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 1 Winner
The winner from yesterday’s Hole 1 vote came from the MVP Open and the Maple Hill Disc Golf Course. The 835 ft, Par 4, is one of the defining holes of disc golf, so it comes as no surprise that the hole won over 63% of the vote. In second was Fountain Hills and Toboggan and Lake Eureka tied for 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 first day, today (the second day), we will pick the second 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 703 ft, the Hole Two Par 4 is the longest hole on the Fountain Hills course. With the OB fountain pond running along the left side of the fairway, it creates a treacherous fairway and a fast green. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Vista del Camino: Hole Two at Vista is another early birdie to get for the pros. The 369 ft Par 3 has an open fairway to a left-finishing protected green. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Brazos Park East: Another Par 4, this Hole Two has been eagled a few times. Most notable was Eric Oakley’s eagle during the 2019 Waco Annual Charity Open. At 616 ft, it’s gettable, but players deal with a stiff breeze coming off the Brazos River, which can make the drive testy. Check out the flyover from Jomez’s coverage of the 2020 Waco Annual Charity Open.
Disc Side of Heaven: At 820 ft, Disc Side of Heaven’s Hole Two is the longest one on Tour. This Par 4 monster plays across the rolling hills of the DSOH course and up to a picturesque green that features one of the signature old-growth trees arching over the basket. See how the discs fly the hole thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.
Gleneagles: With thick rough on the left, the 378 ft Par 3 Hole 2 at Gleneagles plays more like an island green than a traditional hole. Most players are looking to land their righty hyzer or lefty anhyzer drives inside C2 or C1 for a safe par or birdie. Even in the flyover from the 2018 San Francisco Open BigSexy comments on how this is a deceivingly treacherous hole.
Blue Lake Park: At 425 ft this Par 3, park-style hole is longer on paper than it looks in person. The hole probably looks that way because it plays slightly uphill. Players do have to contend with one mando tree a little over 100 ft from the basket, but outside of that, it is a wide-open shot. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.
Kensington Toboggan: At 720 ft, this hole was a Par 5 in 2018 but then moved to a Par 4 in 2019 due to the number of eagle’s players were able to get. With a massive uphill swing, this hole is not for the faint of heart. Once players make it to the top of the hill, they are greeted with an open putting green to try and not add too many strokes to their scorecard. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open but comeback to watch Paul McBeth grab the eagle from his second round at that same event.
**2nd Place** Idlewild: Hole 2 at Idlewild presents another Par 4 for the pros. A wood-lined fairway opens up to an island green that is across a walking path with an OB pond on the left. This hole is not for the faint of heart, with players looking to land safely on the green with an upshot to snag a rare birdie or a solid par. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.
Eureka Lake: Possibly one of the more forgiving Par 4’s out of the Hole 2’s, this one is only 615 ft. Eureka Lake’s Hole 2 plays along the lake on the left side of the fairway with a roped OB on the right side. It fades gently to the right to a semi-protected green. If players keep their drives in the fairway off the tee, they are usually set up well for a look at birdie. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will show you how it’s done.
Sunset Hills: At Sunset Hills, we get to see one of the few “aceable” Hole 2’s on Tour. At 313 ft, this Par 3 is a hole most are looking to birdie. The only trouble is an OB cart path that runs to the left and long of the basket. You can see what the FPO division has been playing from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Northwood: At 419 ft, this wooded, downhill hole is easily the hardest Par 3 of the Hole 2’s on Tour. A player has two options, play it safe and throw their drive to the top of the hill and then throw downhill at the basket for a three or go for broke and throw a drive that hopefully will make it through the rough and avoid the snaking creek at the bottom of the hill. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Maple Hill: At 350 ft, Hole 2 at Maple Hill is another deceivingly tricky hole. Players have no obstruction off the drive but must navigate a clump of trees on the left of the fairway and an OB stone wall on the right to have a look at a birdie. This Par 3 is a physical representation of a separator hole. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.
**3rd Place** Brewster Ridge: The last of the Par 4 Hole 2’s on Tour, this wooded hole is what defines Brewster Ridge. At 550 ft, players work to avoid the rough and make it through a snaking fairway. There is an OB wall on the right of the fairway, but it usually does not come into play unless players are looking to attack the green for a birdie. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.
Fox Run Meadows: At 270 ft, the Hole 2 at Fox Run Meadows is the shortest Hole 2 on Tour. While trees dot the fairway, it is a pretty easy birdie hole. Players at Pro Tour events see this hole elevated for this reason. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.
**Winner** Hornets Nest: One of the defining holes at Hornet’s Nest, Hole 2, is a 330 ft island hole that is only in play for tournaments. Most players attack the basket from a right-hyzer line looking to at least stick the island if not snag an ace. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
