The number of strokes required for a hole or a round played without mistake, two strokes being allowed on each hole for putting. Par represents perfect play, whereas bogey makes allowance on some holes for human frailty. Thus if par for a course is 75, bogey is usually put down, arbitrarily, as 81 or 82. If par for one hole is 5, a bogey is 6, and a score of 7 strokes would be a double bogey.
The number of shots a good player should take either ona given hole or for the duration of an 18 hole round. For a short hole the good player should take three shots; on a medium length hole the number is four and on a long hole it is five. We call these holes a par three, a par four and a par five. Par for the course is the pars of all the individual holes added together. On an average 18-hole course the par is 72. It can vary from the low 60s for a very short course to 74 for a long course.
The number of shots a player should take for a hole or full round of golf. The hole par is measured by the number of strokes a player should take to get the ball in the hole. The round par is calculated by adding all the hole par's together. (Typically hole par's are 3,4 or 5) (Par for a full round of golf is usually 70, 71 or 72).
The score that an expert golfer would be expected to make for a given hole. Par means errorless play without flukes and under ordinary weather conditions, allows 2-strokes on each putting green. Par is based on yardage and applies on the length of the hole and not necessarily by its difficulty. Difficulty is determined by the course rating system in the U.S Penalty Stroke A stroke added to a players score for a hole or a round under the penalty clauses in the Rules of Golf; i.e. lost ball, out of bounds, accidentally moved, etc.
The standard score for a hole, usually based on it's length. Holes up to 250 yards (228m) long are par 3's, up to 475 yards (434m) par 4's and any longer than that are par 5's. Course committees are now authorized to vary par when a hole's difficulty warrants not sticking rigidly to the distances laid down.
This is the score (number of golf strokes) an expert golfer would be expected to make for the hole or golf course. Holes can have a Par score of 3, 4, or 5. Par for golf courses vary as well, but tend to be in the area of 72 strokes.
Consistently making all your spares will give you an average in the 180 to 190 range. When you develop your game so that you can start to string strikes together your score will go up and you will start to approach the 200 or 210 mark, which many have likened to being a "scratch" golfer.
the par of a hole or course is the number of shots a good golfer should take to complete it. The par of a hole is decided by its length. In Britain, the measurements are: par 3 = 229 metres (251 yards), par 4 = 229-434 metres (251-475 yards), par 5 = 435 metres (476 yards) and over.
The average number of throws it takes to complete a hole; most pros and advanced players play all holes as par 3, but all courses are different and have diffeent pars. Also, completing a hole in the designated average number of throws.
The number of strokes an expert would be expected to use at any particular hole without any mistakes. It is primarily based on the number of strokes to reach the green, plus two putts. Also, the total number of strokes for all holes, such as in "par for the course."
Expected score on a given hole based on its length and difficulty. Par 3 holes tend to be less than 225 yards in length, par 4's range from less than 300 to over 450 yards, and most par 5's tend to be longer than 480 yards.
As determined by the director, the score an expert disc golfer would be expected to make on a given hole. Par means errorless play under ordinary weather conditions, allowing two close range throws to hole-out.
The par of each hole is the number of shots given to complete it, for length plus two for putting, each hole is either a par 3, 4, or 5. These are then added up to give the Penalty Strokes These are added to a players score for a rules violation, or hitting the ball out-of-bounds or into water.
The number of shots a low handicapper should take for a hole or round. The hole par is measured by the number of shots needed to reach the green plus two for the putting. The round par is calculated by adding all the hole par's together.
The number of strokes, designated for each hole, that represents a standard of good performance. The par figures for individual holes are added up to represent par for a course. Par is generally based on the length of a hole from the tee to the green, although adjustments may be made for configuration of the ground, severity of hazards, and other difficult or unusual conditions. See the following entries.

These currently consist of notes and coins on issue, balances with the Reserve Bank, Commonwealth government debt securities and loans to official dealers secured by Commonwealth securities.
In the case of a common share, par means a dollar amount assigned to the share by the company's charter. Par value may also be used to compute the dollar amount of the common shares on the balance sheet. Par value has little significance insofar as the market value of common stock is concerned. In the case of preferred shares and bonds, par often signifies the dollar value upon which dividends on preferred stocks, and interest on bonds, are figured.
A dollar amount assigned to a share of stock by the corporation's charter. At one time, it reflected the value of the original investment behind each share, but today it has little significance except for bookkeeping purposes.

Short for Parabolic Aluminised Reflector lamp. A lamp containing a filament, reflector and lens in one sealed unit. Used in Parcans to produce a high intensity narrow beam of light. Par lamps are available in many different sizes and powers. Par sizes available include 16, 36, 38, 56 and 64. (The number refers to the diameter of the lens, in eighths of an inch). The most common for theatre use are Par 64s rated at 1000W (1kW), although other wattages are available.
Parabolic Aluminized Reflector. A bulb that emits light in only one direction. These lamps control light more precisely. They produce about four times the light of standard incandescence and are used in recessed and track lighting. 30 indicates bulb diameter in eighths of an inch. A PAR30 is 3 3/4 inches (30 eights) across the widest point.
Abbreviation for Photosynthetically Available Radiation, a quantity used in studies of photosynthesis as a measure of total available light. It is defined as a flux of quanta rather than energy and is usually considered to be the total photon flux between 400 and 700 nm (with the lower limit sometimes moved to 350 nm). This is around 38% of the total extraterrestrial solar irradiance. PAR is defined, as a function of depth, by where is Avagadro's constant, is Planck's constant, the speed of light, the wavelength, and the irradiance. The units of PAR are einsteins per square meter per second, and it is measured underwater using a device called a quantum meter.
Pension Adjustment Reversal. Generated when a Plan Member has terminated employment and is entitled to a refund of contributions or chooses a Commuted Value transfer (for post 1989 service) or a transfer to another registered pension plan and this amount is less than the sum of the PAs and PSPAs which have been reported. It is designed to restore lost RRSP room. The PAR applies only to such terminations from 1997 onward. It does not apply if the Member transfers directly to another College.
Payroll Audit Report. A list, by employee, which details their payroll computation (e.g., time, type of pay, gross pay by funds, amount of each reduction/deduction/contribution, adjustment activity, disbursement activity, balances, etc.).
Pension adjustment reversal. You may have noticed that after 1998 you may have additional contribution room from something called a Pension Adjustment Reversal (PAR). The purpose of the PAR is to restore RRSP contribution room that was previously "lost" from Pension Adjustments (PAs).
PAR is a program that takes an NCD file, places and routes the design, and outputs an NCD file. The NCD file produced by PAR can be used as a guide file for reiterative placement and routing. The NCD file can also be used by the bitstream generator, BitGen.

Personnel Activity Report. A report that reflects an after-the-fact reporting of the percentage of activity ( effort) of each employee.

The report must reasonably reflect the percentage of effort applicable to each sponsored agreement, and to other activities defined on the PAR. Each report must be signed by the employee or by a responsible official having first hand knowledge of the work performed.
