What Are The Hardest Holes In Professional Disc Golf?


What are the hardest holes in professional disc golf, from 2016 til 2022 Helsinki event

This article stemmed from a question Daniel Kauffman wanted to answer solely for himself: What are the hardest holes in professional disc golf?

Daniel Kauffman, Herald-Mail Media sports reporter, disc golf fan since 2015:

There is no definitive answer for this question. But thanks to UDiscLive.com — which has charted hundreds (if not thousands) of pro events since 2016 — there’s plenty of data.

I went through all of those tournaments — specifically looking at the “course stats” tab for each round — and charted all of the holes that averaged at least +0.75 shots above par.

This list includes pro events since 2016 through the 2022 Helsinki event and MPO rounds only. Without further ado!

List of the Hardest Holes in Professional Disc Golf:
