DGPT Dream 18 Course: What is the best Hole 18 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 17 Winner

In yet another close vote, The bEast at Brazos Hole 17 beat out Idlewild’s Hole 17 by just five votes. In a distant third was Eureka Lake with only 4% of the vote. 89% of the voting was between the top two Hole 17’s yesterday.

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 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 to the last day of voting!

Hole Eighteen

Fountain Hills: At 400 ft, Hole Eighteen at Fountain Hills plays alongside the fountain pond to the left of the fairway. A walking path on the right of the fairway keeps the in-bounds area defined. With a sloping green down to the water, players are throwing to land softly and not roll out of bounds. With an elevated basket, there are plenty of opportunities for players to go big for the lead or lose strokes on the final hole of the course. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Vista del Camino: Hole Eighteen at Vista is 381 ft Par 3. Players are throwing across the creek that runs through the middle of the course. Playing through the ZUCA truss, players who want the birdie must throw through a triple-mando on the green. The triple-mando takes away the wide, over-the-crowd shot and the left-hand backhand over the water shot. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Brazos Park East: Hole Eighteen at the bEast is a 468 ft Par 3. The hole plays across a pond to a basket set alongside the water. This hole was initially further back on the landing zone and a Par 4. After several eagles during last year’s tournament, the hole was adjusted to be a tricky Par 3. Players going for par will wait to throw across the water until their upshot, players going for broke will throw across on their drive. 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 Eighteen is an 818 ft Par 4 for MPO and Par 5 for FPO. The hole plays down into the valley and then alongside an OB fence to the finishing green. Players navigate a tricky drive off the tee into one of two defined fairways up to the basket. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.

Gleneagles: Hole Eighteen at San Francisco is a 567 ft Par 4 for FPO and 719 ft for MPO. The hole plays uphill to a basket on a finishing green surrounded by OB sand traps. The MPO tee box is set back in the woods, adding some distance to this finishing hole. The FPO tee box is placed at the entrance to the woods and plays across the fairway for a slightly easier approach. If players avoid the OB briar patch on the right and OB fairway to the left, they are then presented with another round of OB sand traps leading up to the basket. While it doesn’t look it on paper, this can be one of the more technical holes on the course for players. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself. 

Blue Lake Park: The 600 ft Par 4 Eighteenth Hole plays through the triple-mando ZUCA truss into a left curving green. Players are looking to make the corner on their drive, so they can throw safely to the OB surrounded green for a birdie. Rollers or throwers with elite distance can give themselves a look for eagle with a clean drive. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.

Kensington Toboggan: At 315 ft, Hole Eighteen is an uphill Toboggan run hole to finish the course. Players are throwing out of the woods, up the run to a flat finishing green. Due to the elevation of the green, players struggle to make it to C2 for a look at birdie. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.

Idlewild: Hole Eighteen at Idlewild is a 650 ft Par 4. The hardest MPO hole on the course and second hardest for FPO, this is a classic finishing hole for a Pro Tour event. Players are throwing down a wooded fairway and consider it lucky if their second shot makes it out of the woods for a look at par. Once out of the woods, players have another 150 ft to the basket and must make it around two guardian trees to have a putt. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open.

Eureka Lake: This 711 ft Par 4 plays close to Eureka Lake on the left with an OB road on the right. Players can throw over land, or a sidearm out over the water for two different paths to attack the green. There is also a widely popular roller shot for the drive off the tee. The upshot requires some touch to keep from skipping or rolling OB into the lake. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.

Sunset Hills: Hole Eighteen at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing across a driving range to a tree-protected basket. The 383 ft Par 3 hole sees players throwing from an elevated tee across the valley to a sloped green. The hole finishes right in front of the clubhouse to represent a real finishing hole for disc golf. Check out Paige Pierce sealing her win at last year’s Ledgestone on this hole. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Northwood: Hole Eighteen at Northwood is an existing hole at the course. At 660 ft, this Par 4 plays from an elevated tee down to a cedar-lined green. Once on the fairway, players curve shots to the right and then uphill to a basket set on the slope. A very picturesque finishing hole, see how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Maple Hill: At 605 ft Par 4 for FPO and 680 ft Par 4 for MPO, the hole plays out of the woods and through a small field of Christmas trees to finish. The MPO and FPO players are throwing to the same landing zone from their respective tee pads. If players get enough distance off the tee, they have an opportunity to pitch for the green to grab a birdie. If they do not make the green and go OB, they proceed to a drop zone that is just inside C2. It has been eagled a few times, including by none other than Paul McBeth and Paige Pierce (not on film). Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.

Brewster Ridge: Hole Eighteen at Brewster Ridge is 345 ft playing along a dirt road and to the left to the basket. Quite possibly the easiest finishing hole on Tour, players are hoping for one last birdie to finish out their round. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.

Fox Run Meadows: Hole Eighteen at Fox Run is a 655 ft FPO, 775 ft MPO downhill Par 4. The fairway plays around to the right shaped by OB on both sides. Players are bombing their drive off the tee, hoping to finish on the left side of the fairway to avoid a tree on the right. Players are then throwing an upshot just short of the basket for a birdie look, going high risks rolling out to C2, and possibly OB. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.

Hornets Nest: Hole Eighteen at Hornet’s Nest is a 400 ft FPO, 486 ft MPO Par 3. The hole plays through a field and slightly right. Players who try to go for a birdie do risk running past the basket OB. It produced some significant point swings at the Tour Championship last year and while only a Par 3 is still very demanding. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
