Just played a course with 3 1/2 X 8 ft pads, wooden framed filled w/ gravel. While they were well-built and a good idea, they wer VERY difficult, would be better to have no frame at all. No real run up possible.

Box needs to be big enough and positioned to allow several run up/shot options, both LH and RH. 5ft wide min. Could be narrower at the front if it is wider at the back. 8 ft long min, if for a true driving hole.

Some of the worse have been because they weren't long enough, usually the older courses, but I've seen it in on newer ones as well.

So my recommendation is to err on too big, then not big enough. I hope that helps.

Bigger is better. A large flat tee area for longer holes allows me to concentrate on my release more, not having to worry about footing, or rolling an ankle.
I have not seen one yet, but I think the best tee would be " Y " shaped, with the open end facing away from the basket. This would allow players to use a safe runup from either left or right, ending at the same hack line.
