Yes, par is set for the skill level of the players in ball golf for all tees. In addition, there are some higher pars for lower level players when they play the longer tees. This is sometimes noted on the scorecard for those lower skill players so they know their par for handicap purposes.

I've always thought teeing of grass and moving the tee box forward, backward or to either side every couple of days like they do in regular golf would be interesting. It seems most Disc Golf holes in my area would change the way you approach a hole based on moving the tee one direction or another...if only by 10 or 15 feet.

Not going to take your bait since you are obviously not as mathy as your sister thinks you are. But, I will agree with you sort of. If you "get there in three" it should definitely be a par-4.....maybe even a par-5 if you a believer that there should be 2 close range shots allowed.

The grammar in your reply hurt my brain, so I corrected it for you Lol

Anyway, as a lefty I see myself just throwing my 175g 12x Teebird and taking a birdie Lol Looks like a fun hole for sure.

Another lefty going LHBH max weight Teebird at the pin. Finally a hole for us!

I can see a lot of plastic hitting that water. I would take the boring, safe route and lay up on the bank by the tree, and FH my approach to the basket.
