The DGPT Dream 18 Fan Vote is sponsored by ZUCA. We have partnered with them to give away a free Trekker cart to the fan who best determines the fan vote for the back nine holes. Now you have your picks in, vote each day to help your picks win!
In disc golf, there are discussions, debates, and things everyone can agree upon from the start. We are not sure where this one would end up, so we are letting you the fans decide. Over the next three and half weeks, we will be hosting a series of votes here on our site to determine what the fans dream 18 holes would be on Tour.
Hole 9 Winner
The Winner of the Hole 9 Dream 18 Vote was Gleneagles 747 ft downhill bomber. In second place was Fox Run Meadows followed closely by The bEast at Brazos.
How does the voting work?
At 9 AM ET each morning, the polls open. You have until 8 AM ET the next day to vote on which hole you would put on your dream 18. Yesterday we determined the dream hole nine on the ninth day, today (the tenth day), we will pick the tenth hole, etc. With the release of each poll, we will announce the winner of the previous day. We hope to see each region get behind their courses and help elevate the disc golf holes they think make their course genuinely unique.
Below is a brief description of each hole along with a link to the hole flyover. Give it a read and a watch and vote at the bottom of the article!
Let’s get started!
Fountain Hills: At 332 ft, Hole Ten at Fountain Hills is one of the only holes on the course where players must contend with trees. Players are throwing through a park-style fairway with a few trees leading up to the green. With one last tree guarding the basket, players who do not make it past the basket or to the left of the green off the tee are left with an obstructed view. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Vista del Camino: Hole Ten at Vista is a 651 ft Par 4. Players are navigating a right-fading green that is dotted with trees. To the right of the fairway is a path just beyond a tree-line that plays OB, adding some challenge this year. Players usually opt for a roller or a sidearm off the tee to have a look at birdie. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Brazos Park East: Hole Ten at the bEast is a 591 ft Par 4 for MPO and 491 ft for FPO. Players throw out into an open fairway that curves left towards the basket. There are a few trees in the fairway that can cause trouble, but players who stay in the fairway will have a clean shot to the green. At the green, players try to avoid going beyond the basket to not roll down a hill and back into the woods. Check out the flyover from Jomez’s coverage of the 2020 Waco Annual Charity Open.
Disc Side of Heaven: Disc Side of Heaven’s Hole Ten is a 360 ft Par 3. The closest thing to a park-style hole on the course, players throw down a wooded, low-ceiling fairway towards the green. The green is on a small hill that promises a rollaway on almost every side. An elevated basket adds to the difficulty of the hole. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.
Gleneagles: Hole Ten at San Francisco is a 956 ft Par 5 for FPO and 1,188 ft Par 5 for MPO. Players are ripping drives down a golf fairway. OB lines both sides of the fairway. The basket is then tucked another 150 ft into a wooded green to the right of the fairway. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself.
Blue Lake Park: The 295 ft, Hole Ten, curves right playing along a wood-lined right of the fairway. Players are throwing either an anhyzer or sidearm to have a look at birdie. Upshots and drives need to be short of the basket because going long can spell an OB rollaway. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.
Kensington Toboggan: At 370 ft, Hole Ten is an uphill, Par 3. Players throw from a flat fairway up towards a basket set on the side of the hill. Players whose drives cut in too early deal with a natural OB ravine that splits the sloped fairway. Players who want to avoid the natural OB typically play to the base of the hill and then throw an upshot to the basket for an easy three. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.
Idlewild: Hole Ten at Idlewild is a 368 ft Par 3. Players are navigating a wooded fairway dotted with skinny trees to a well-protected green. The hole is not for the faint of heart, but a clean drive can offer a rewarding bonus birdie. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.
Eureka Lake: This 450 ft Par 3 plays across a newly (rain added) marsh, which encourages players to make it to the green in one-shot. There is OB to the left of the fairway and then a creek behind the basket that players must avoid. There are some small saplings inside the circle that players must navigate while putting. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.
Sunset Hills: Hole Ten at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing out of a protected teeing area to a basket slightly uphill. The 301 ft hole plays somewhat to the right from the tee. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Northwood: Hole Ten at Northwood uses one of the existing teepads from the previous layout but nearly doubles the hole in length. At 560 ft for MPO and 465 for FPO, this Par 4 sees most players throwing a straight shot off the tee, hoping to land just inside the woods at the original pin placement. Landing here allows players to make the left turn of the fairway with ease and possibly have a look at birdie. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Maple Hill: At 380 ft for MPO and 255 ft for FPO, this Par 3 plays uphill and then to an elevated basket. Most players are aiming to get to the base of the high wall with their drive. Players with significant distance will put their drives behind the basket but are then faced with a death putt for birdie. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.
Brewster Ridge: Hole Ten at Brewster Ridge is 470 ft for MPO and 410 ft for FPO, playing as a Par 3. Players are throwing slightly downhill into a green fairway. A few trees are surrounding the green that comes into play, but outside of that, if players stay clean off the tee, they may have a shot at birdie. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.
Fox Run Meadows: Hole Ten at Fox Run is a 295 ft must-get birdie. The basket is placed slightly downhill in a corner where if players go long or right, they are OB. It’s easy to overthink this throw and end up settling for par. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.
Hornets Nest: Hole Ten at Hornet’s Nest is a 396 ft Par 3 for MPO and 496 Par 4 for FPO. The hole plays downhill to the left. With trees lining and in the fairway, players are hoping to keep their drives clean off the tee but not finish left too early in the rough. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
