Yet we celebrate fairway width and large scale(particularly modern) courses routinely.
Width of corridor and (seasonally) angles can be created/maintained via mowing unirrigated of rough as opposed to large irrigated fairways.

and then there's the ball/equipment thing and the growth in length and width it creates/demands in newer and renovated courses.
To say nothing of the demand for a specific built tee for every level/class of player, as opposed to simply playing the course,(when landforms allow) rather than "your" course.
Perhaps having your own "par" as we did as kids(even 7's=126, even 6's =s 108 etc.), rather than building tees all over the place to make a hole the same par for everyone.
(see Nick's thread re simply changing par which I agree with in general)
