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. You have until April 9th at 9 AM ET to get your picks in. Submit your picks now!
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 6 Winner
The winner from Monday’s Hole 6 vote came from Disc Side of Heaven and the Jonesboro Open. The 315 ft island hole requires players to throw across a pond and stick the landing for their birdie. Close behind in second was Maple Hill with Toboggan rounding out the podium.
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 six on the sixth day, today (the seventh day), we will pick the seventh 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: The downhill Par 3 is the shortest hole on the course at 210 ft. Players deal with a very fast green with the OB fountain pond surrounding the basket. Far from the easiest hole on the course, when people think about Fountain Hills, this is one of the baskets they envision. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Vista del Camino: Hole Seven at Vista is the second Par 4 players handle on the course. OB lines the 645 ft hole on both sides of the fairway. There are also two mandos on the left side of the fairway that take away the large right-handed hyzer for both the drive and upshot. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.
Brazos Park East: Hole Seven at the bEast is a 462 ft Par 4. The hole plays out of the woods into an open fairway. The mando right off the tee takes away the early outside drive. Once players make it out into the open, they then must throw across a ravine to the basket. 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 Seven features separate tee pads for FPO and MPO. The FPO hole is a 545 ft Par 4, and for MPO, it is 615 ft Par 4. Players throw uphill towards a corralled green. The green is surrounding by trees on two sides protecting the basket from a hyzered upshot. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.
Gleneagles: Hole Seven in San Francisco is a 579 ft Par 4. The basket is directly in front of the tee box. However, there are several trees between the teepad and the basket. Players have a mando on the first tree off the tee box to keep drives out of the adjoining fairway. Many players throw either a roller or anhyzer off the tee. Players then must judge their upshot on where they can place it and not go OB as an OB rope runs along the right side of the entire fairway. Please note this hole was lengthened last year, so the flyover does not match the current hole logistics. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself.
**T3rd Place** Blue Lake Park: The 825 ft, Hole Seven, plays as a Par 4 for MPO and Par 5 for FPO. The last of the park-style holes on the course, the basket was moved forward from its 2014 Worlds position. That being said, it’s still a tricky fairway to navigate with tress throughout. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.
Kensington Toboggan: At 508 ft, Hole Seven plays out of the woods as a Par 4 for the MPO. It is a 345 ft Par 3 for the FPO without any of the woods involved. MPO players are looking to make it through the woods out to the fairway while FPO players are trying to make the green on the drive. It does play as one of the easier holes on the course for the MPO division. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.
**2nd Place** Idlewild: Hole Seven at Idlewild plays across an OB creek and then uphill through the woods. Players who go big off the tee end up playing Plinko through the trees for a look at eagle. The more traditional play is to throw a midrange or putter to a landing zone on the uphill slope across the creek. Players then navigate the wooded fairway up to the green. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.
Eureka Lake: The second-shortest hole on the course, this 275 ft Par 3 plays through a wooded fairway with an OB creek on the left and road on the right. Players are throwing straight at the basket, hoping to avoid any trees or skip too far past and take an easy birdie. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.
Sunset Hills: Hole Seven at Sunset Hills is a new hole added for the PDGA World Championships. It is a Par 4, 575 ft. The tee pad is elevated above the fairway. Players throw through a wood-lined fairway about halfway through the hole that helps keep things interesting. You can see what the FPO division has been playing from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.
Northwood: A new hole at the Northwood course, Hole Seven, plays across the park portion of the course to a slightly elevated basket. At 400 ft, this Par 3 is not for the faint of heart. Players go for an air shot or the roller to try and 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 370 ft for MPO and 275 ft for FPO, Hole Seven is another completely wooded hole. Players throw down a dirt path that shapes the fairway. The FPO basket tails off to the left of the fairway while the MPO basket is a little more straightforward. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.
Brewster Ridge: Hole Seven at Brewster Ridge is 665 ft for MPO and 605 ft for FPO, playing as a Par 4. Players have two fairways to choose from, the first curves uphill to the left almost immediately while the second goes a little further straight before curving up to the basket. Players who miss their mark end up in between the two fairways and contend with a bank of trees while throwing uphill towards the basket. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.
**Winner** Fox Run Meadows: Hole Seven at Fox Run is a monster 1085 ft Par 5 for FPO and 1225 ft Par 5 for MPO. Players throw their first drive across an OB creek and then throw multiple other drives down an open fairway to the basket. They do have to contend with an OB wall on the right and rope on the left, but the fairway is wide enough that only errant shots end up going OB. This hole was made famous when Calvin Heimburg carded an eagle three during the 2018 PDGA World Championships. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.
**T3rd Place ** Hornets Nest: Hole Seven at Hornet’s Nest is a 641 ft Par 4 for the MPO division and 588 ft for FPO. Players have an open drive off the tee that moves towards a lower ceiling as they move up the fairway. There is an OB road along the left side of the fairway that is dotted by trees, which hinder shots going over the road from coming back in bounds. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
