I know half par is not ideal, but it is significantly more realistic, especially in our sport with so many tweener holes. And, it has historical precedent.

scoring average is NOT a par, the last thing we need in our game is a bunch of par 2's and 4's messing up the math, you shot 69? congrats on your 15 over at BV.

that begs a debate of what is par though Danger.....par is not an average, but a relative term ( http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/par ) Golf . the number of strokes set as a standard for a specific hole or a complete course.
 So thus not an average but a standard.  Now I am with you all the way, in that it really doesn't matter what par is, as long as you take less throws to bet the other person, you win....

soooo, the most fun does not necessarily win? varying par was invented for fools who chase little white balls across expensive fairways in the pursuit of social acceptance. lose the ball golf mentality, discs were invented to paint the sky and the ground, albeit for a few glamorous seconds, culminating in the putting attempt that tests one mettle against metal. you can quote me on that, and the fact that any number, other than 54, is not a par for 18 holes. disc golf had par 72 courses at inception, just 24 holes, because our game is 133% improved over ball golf in the "par" department, and light years beyond mastadon-pie golf of yore. when are we going to have that fountain fixed up by 16?

i could live with no scroring and making the game more artsy, but the quest for greatness must be measured in deuces, and yes if you have superpowers the game is boring< referncing the Guardians of Recreation>

Danger, since you can't count above 4 anyway, what does it matter?
