An acre is as wide as an American football field, but only 90 yards long (not 100 yards zone-to-zone). So, at 1 acre per ball golf hole, it's not gonna happen. Even if the fairway was half as wide you'd still top out at 180 yards max per hole.
1 acre per disc golf hole is about right, but always err on the larger side. It really depends on natural geography and boundaries, tree lines and ridges that let you put fairways closer together.
And Timko is right: don't 'force' 18 holes into a nice 9 hole course. Players will appreciate a well thought out 9 holer with room to breathe more than 18 mediocre cramped holes.
