Here's a tee strategy I've used (color may vary):
Red tee: Beginner Clubs White Tee: Pro Clubs Blue Tee: Master Clubs Black Tee: Tour Set-up
Par 4's: Design the hole to play how you wish with Master clubs. Then determine the club used on the approach with Masters clubs (lets say 7 iron). Then mark off in the fairway the 7 iron approach distance using the pro clubs and beginner clubs. From those markers measure the carry and roll distance of the driver (or whatever club off the tee) in each respective club set and find a good teeing ground, playing with angles until the hole plays as you wish. I usually try to work the angles so people who use Master clubs from red tees will have very awkward shots. For tour tees I usually just change the angle or distance to make the hole play more diffculty if needed. Sometimes they will be the same as the masters.
In the end its something like Driver/ 7 iron for everybody, maybe Driver/ 5 iron for tour and sometimes Driver/9 for red tees to adjust for the spin difference.
Par 5's: Same principal, but things can change if it's a 3 shot Par 5 so further adjustments may be needed.
Reachable for one, reachable for all. 3 shotter for one, 3 shotter for all.
Par 3's: Pretty self explanatory here, but I usually try to avoid super long par 3's with the red tees.
Anyway, I think I made that sound more confusing than it is. Just make sure they are flat and call it a day.

He put it really well there. There's one hole at the Animal where the front tees are a whole 100 yards or so in front of the masters tees. That's just where it landed after measuring pretty much as ghee said above. That's the only way it wouldn't be a three shot hole for beginner clubs, so just moving them forward 10 or 20 yards can't always give the best result. I hope you'll put as much thought into it too, or people playing a different clubset than you may not see your vision
I have a par 3 at The Swiss Wall that I'm designing at the moment where the front tees out of the three are 60 yards shorter than the back tees. I won't say in front as I've designed that hole with the three tees approaching the green from different angles.
