I know this is old news in this thread, but I'd love to see par 2's, 6's, even 7's implemented. One thing I hate in the sport is how an open two shot hole (think a 500' hole, or two easy 250' shots) is often automatically made a par 4. I like courses that reward par. Roy G is one that comes to mind.

You may have re-set a 3000 post thread, with that.

I'm not sure a good par-7 can be built, though. It might seem a big like a cross-country trek, throwing discs.

Though I actually played one, a couple of weeks ago. Par probably correctly set (expected score for 1000-rated players) at 7; about a par-11 for my skill level, though thankfully I was playing doubles. It had some novelty due it its unique location, but I'm not sure I'd want to play it more than the once-every-few-years that I do. Or even watch better players do it.

Where? Legit par 6s are already almost non-existent. Got scorecards? I can adjust for it being doubles.

A private course that no longer holds tournaments.

The par-4s and par-5s seem geared toward pros, and I think that's the owner's intent. Some of them, I'd be pretty happy with a bogey. The 2200' (or more) par 7 is, as I said, a novelty, seldom played even on that course.

Yeah, par 7 may be a stretch, but I'm thinking a hole like 17 at Iron Hill but add an OB creek on the left or push it back another 100'. It averaged 5.23 over 3 days at an NT. Just imagine if there was any OB. I can watch this Seppo eagle a million times.

This thread is too long... but here goes, may have already been suggested.

1) expand putting to Circle 2
2) par = expected shots to Circle 2 (or closer) + 2

Yeah, that sounds like a par 7.
