DGPT Dream 18 Course: What is the best Hole 13 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 12 Winner

With nearly 50% of the vote, Northwood Hole 12 is the winner. Idlewild featured nearly 30% of the vote to bring home second place and rounding out the top three was Eureka Lake.

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 Thirteen

Fountain Hills: At 268 ft, Hole Thirteen at Fountain Hills plays uphill to an elevated basket. Players contend with a guardian tree off the tee. The pyramid basket is perched on a slight hill making the landing tricky for players who do not nail the approach. Check out how the Pros attack the hole thanks to Jomez’s flyover of the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Vista del Camino: Hole Thirteen at Vista is a 405 ft Par 3. Players are throwing along the water on the right to another pyramid basket. There is a mando off the green that makes players choose to either go for it or lay up short to avoid a penalty stroke. Give it a look from the Jomez flyover at the 2020 Memorial Championship.

Brazos Park East: Hole Thirteen at the bEast is a 555 ft Par 4. The hole features one mando on the right side of the fairway to keep players from going out over the road. Players throw down a fairway that slopes to the left before finishing on a level green. With a clean drive off the tee, players have a hope at eagle. 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 Thirteen is a 353 ft Par 3 for MPO and 255 ft Par 3 for FPO. Players are throwing uphill to the basket. If players get their drives in the air, they can hope to stall out right inside the circle for a birdie. If their drive does not land in the circle, they risk rolling downhill, right of the basket into the woods. See how the discs fly thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2018 Jonesboro Open.

Gleneagles: Hole Thirteen at San Francisco is a 347 ft Par 3 for MPO and 327 ft Par 3 for FPO. The MPO tee pad is level to the basket playing straight down the fairway. Woods hug the left side of the fairway, and one large guardian tree protects the green. The FPO tee pad plays downhill across an open fairway. Check out Jomez’s 2018 flyover from the San Francisco Open to see it for yourself. 

Blue Lake Park: The 440 ft FPO, 655 ft MPO Hole Thirteen, plays down an open fairway that pinches tight close to the green. The second shot is very demanding as players have a large embankment to the left of the basket and OB close on the right side of the green. See for yourself in the 2019 Portland Open flyover from Jomez.

Kensington Toboggan: At 700 ft for MPO and 513 ft for FPO, Hole Thirteen plays back up one of the shorter toboggan hills. The Par 4 sees an extended fairway before players attempt the uphill throw. The drive needs to be placed where players have an opportunity to throw to the top of the hill without hitting into the fairway too early. Once on top of the hill, the green fades to the left alongside the woods.  Watch the flyover from Jomez’s first-round coverage of the 2018 Great Lakes Open.

**Winner** Idlewild: Hole Thirteen at Idlewild is a 472 ft Par 4. The famous “KY” hole, in previous years, players have played through a “Y” shaped tree in the middle of the fairway. Once down the hill players contend with an OB creek that runs in front of the green. If players can make the corner and avoid the OB, they have a look at eagle. Figure out how you might attack it while watching Jomez’s flyover from the first round of the 2018 Idlewild Open. 

**2nd Place** Eureka Lake: This 1080 ft Par 5 plays across Eureka Lake to the first landing zone. Players then have the option to throw overland to a second landing zone or throw out over the lake for a higher risk-reward upshot. From the second landing zone, players are looking to make the green for a look at the birdie four. The flyover from the 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open will help provide perspective.

Sunset Hills: Hole Thirteen at Sunset Hills is an original hole to the course. Players are throwing uphill to an island green. The 280 ft hole is a blind shot from the tee with a guardian tree on the left that players must throw around to have a shot at the green. You can see what the FPO division has been dealing with from Central Coast’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

**T3rd Place** Northwood: Hole Thirteen at Northwood is one of the brand new holes built for 2019 PDGA Worlds. At 650 ft, this Par 4 plays down a wooded fairway. Players hoping to make the green must navigate a series of trees guarding an easy upshot. See how the Pros played it thanks to Jomez’s coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championship.

Maple Hill: At 405 ft, this Par 3 plays downhill to a wooded green. Players who make the shot to the basket do have to avoid going past the basket. Players who come up short stand the chance of landing in a ravine that moves in front of the basket. Paul McBeth had a throw-in on this hole in 2018, and Catrina Allen made a solid putt from the edge of C2 in 2017. Watch the flyover from Jomez’s 2018 MVP Open coverage to see how the pros play the hole.

**T3rd Place** Brewster Ridge: Hole Thirteen at Brewster Ridge is 555 ft Par 4. Players are throwing down the same gravel road as hole twelve. The green is tucked to the right of the path into the woods. See how the hole unfolds on the Jomez flyover from the 2019 Green Mountain Championship.

Fox Run Meadows: Hole Thirteen at Fox Run is a 350 ft Par 3. The fairway plays down a hill and into the woods on the left. Players are throwing along an OB rope line on the right and looking to make a sharp cut into the woods to make the green. You can see it for yourself on the 2019 Green Mountain Championship coverage from Jomez.

Hornets Nest: Hole Thirteen at Hornet’s Nest is an 819 ft Par 4 for MPO and 723 Par 5 for FPO. The hole plays down an open fairway before cutting hard right into the woods. Once in the woods, players have another 150 ft before getting to an elevated basket. See how the players played the hole at last year’s Tour Championship, thanks to Jomez.
