I'm thinking the drop zones would really be more for missing a mando vs OB. I've only played 25 courses, what do you see at your local courses, and how do you handle this?
Whether to shoot again from the tee or from where the disc went out of bounds is a choice the player makes for themself. It's a free choice, either way is allowed. And either way you count the first throw and the penalty stroke, so you're throwing your third shot. I find throwing from where the disc went out of bounds is usually best, but I do know a couple places where re-teeing is the better option.

The only times I've seen drop zones for OB are for lake holes. There are a couple of them locally and I've seen lake drop zones in other places too.
