I like it. If it were me, I wouldn't add the penalty stroke for advancing to the green from the 90-foot tee. It's a complication to the rules. It might be rare, but on really windy days some pro and advanced players will get to that 90-foot tee and miss the green, too. I'd maintain the buncr pattern.
Also, beginners don't need any more throws added to their score. Let them shoot 2nd shot from the green. They already are penalized by being put as far away as possible for missing the island.
Please keep track of the scores by rating on this hole. And, if possible, note which throw made the green. This will be vary valuable data for future hole designs.
