Reason for pro par etc

In ball golf there is not pro par. why in disc golf is there pro par and rec par or whatever?

Pro par = redundant.
Rec par = oxymoronic.

Par is the question. First, you have to speak in complete sentences. Second, its not ball golf. Third, low score wins, regardless of "Par". Fourth...throw down the middle. Fifth, make an upshot that gets you within....A: another upshot that you can laser within 20'. Or B: make 3 from your lie in the fairway. Any questions....talk with Olorin.

What I've been told is that pro par is always 3, to keep scoring simple. And that makes sense, as all tourneys are scored on total strokes, and not on your performace versus par.

Now at Giles Run, they have pro and rec tees and the "marked par" on the course for rec is 58 for 18 holes, and Pro 67, so keeping track of your score's much simpler if you assume par 3 for each hole, no matter the length.

The way to keep track of your score is to announce it to your group....i.e. " I made a three." and then have it written down on The Card. Thats your score for that hole. I don't play competitive rounds with players that keep score in their head, whatever their easy scoring system seems to be.

It's "easier" to keep track of your relative scores if you assume each hole is a 3...otherwise you have to keep track which holes are Par 4 and 5.
