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 10 Winner
In one of our closest votes to date, Brewster Ridge barely edged out The bEast for best Hole 10 on Tour. With over 65% of the vote, these two holes were hands out the top on people’s list. Maple Hill rounded out the podium in third.
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 one the tenth day, today (the eleventh day), we will pick the eleventh 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 368 ft, Hole Eleven at Fountain Hills is set on the side of a hill. Players are throwing towards a left, down-sloping green. With two guardian palm trees guarding the basket, it’s a perfect opportunity for a rollaway or a bank-shot. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Vista del Camino: Hole Eleven at Vista is a 759 ft Par 4 for MPO and a 543 ft Par 4 for FPO. There are two mandos alongside the left side of the fairway to keep players away from an OB walkway. There is not much obstruction in the fairway, but the green is slightly sloped, adding difficulty to the hole. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Brazos Park East: Hole Eleven at the bEast is a 279 ft Par 3. Players throw from an elevated tee pad across to a basket on top of another hill. Players are looking to stay clean off the tee to have a shot at birdie. Players who come up short have an uphill putt and the risk of rolling out of the fairway. Most players will throw their drives long to make sure they have an effortless look at birdie. 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 Eleven is a 560 ft Par 4. There is a mando right off the tee to take away the Simon back-door line. Players are looking to make the corner left, which sits at 385 ft from the tee. When players make that corner, they have a clear upshot to the basket and can card an easy birdie three. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.
Gleneagles: Hole Eleven at San Francisco is a 302 ft Par 3. Players are throwing a sidearm or anhyzer off the tee to avoid a wooded right-side of the fairway. With very little OB on the hole, this is an opportunity for players to snag an easy birdie. The only OB comes into play for players whose anhyzers come out early where there are three OB bunkers and a green to the left of the basket. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself.
Blue Lake Park: The 670 ft, Hole Eleven, turns left with an island green that players must land on in their second shot. Players cannot see the basket until they make the green. With a blind landing zone, the hole is a demanding Par 4. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.
Kensington Toboggan: At 358 ft, Hole Eleven is an uphill, monster Par 3. Players struggle to keep their drives high enough to make it up the hill to the basket as they traverse 51 ft of elevation. If a player can make it up to C1, they are probably grabbing a birdie, but outside of that, this demanding hole plays true to par. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.
**2nd Place** Idlewild: Hole Eleven at Idlewild is a 242 ft Par 3. Players are throwing straight across a ravine to an elevated basket. The shortest hole on the course, most players are aiming for the base of the pyramid to have an easy birdie. This hole was famously aced by Paul McBeth and Jessica Weese on film during practice in 2018. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.
Eureka Lake: This 300 ft Par 3 plays down a tightly roped OB-lined fairway. Players are either attacking the hole straight with a putter or midrange or a sidearm out over the OB. The right-hand hyzer shot is obstructed by a brush-lined OB creek on the right side of the fairway. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.
Sunset Hills: Hole Eleven at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing down from an elevated tee pad to a basket that has an OB pond long and a path of OB rough in front that makes the hole play like an island green. The 393 ft hole plays more like 325-350 due to the elevation change. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Northwood: Hole Eleven at Northwood is 380 ft for MPO and 260 ft for FPO. This extremely wooded hole demands a perfectly executed drive for players to have a hope at birdie. With trees dotting the middle of the fairway, players must choose their discs wisely to stay clean off the tee. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
**Winner** Maple Hill: At 780 ft for MPO and 670 ft for FPO, this Par 4 plays downhill across the famous Christmas tree farm that the course plays around. Players are looking to make a landing zone roughly 400 ft from the tee pad to have a clean look at the baskets they are playing. For the FPO, the basket fades to the left and is perched atop a rock wall. The MPO basket is tucked another 110 ft into the woods with an open green once the players get to it. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.
**3rd Place** Brewster Ridge: Hole Eleven at Brewster Ridge is 615 ft downhill Par 4. Players have two fairways to navigate with the one running down the right side of the fairway, being a little more forgiving. To make it to the green, players must get past a bank of trees that protect it. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.
Fox Run Meadows: Hole Eleven at Fox Run is a 575 ft Par 4. Playing along the back of a levy, the fairway curves slightly to the left before taking a jump over a rock wall and downhill to a wooded green. Players have an open fairway drive and, with enough distance, can have a clean look from the top of the hill down into the green. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.
Hornets Nest: Hole Eleven at Hornet’s Nest is a 474 ft uphill Par 4. Players who make it up the hill and cut the corner right will be about 230-200 ft from the basket. With a tightly wooded fairway and trees interfering with making the corner, this hole is not without its challenges. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
