Howdy. A bit wordy, but here you go:
First, someone changed the colors on the headers, and made other changes here, but best I can tell, you are correct: 1 (yellow) is short tees (available on holes 5, 7, 8, 15, & 20) and baskets (holes 2, 19 & 22), 2 (burnt orange?) is short tees and the longer permanent basket option, 3 (orange) is long tees to shorter baskets, and 4 (gold) is long to long. I(TM)m confused on hole 19 orange listing what appears to be another ‘long(TM) pin position.

Next, it should be pointed out that the hole distances listed here do not match up exactly with the new signage (since the renumbering, laser measuring, and elimination of the letter holes). I keep planning to get out there, take new pictures of the signs and post them, plus updates here, but haven(TM)t been on that side of town lately. One benefit of the tee sign pictures would be to see the nicknames Fred assigned the holes, since so many folks tend to use three different ‘references(TM) when referring to a hole (for a lost disc, for instance). ‘Original(TM) numbering included five letter holes after 2 and another after ‘old(TM) hole 4 (now 9). Current numbering is simply 1-24. DGPT numbering drops six holes (please see below).

Hole by hole:
1) There appears to be a shorter basket position, but I(TM)ve never seen it moved (played around here 9 years)
2) There are two permanent baskets, so somebody must have decided to list here in a way that there was a pre-set option to use the scorebook for either
3) Formerly hole A. There is a shorter, seldom used pin position to the right, before the creek
4) Formerly hole B. Not used in DGPT layout
5) Formerly hole C. Not used in DGPT layout. There is an alternate ‘long(TM) tee around the far corner of the pond
6) Formerly hole D. Not used in DGPT layout. There are two pin positions, and they do change it occasionally
7) Formerly hole E. DGPT hole 4. They(TM)ve tinkered with the (one?) basket position
8) Formerly hole 3. DGPT hole 5. Two tees, basket has almost always been on the first peninsula, but there are three options listed here
9) Formerly hole 4. DGPT hole 6. For nine years, the basket has always been ‘long(TM) across the path, but there are three options listed here
10) Formerly hole F. Not used in DGPT layout
11) Formerly hole 5. DGPT hole 7
12) Formerly hole 6. DGPT hole 8
13) Formerly hole 7. DGPT hole 9. For nine years, the basket has always been tucked into the grove of pines, but there are two options listed here
14) Formerly hole 8. DGPT hole 10. For nine years, the basket has always been top of the hill between two trees, but there are two options listed here
15) Formerly hole 9. DGPT hole 11. For nine years, the basket has always been on the terrace, but I(TM)ve heard of another (not listed here), and Fred created a longer tee after the pros made this one look too easy. It(TM)s about 40 feet longer, not 10
16) Formerly hole 10. DGPT hole 12. For nine years, the basket has always been in the grove left of the ‘meadow(TM) ridge after the dogleg, but there is a shorter option listed here
17) Formerly hole 11. DGPT hole 13. For nine years, the basket has always been on the small island green, but there is a shorter option listed here
18) Formerly hole 12. Not used in DGPT layout
19) Formerly hole 13. DGPT hole 14. Two permanent baskets (short not used in DGPT layout), I(TM)ve never heard of the alternate long listed here
20) Formerly hole 14. DGPT hole 15. Two permanent tees (short not used in DGPT layout)
21) Formerly hole 15. DGPT hole 16
22) Formerly hole 16. DGPT hole 17. Two permanent baskets (short not used in DGPT layout)
23) Formerly hole 17. Not used in DGPT layout
24) Formerly hole 18. DGPT hole 18
