidelines are good to give a player a sense of what an average score should be on that hole. Maybe that could be good for casual rounds too.

              Whatever floats your boat.
