You are absolutely correct, and there is no bonus points.

Few years back PGA had started one tournament where the scoring is different. They award points for each birdie (-2), eagle (-5), par (0), bogie (+1), double (+2) and so on so forth. Players score is calculated each hole. The lowest score wins the tourney. This was to encourage players to play aggressively and attack the course and make it sellable to the TV viewers. But that is just one tournament all year long.

Those who are interested, I would suggest them to visit a "driving range" where you can rent ($5 US) a bucket of golf balls keep hacking at them to your hearts content. I presume if you say you are a first timer I bet they will give you a discount and free clubs to hit with. The trick is once you hit your first ball you will be hooked for life. Then they would make money.
