"think about intermediate women, advanced grandmasters, young juniors, etc. It takes them 2 legit throws to get to putting range. Par 4."

Be careful about telling us MG's that a 371 foot open hole (especially one that is down hill a little) is a par-4 or we'll go off and "eagle" the hole a whole bunch of times .
It's a par-3 for advanced grandmasters. Period. I've had innumerable 2's on holes longer than that (no, I'm not counting 'fairway deuces') and I'm almost a SGM.

Nevin is a great course that would be better with 3 sets of tees per hole.

In a place as saturated as charlotte there really isnt a need for that. There are other courses the cater to that skill bracket that would use short pads at nevin. Why make every course catered to all skill levels when you can just build a seperate courses for each skill level

Because those of us with kids. It's nice to be able to take my boys out to play a course with multiple pads. I can play longer pads and they can play shorter pads. Much more enjoyable for all of us.

Not all who play Disc Golf are mid-20s single males with no life outside of the sport. We have wife's and kids who play.

Nice looking hole! I'm throwing my old trusty orc on a tad bit of anhyzer here! It's gonna float to the right past those trees then fade right next the basket.

Except nobody would play them because you'd be walking so far from the previous pin to get to the short tee. The vast majority of players stops at the first tee they come to on the walk from the last basket and never go looking for additional short or long tees.
