A Par round is Matchplay against the card with handicap.
If you are on a 23 handicap, you received 2 strokes on the hardest 5 holes and 1 stroke on the other holes.
The hardest hole for men, at Hagley, is the 5th hole. It is a par 4 and with 2 strokes your “Par” is 6.
So on the 5th hole, if you score:
- better than 6 (3, 4, or 5), you win that hole and record a +
- a 6, you halve the hole and record a 0
- worse than six, you lose the hole and record a –
At the end of the round, add up the +’s and -‘s, if you have 3 +’s and 5 -‘s, then your Par score is 2 down.
Below is an example of a scorecard showing how it would appear as a Par round.
The player is on a 14 handicap, so the easiest 4 holes were marked X to show no strokes received on those holes.
The final score was -4 (4 down), which is put into the Stbfd/Par box in the Scoring section at the top of the card.
