Along these same lines, I don't belong to a club so I'm not willing to pay full price to play the forward tees, but there's a par 3 course right down the street from me that I play during my lunch break on a lot of days that I can't get out to a full round. It's fantastic for hitting 2-3 balls from 70-170 yards and then getting in a lot of real-world chipping and putting practice. It's also fun as hell.I routinely play the front tees at my course (yes, the one's ALL the way up). This is loads of fun and you'd be surprised that you can still bogey and double from those tees if your <100 game isn't dialed in.
A couple weeks ago the Sunday group I play with started a game on Sundays where we alternated the front tees (5500 yards) with the back tees (7200 yards) every other hole. The yardage comes out to the same as our blue/white combo tees. That was a blast.
I fully support changing tees and playing around with different setups.
