  Par  \Par\,  n. 
  1.  An  amount  which  is  taken  as  an  average  or  mean  [Eng.] 
 
  2.  (Golf)  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.
