Par 27 is a Canadian sports television series which aired on CBC Television from 1978 to 1980.


Each episode featured a contest between two golfers who each played nine balls towards a hole. Each shot was rated at par 3, thus the total of "Par 27" per player. Of the nine shots per player, three were from the tee, three were situated 50 yards from the green and the remaining three from a bunker.[1][2] Al Balding provided commentary with host Ernie Afaganis.
