A Par is an average score that can be achieved in the Mario Golf series. By getting a Par, the player gets a score of 0, meaning the player neither gains, nor loses points. Pars are not necessarily a bad score, but they are not good either; if the player gets nothing but Pars, he or she is very apt to lose. Also, if a player gets a score such as a Bogey, a Par will not bring the player's score back up. On the other side, if the player gets a Birdie or better, a Par will not worsen the player's score.

When the player gets a Par, his or her character reacts mellowly, showing happiness that he or she didn't do bad, but slightly disappointed that he or she didn't do better.

The Nintendo 64 version of Mario Golf colors Pars in White on the Score Card while Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour colors Pars in Green on the Score Card.

In other game modes[edit]

  • This is the highest score that will not earn the player a Birdie Badge in Tournament mode.
  • In Ring Shot mode, a Par is required for all holes, otherwise the player will fail the hole, even if they shot through all the rings in that hole.
  • When playing Club Slots in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour or by Point Play rules in Mario Golf: World Tour, a Par will award the player 2 points.
  • The player will fail Birdie Challenge in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour by getting a Par or lower score.
  • When playing the Cash Cup mode in Coin Attack on Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, a Par is required, otherwise the player will lose all coins earned in that hole.
