I am going to middle school golf practice tomorrow and having the 8th graders play from the forward tees. Just to have fun and to shoot low. May do the same thing at the match on Thursday.
Throw in some driveable par 4's with lots of greenside trouble and see who lays up and who goes for it. Should tell you a lot about their confidence.

The problem I seen with most tough courses is you either have the shot or don't. In a lot cases they are poorly designed because you need to land in a certain spot in order to hit the green and you have no way to recover if you don't layup. Learning how to par a hole after a bad shot is an essential skill they need to learn.

That doesn't mean the course has to be difficult.

Yes it doesn't need to be difficult. But you do want some elements of challenge lots of executive courses with no hazards that are cheap and short but not really good to play.
I tend to think Fazio Designed courses in general are great courses to learn how to play and would tend to not want a Pete Dye type of target golf course. I am sure there are other designers out there as well but those two come to my mind.
