Default Tee Pad Size

Have you seen a course where the tee pads are too large? My local course in Oahe Downstream State Park, Powerhouse Ally has this problem with almost too large of tee pad that plying on the far left of pad can almost be an advantage on some holes.

Have you ever seen Tee pads that need to be a little smaller to not help the player out when throwing from the farthest left side?

I've encountered plenty of tees that were larger than they needed to be, but not because they provided advantages to players. It was because it was a waste of materials. A 6' X 14' tee on a 180 foot hole is overkill no matter how you slice it.

Yeah The ones I mention are as if they put the tee pad in sideways with a between 8-10 foot width by 6-7 foot length. Yeah you can tell somebody messed up going sideways with the pads but the State Park kept the pads because they had used the Rebar in the pad to help with the shifting soil in winter in my area, Rough winters cause shifting soil in parts of the Northern Plains. Getting those pads out would have been a nightmare as to why the State Park did not fix them and in some tournaments if conditions are fine they do a small mark in Spray paint on the front end of the pad as to how far out one can throw from on those pads. These pads are better then the ones on in town course where they made the pad okay size maybe a tiny bit small but they taper in to the front by mistake instead of the other way around taper to the back, people pitting it in were thinking have the tee pad tapered the way a grass run pad is for Javelin, that was the excuse those putting the pads in used. The head of the City Parks department told the people how the pads for the disc golf course were to be put in yet they still did them backwards. These pads on in town course will need replacement or at least a repave over with quickcreate or other like product if done correctly.
