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 13 Winner

With 90% of the vote between two holes, it was a race to the finish but finally, Idlewild did not come in second and the infamous “KY” hole won out. In second place was Eureka Lake’s monster Par 5 and rounding out the podium was a tie between Brewster Ridge and Northwood each only holding 3% of the vote.

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!

Hole Fourteen

Fountain Hills: At 375 ft, Hole Fourteen at Fountain Hills plays downhill to a protected basket. A relatively straight forward hole outside of the one tree right beside the basket, most players who make it inside the circle take the birdie and move on. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Vista del Camino: Hole Fourteen at Vista is a 655 ft Par 4. Players are throwing through a few different mandos to keep players out of the OB walkway and spectators safe. With four mandos, the hole demands that players keep their drives straight towards the basket. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Brazos Park East: Hole Fourteen at the bEast is a 303 ft Par 3. The hole plays through the ZUCA Truss triple mando that is only about 50 ft off the tee pad. Players can throw straight at the basket or try to hyzer out over an OB road and back towards the green. It has been aced a few times during the event but never on film, though it was made famous this year when Brodie Smith threw his upshot in from downtownCheck 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 Fourteen is a 520 ft Par 3 for MPO and Par 4 for FPO. Players are throwing downhill to a basket perched inside of a log. Due to the slope of the green, players have the option to throw over the OB rough for a look at birdie. If players choose to lay up short of the OB, they are playing for par. Garrett Gurthie absolutely parked this hole in 2018See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.

Gleneagles: Hole Fourteen at San Francisco is a 263 ft Par 3. Players are throwing through a double mando to start the hole. This hole is a straight putter or midrange shot going slightly uphill through two rows of old-growth trees. The only real danger here is hitting a tree early or kicking off a tree OB. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself. 

Blue Lake Park: The 875 ft MPO Par 4 and FPO Par 5 Hole Fourteen, plays through a tunnel tee area into an open fairway. Players must navigate two OB rough islands en route to the green. A tree protects the putting area to the left of the basket and then a bank of trees directly behind the green. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.

Kensington Toboggan: At 375 ft, Hole Fourteen plays down one of the shorter toboggan hills. The Par 3 has a blind pin position tucked into the woods on the left of the fairway. If players can navigate the guardian trees, they are looking at an easy birdie.  Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.

**2nd Place** Idlewild: Hole Fourteen at Idlewild is a 556 ft Par 4. Cory Ellis eagled this hole in 2018 and Bart Kowalewski in 2017. The hole averages just over par but is getable if players can make it down the wooded fairway on their first shot. Players then have a tricky upshot to an island green or will need to lay up to the edge of the creek for a chance at a throw-in or easy par. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.

Eureka Lake: This 805 ft Par 4 plays along Eureka Lake to the right of the fairway. Players are throwing to a landing zone at the curve in the fairway. Players who make the landing zone are throwing a right-handed hyzer over the water for a look at birdie. If the upshot goes over the basket, it lands OB, or if it comes, in short, it may not make it back on land. This hole has seen a few different throw-ins, most notably from Matt Dollar in 2018.  The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.

Sunset Hills: Hole Fourteen at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing through a cut fairway to a protected green. The 329 ft hole does have OB on both sides, but it rarely comes into play. Players do contend with a triangle of trees surrounding the green that can inhibit the birdie opportunity. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Northwood: Hole Fourteen at Northwood is one of the brand new holes built for 2019 PDGA Worlds. At 330 ft, this Par 3 plays down a wooded fairway to a built-up island-style green. Players who make it through the trees and stick on the green are looking at a simple birdie. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

**Winner** Maple Hill: At 420 ft for MPO, this Par 3 plays downhill to a basket perched on the water’s edge. The hole is a little more straightforward for the FPO division at 285 ft. The men are all gunning for the basket with a right-hand backhand throw. The FPO division has an opportunity to throw more straight at the basket and have an effortless look at birdie. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.

Brewster Ridge: Hole Fourteen at Brewster Ridge is the shortest hole on the course at 260 ft. Players are throwing uphill and to the left. If they can navigate the wooded fairway, they will try to settle early to not skip long down a hill. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.

Fox Run Meadows: Hole Fourteen at Fox Run is a 380 ft Par 3 for MPO and 305 ft for FPO. The fairway plays open with OB rough on the right and woods on the left. Players want to stick their drive into a wooded green on the left of the fairway for a birdie look. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.

Hornets Nest: Hole Fourteen at Hornet’s Nest is 419 ft for MPO and 360 ft for FPO. The hole plays to the left through the woods. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
