Par is the expected number of shots to get the ball in the hole. A bogey is when you take one shot more than par. A birdie is when you take one shot less, and an eagle is when you take two shots less.

An eagle is a hole made two strokes under par, a birdie is a hole made one stroke under par, and a bogey is a hole made one stroke over par.

A bogey is one over par. A birdie is one under par, an eagle is two under par, an albatross is three under and a condor is four under and rarely seen.
