The DGPT Dream 18 Fan Vote is presented by ZÜCA. ZÜCA has stepped up and provided a new Trekker Cart as part of a contest attached to the Dream 18. Predict which holes will win the fan vote on the Back Nine and you will win. 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 5 Winner

The winner from Friday’s Hole 5 vote came from Gleneagles and the San Francisco Open. The 1,033 ft, Par 4 for MPO/Par 5 FPO, is a downhill monster. In second was Idlewild, and Maple Hill and Fox Run Meadows 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 five on the fifth day, today (the sixth day), we will pick the sixth 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 Six

Fountain Hills: The uphill Par 3 features some wild shots due to the placement of the tee relative to the basket. Players must navigate a massive tree in the middle of the fairway while also throwing directly uphill. At 233 ft, it’s the second shortest hole on the course. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Vista del Camino: Hole Six at Vista is the first Par 4 players encounter on the course. OB lines the 783 ft hole on both sides of the fairway. Depending on the tools in their bag, players will either attack the hole through the air or with a roller. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Brazos Park East: Hole Six at the bEast is an opportunity for players to have an ace, albeit with a little more tricky fairway. The 267 ft, Par 3, plays down a tree-lined fairway that most players will either throw a putter or a midrange down. Check out the flyover from Jomez’s coverage of the 2020 Waco Annual Charity Open.

**Winner** Disc Side of Heaven: At 315 ft, Disc Side of Heaven’s Hole Six is not the shortest hole on this monster course. Players must make the putting green to avoid an OB penalty on this over-the-water island hole. Locals would have thought this would be the first hole aced by a touring pro, but instead, that distinction goes to Hole 15. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.

Gleneagles: Hole 6 in San Francisco is a challenging 644 ft Par 4. Players can throw down a straight-wood-lined fairway or hyzer out to a secondary fairway to the right. There are risks and rewards for both. Going down the middle can get players to a point where they have an opportunity at birdie. Going out wide, players are usually settling for par. However, there is natural OB on the straight fairway and roped OB out to the right. Either way, players then must navigate OB bunkers both in front and behind the basket to still achieve a birdie or par. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself.  

Blue Lake Park: The 270 ft, Par 3, plays uphill to an elevated basket. If players can keep their discs in the air to the green, they will have a great opportunity at birdie. The hole is unique in that it plays out of the tall grass back towards the more park-style old-growth trees. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.

**3rd Place** Kensington Toboggan: At 632 ft, Hole Six plays across the rolling hills of the Metropark. Players have a landing zone atop the first hill that they are hoping to make if they want a look at birdie. From the top of the first hill, they can then have a clean look at the green to try and make their upshot inside the circle and capitalize. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open

Idlewild: Hole Six at Idlewild is one of the more open holes on the course. Players play out of the woods uphill and across a walking path to the basket. There are a few trees in the fairway and a bank of trees guarding the left side of the basket. Outside of those obstacles, players are just contending with the slope to get their par and move-on. 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-longest hole on the course, this 897 ft Par 4 plays down an OB lined fairway that finishes to the right. Players are looking to make two 400 ft drives to try and have a look at a birdie putt. In 2019 it was the hardest hole on the course. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will show you why. 

Sunset Hills: Hole Six at Sunset Hills is one of the more challenging holes on the course. At 712 ft, it’s a Par 5 due to its complexity. Players throw across a ball golf fairway from an elevated tee box. Traditionally it takes two throws to get across to the fairway and to a landing zone for players to make their next big throw across an OB pond. With the hole playing as a Par 5, it can be an easy birdie. Last year Paige Pierce even eagled the hole during the Ledgestone Insurance Open. You can see what the FPO division has been playing from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Northwood: One of the original holes at the Northwood course, Hole Six, plays in the open section of the park with very few trees. At 370 ft, this is a must-get birdie. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship. 

**2nd Place** Maple Hill: At 375 ft, Hole Six is considered one of the more difficult holes at Maple Hill by some. By others, it’s a walk in the park. Players are throwing downhill with an OB rock wall on the right and the woods compacting the fairway from the left. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole. 

Brewster Ridge: At 365 ft, this downhill shot plays more like 300-325ft. The fairway curves left, creating a blind shot from the tee due to the slope and trees on the left side of the fairway. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship. 

Fox Run Meadows: Hole Six at Fox Run plays uphill and to the right. At 290 ft, this hole is a must-get birdie on the otherwise challenging course. With a tree line coming in from the right side of the fairway, it creates a blind shot that adds to the hole’s mystique. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez. 

Hornets Nest: Hole Six at Hornet’s Nest is a 453 ft Par 3 for the MPO division and 321 ft for FPO. Players have a low-ceiling drive off the tee that opens up to a nicely manicured fairway leading to the two different pin placements. For the FPO division, the basket is placed to the left of the fairway and elevated while the MPO placement is straight the entire way.  See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
