Great question.

Since you asked for a side, and it is too easy for me to make bogies, I would prefer to par every hole. That would be a difficult task for me and feel so satisying.

Birdies and bogies. That's what happened the 1 time I broke par. I think I needed 5 birds for -1...

Dave PO43 I thought the same thing until I was 2 under coming into the 18th hole and after a great tee shot hit my second into the green side bunker and it plugged. Ended up shooting even par 72 and felt like I just swallowed a cotton ball. It took all the enjoyment out of the round. I still think about when I get the that 18th hole.

I just got a text from a friend to tell me he just shot even par for the first time. Of course I congratulated him immediately.  Shortly after, I thought to myself was it par on every hole or were there bogies and birdies.

So here is my question. What would mean more to you as a golfer. 

Shoot par on every hole. You did what the course designer intended.

Or would you rather have a few bogies and some birdies thrown in.. You missed on a few and beat the courses design on a few.

I'm sure all would like to shoot par and would'nt care how they did it.  But pick a side. Thought this might be interesting.

 

I love me some birdies, and I would love to shot a few bogies, then a few Birdies to get an even par.

I would also be trilled to shoot 18 pars.

Regardless how you answer the question, and play, anyone would still feel like they left something out there.

I'd be happy with either. But if I had to pick, I'd take par on every hole.

Par is Par, anyway you look at it. In my 40+ years of golf, I believe I have only done it once or twice. Interestingly, I most probably have been under par more that exact Par. Best round was -3 and at that stage I was on a 4 handicap (20+ yrs ago).

... I was thinking of this thread when playing today. I was hitting my T100-S really well and getting off the tee nicely too. I am getting tired of the wind which was around 20 mph today. Seems like we have had only 1 or 2 windless days this spring/summer. It makes putting difficult as well. But enough cry babying, I missed 2 very makable birdie putts and after chipping close after just missing the green from 181 with my trusty 4 iron and that 20 mph wind dead in my face, I realized I had 2 birdies and 2 bogies. Parred 17 and then hit a really nice drive on 18 leaving me 165 to a pin tucked back left over 2 bunkers, wind left to right so the play was go right at the pin and let the wind drift the ball to the middle of the green. I thought "that makes a solid par but only an outside shot at birdie so I started the ball left of the green with a 6 iron and let he wind bring it back to the hole. Landed in the fringe and trickled to about 8 feet.

... Felt like tournament pressure knowing even par puts me back in this thread but a birdie means 1 under par and I could post in How'd You Play instead. Putts just are not breaking like normal this year so I decided to not give the hole away, looked good until the last 6" and just caught the lip on the low side for a tap in par. So here I am. 🤪

Birdies and bogies, baby. Life is a roller coaster, and golf is the same way.

I like the diversity of the group. I didn't pick a side myself because I just couldn't figure out what was more rewarding for myself.

 I fortunately have accomplished both. When all the boxes were filled in with par, I felt like I left some birdies out there where I should have been happy with shooting even par. I admit they were not all GIR's. There was some chipping and one putts, so it was still a scramble to shoot even par.

When I scrambled from bogies to birdies I felt like I accomplished more to pull it off in the end. Birdies tend to get you pumped.

I think I'm going with an all par card. This is based on my home course having 3 holes that just always seem to kick my butt. Parring these in the same round would always bring a smile to my face. (only happened once so far).

Its such a hard game and staying consistent is damn near impossible. I would love to par every hole. Birdies are great and eagles are even better but to stay consistent for 18 holes would be a very rare occurrence. So my answer would be a bogey free round.

I'll take what I can get . It's an accomplishment just breaking 100, 90, 80 or even 70!

Yup, don’t care how I get there as long as it’s even Par.

I have the same issue at my home course. There are 3 par 3's in a row on the front 9. The greens are small to medium size. If you don't hit somewhere in the middle of the green/s, there is no way the ball will stay on the green/s. They slope  away from the middle on 3 sides. If the pin is in the front, you don't want to be on the green because, if you don't sink the downhill, breaking putt, it is almost certainly a bogey... if not, double or triple. Those 3 holes will make or break a round.... and I've experienced both over the years...lol.

That is certainly a strange layout. having 3 par 3 's in a row. Are they at least mixed yardages where at least one or two with a short iron in?

My home course has the standard 4 par 3's but the yardages are almost the same. 164, 176,175, 164 from the white tees.  The first one playes uphill so you have to add a club which puts it right back at 174. Robert Trent Jones missed the mark on these! I would like at least one short iron in. Trying to achieve the elusive hole in one on these yardages is tough for me.

All three of them are no more than 185 yds. One is 135 yds..... the other two are roughly the same distance... one down hill and the other up hill. Those two are the worst...lol.

 

The course only has four par 4's. I was told the three in a row on the front was due to land available at the time the course was built and it was necessary to get all nine holes on the front. It is a short course with no sand... 6000 yds. from the tips. It is very tight and requires decent accuracy off the tee. There is trouble on both sides of every hole on the course. There are 5 lakes/ponds to deal with, one being on 18 which is considered the hardest finishing hole in the county. Greens are generally small with lots of breaks and slopes. Despite is short yardage and lack of sand, it takes an accurate player and a good putter to score well.

I’d love 18 pars! But I would assume a par round for me would include at least 1 birdied par 5 and at least one bogeyed par 3
