they never said they don't want short holes. they want to make the course more chalenging for them wich does not neccesarily mean it plays harder for the beginner. adding alternate pins usually does not effect the overall play of a beginner level player most alternate pins are within 30-40 feet of the original(or originall fairway) the most chalanging thing about alternates is that you aren't throwing the same shot every time.
