I think it's something that should obviously be avoided if possible but if you put one tee very close to the green area or tee area of back to back holes it shouldn't be that big of a problem. In the middle of a fairway well then you're possibly going to cause some problems, especially if the holes aren't back to back and the group playing up doesn't really know if anybody is over there.

At my home course #4 plays slightly up a hill and a road is almost directly behind the green area. #5 plays off a hill across #4 right at the front of the green area. If you're playing up #4 you more than likely have been behind the group now teeing off on #5 and know to wait before you go up to green. Secondly because #5 crosses right at the green area of #4 more than likely the group playing #4 hasn't even gotten up to the green by the time the group on #5 has teed off. The biggest danger is anyone teeing off on #4 hitting the group walking across the fairway playing #5.

It's annoying because when you're behind a group you have to wait til they drive #5 and cross before you can drive #4 but it's the way it is. Actually you have to wait for the group teeing off on #4 when you're on #3 because of the design. The course pretty much crammed a bunch of holes in a small area right there because of park limitations. The designer is currently working on a redesign to fix these problems.
