It seems in general having basket options is very confusing to players. You can have as many tees as you like but for some reason multiple baskets is not as accepted. Dunno why.

History says, First ball golf course actually played "out" then back "in" using the same pins. This in effect doubling the number of holes built.

They played the same greens, usually with two holes cut per green, not the same hole played out and back.

St. Andrews (Old Course) is still largely comprised of double greens.

This is a pretty scary proposition as far as I'm concerned. A little griplock here, a little extra hyzer there... can you say "FOOOOUUUUUURRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!"

it works best when you have two different colored baskets on each hole. Soon enough, you'll find alternate tees and could make it really fun. Hard to make safe on a popular course though.

Or two different brands of baskets. If you have a discatcher with the band for one set and any other kind of basket for the other set it's real easy to tell the long and short basket from one another.

You'll see the gold layout combines 2 holes to make one longer one.
When I tried to explain this concept (with a finished example) during a round a couple of years ago, Martin Dewgarita had a classic response, "Is that an actual hole, or an idea" ?

Stoney Hill includes one of these designs. In one layout it's two different holes of 223' and 476'; in the longer layout, they're combined for one 714' hole.

You can get away with a lot on a lightly-played private course.

But the way the course plays and the way these are on the holes, thy aren't confusing at all, and can't be called a saftey issue.

Lemon Lake Silver/Gold has a boatload of dual tees/dual pins painted silver and yellow/gold accordingly.
I hear http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=4756does this too.

Carly's playground has blue and pink tees and blue and pink baskets for each hole, meaning 4 potential shots for each of the 18 holes. It's well marked so no confusion on what you're shooting at.
