DGPT Dream 18 Course: What is the best Hole 16 on Tour?

By Baker Helton

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 determined the fan vote for the back nine holes. Now that the picks are in, vote each day to help determine the winner!

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 15 Winner

Known as ‘The Gauntlet’ Hole 15 at Hornet’s Nest made its way into the DGPT Dream 18 with 30% of the vote. Receiving votes but settling for second and third were Brewster Ridge and Idlewild.

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. We determined the dream hole one the first day, hole two the second day, 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!

Hole Sixteen

Fountain Hills: At 327 ft, Hole Sixteen at Fountain Hills is a wide-open shot save for one tree to the right of the basket that serves as a mandatory. Players must navigate around the right side (another hyzer shot) for some added difficulty. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Vista del Camino: Hole Sixteen at Vista is 390 ft uphill Par 3. Players are throwing to the right of one mando tree before hoping their shot skips up the hill towards the basket. Players who skip long risk going out of bounds or having a death putt coming back to the basket. Players who land short of the hill have a tricky uphill putt. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Brazos Park East: Hole Sixteen at the bEast is a 609 ft Par 4. The hole plays across a field and then downhill to a tree-shaded green. Players are looking to get their drives to the edge of the hill for a look at birdie, but players who have elite distance may make it into the gap and have a look at birdie. Check out the flyover from Jomez’s coverage of the 2020 Waco Annual Charity Open.

**3rd Place** Disc Side of Heaven: Disc Side of Heaven’s Hole Sixteen is an 855 ft Par 5 for MPO and 520 ft Par 4 for FPO. The hole plays across the course’s rolling hills and then across the pond from hole six. MPO players with elite distance may make it to the top of the hill above the pond and then through across for a look at eagle. Check out Double G’s eagle on the hole during the final round of the 2019 Jonesboro Open.  See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.

Gleneagles: Hole Sixteen at San Francisco is a 285 ft island hole. Players are throwing from an elevated basket down to an island green. There is one large tree in the middle of the fairway that players must throw around. If players miss the island, they do have a drop zone from just outside C2 that presents an opportunity to save par. Check out Madison Walker’s Par Save from the 2019 SFOCheck out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself. 

Blue Lake Park: The 795 ft Par 4 for MPO and 525 ft FPO Hole Sixteen features a relatively wide fairway starting that narrows for the second shot. The green drops down slightly and is protected by a row of trees. It plays as the hardest hole on the course for the MPO division. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.

Kensington Toboggan: At 364 ft Hole Sixteen is one of the shorter holes on the course. Players are throwing slightly downhill to a green that features a few guardian trees. If players make it past the guardian trees, they are poised to grab the last “easy birdie” of the round.  Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.

**Winner** Idlewild: Hole Sixteen at Idlewild is a 969 ft Par 5. Players are throwing through a rolling field down to a tree and creek protected island green. The peak of the hill is 569 feet from the tee giving players another 400 feet to the basket. To gain a look at eagle, players look to land at the hill’s crest for a shot down to the pin. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.

Eureka Lake: This 606 ft Par 4 features a mando that keeps players to the left and out of a road the runs along the right of the fairway. Players are hoping to make it 415 ft to the corner for a look at birdie. Players can take an aggressive roller line that has resulted in an eagle before for Garrett Gurthie in 2018The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.

Sunset Hills: Hole Sixteen at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing down an open fairway before the hole cuts to the right into the green. The 352 ft Par 3 hole sees players trying to avoid two trees in the fairway to have a look at birdie. On the approach to the green, players want to avoid going long as there is a steep valley behind the basket. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Northwood: Hole Sixteen at Northwood is an extension of an existing hole at the course. At 1040 ft for MPO and 492 ft for FPO, this Par 5/4 plays down an initially open fairway for the drive. There is a roughly 200 ft pinch point of woods that players have to navigate through that can cause some trouble. After that is the FPO tee pad and an open look at the basket perched alongside a hill, see how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Maple Hill: At 530 ft, this Par 4 for FPO and Par 3 for MPO plays through a wooded fairway to an open green. Players who navigate the woods successfully may have a C2 putt for birdie.  Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.

Brewster Ridge: Hole Sixteen at Brewster Ridge is 400 ft playing the top of a hill down a wooded fairway. Players who keep their drives clean off the tee will have a look at birdie. It is possible though to make the green and still be stuck behind a tree or with unfavorable footing, so don’t count it as an easy birdie. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.

**2nd Place** Fox Run Meadows: Hole Sixteen at Fox Run is 725 ft for MPO and 600 ft for FPO. The fairway of the Par 4 plays through the woods and finishes to the left on an open green. Players try to keep their drive in the middle of the fairway and avoid the woods. If they succeed, they are then looking to make the green and not finish to the left of the fairway in the rough. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.

Hornets Nest: Hole Sixteen at Hornet’s Nest is a 357 ft Par 3. The hole plays across an open field and into the woods. With a sloping fairway in the woods, the difficulty of the approach keeps the hole playing to par. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
