I have to admit, this one kind of made me smile....

Wow, I didn't realize the Par Encyclopedia got stickied. I guess I better add this approach:


Par is a "design concept" or "design label".

If the hole was designed to be reached in 1 shot, it is a par 3.
If the hole was designed to be reached in 2 shots*, it is a par 4.
If the hole was designed to be reached in 3 shots**, it is a par 5.

If you can't easily tell how many shots a hole was designed to be reached in, there is probably a design problem with that hole.

Notes:
* Or, at the player's discretion, 1 heroic*** shot.
** Or, at the player's discretion, 2 heroic*** shots.
*** "heroic" implies risky and really really good.




If that doesn't work for you and/or you need a "rule", there's this:


This applies to the VAST MAJORITY of courses meant for NORMAL PUBLIC PLAY. Or even minor- to medium-sized tournaments.

If you can estimate elevation, adjust the hole lengths by 3 feet for every 1 foot of elevation change before applying the above table.

Just a reminder that there is a great deal of useful information about par in the pages that are referenced here...

What percentage of all holes should be "Par 2," then? 3/4 of them?
Then all holes at both Courses in my town should be Par 2, a hole on the Steamboat Course should be a 1 then as it is a 220 foot hole. The Powerhouse Ally Course would have only 1 or 2 maybe 3 Par 3 holes.
