Doesn't really matter much, does it? All the tournaments I've played have been stroke play so Par has no real meaning. I'd be interested to hear about other scoring methods where Par would come into play.
I play a course where all the holes are under 300' and several are around 200'. I've birdied all 18, but only once have hit even half of them in the same round. I guess if you're at a pro or semi-pro level, then courses like that you'd like to see those shorter holes at a par 2, but a Par 3 seems to hit a wider range of players than a Par 2 would.

If a player shoots a 68, they will get an 820 rating for that round. This is different from ball golf where a player shooting a 90 on a course with a 72 rating will get a handicap of 18 only if the slope is 113 (average). If the slope is lower, the handicap will be lower than 18 and the handicap higher if the slope is higher.
In disc golf, the rating a player gets for shooting a certain number of throws more than the SSA will be the same on all courses with the same SSA. If the SSA is 60 on a longer course with few trees or a shorter course with lots of trees, elevation and hazards, each throw is worth 7.9 rating points even though the courses appear dramatically different. For courses with 45 SSA, each throw is always worth 12.8 rating points.
