I believe most if not all divisions had several holes on courses where they could throw full power drivers. However, they may not have been good enough to throw them safely or take the risk such that mid ranges were a better choice for them. In fact, being able to throw putter and midrange discs as far as others can throw drivers is one sign a player can play at the highest skill level and this ability should be tested by the courses.
Here's one of my favorite quotes from Jack Nicklaus, arguably one of the longest hitters in his prime. "Golf is primarily a game of precision, not power. As Jack always says, "It's a thinking man's game. That's what makes it fun." And his belief is that length in itself does not spell quality, let alone fun."
