There's a drone flyover preview video up, obviously done before the course was installed, and it's a lot of open space with some elevation change. Looks like torture to me.
I look forward to watching this.

During the BFDO this year, the par was set to 67 and SSA came in at a 62. The course needs to be either lengthened or have more trees for it to be an SSA 72 course. Still fun and very challenging if the wind is up.

There are probably some 24 hole legit par 72 courses out there.

Foundation Park in Centralia IL is a par 72 when all in the far placements. five par 3s and five par 5s. 10,925. i dont know what the SSA is, but I would guess around 67-68.

Panther Creek is a Par 71

IMO around par 65 is the sweet spot for championship disc golf due largely to our myriad varieties of par 3.

Again, a variety of par 3s doesn't mean we should have more of them. We have a huge variety of par 4s and 5s available as well, even more variety than 3s.

who is saying we need more par 3s? most of our courses are 54 and even newer ones rarely break 63.

these are spot on. Ryan, maybe you forgot that the context of this thread was courses with a par of 72. the point is not that we need more par 3s, it's that we don't need so many 4s and 5s that we only have a handful of 3s left.

Relative to the typical par distribution on a traditional golf course (2 3's, 5 4's 2 5's per 9) I would say it does indeed mean we should have more of them. YMMV.

If SSA actually is that far below par, then par is probably set for amateur players, not pros. I think this thread is about courses that have legit par 72s for pros.
