Not only does that open up both sets of tees to a wider range of players, but it also opens up alternating between the two for sake of variety.

Having to have so many players be resigned to only half of the infrastructure is a waste of a good course IMO.
Well that work great for 'you' individually, but what about other people?

I believe there should be a time, short tees, short pin positions, where a player who throws 250ish' has a decent chance to to throw par. I also believe those baskets can be backed up to challenge a decent golfer.

Likewise, I believe the back tees in the front position should be a excellent challenge for a skilled player, but the back pin positions should eliminate all but the very best of players.

Then there should be tournament tees, where you can challenge the very best in the world. This is a assortment of challenging back tee positions, as well as some extreme pin positions.

I do not see why courses can not accommodate all levels of players. Even a short course like Gillies in Richmond VA had a crazy tournament setup that could challenge the best of the best, and I threw a putter around a lot of that course.
