I see nothing wrong with a long hole having a short basket provided there is a designation showing such on the tee sign.

Grodney's idea of taking a long hole and splitting it into two shorter ones would also work in some applications. I would recommend the shorter holes be given add-on designations (i.e. call them 6A, and 6B while the entire long hole is just 6). I don't know if I'd want to see an entire course like that though. It might cause bottlenecking when you have an advanced group playing the long hole coming up on a rec group playing the two shorts.

agreed. this only involves 3 holes. unfortunately, they are consecutive, but i don't anticipate enough 'traffic' to cause a problem. hopefully, i'm wrong about that!

As always, keeping the regular holes in a "good" range of length would be a goal.

IMHO:
Pros:
- It would provide more variety.
- Accommodate a wider range of skill levels.

Cons:
- It would certainly make the course at least a bit (if not a lot) more confusing to people who play the course once or twice.
- Could create safety issues, as each fairway is two fairways in one.

Other thoughts:
- This would work much better on relatively open courses (as opposed to woodsy courses).
- If this is the only course in the area, and modified to accomodate a wider range of skill levels, how can it not attract more activity? Likely to result waiting on the tee during peak hours.

I just agreed to design and install a 9-hole course on private land. The guy that owns the property was a member of a rotary club where I did a talk on Disc Golf last summer. He says his son plays and he wants to suprise him when he comes home with the kids in the spring.

The design will have several of these tee options. The design will have a short 9 for the gentleman and his wife. Theyve never played but will once the course is installed. The other course will be much longer to give his son a challenge. His son is a regular player.

I'm looking forward to this challenge and will share pictures and design of some holes when done.

I think it actually works really well on a wooded course. When there's a defined fairway it's easy to tell if people are out ahead of you. In an open area it's easier to lose track of what hole other groups are playing.

"- If this is the only course in the area..."
i realize that i've unintentionally mislead you. this is, or will be, the only course in 'town', but there are quite a number of good courses in the 'area'.

we have a limited area, which is difficult and in some cases dangerous to work with, yet is part of a facility that hosts top-class soccer tournaments (and sometimes ultimate). the facility deserves a top-notch course. so...........why am i the one doing this?.......... actually, there are 2 of us, but still......
