Pros: The city of Gatesville expanded the park into another parks. adding a additional 9 holes.
this includes extra bathrooms and water fountains. shade and benches to sit. trash cans.
theses newer holes add a additional challenges to the course.
Cons: Better signage to direct you to hole 6, 9 and 12
quit a ways walk from hole 11 to 12
and 8 to hole 9
Lets talk about the Water holes.
#5 rather simple short shot across the water , if you short line your disc. it's getting wet(you will too if it lands in the middle and you go after it).
#8 Plays next to a river about 10-15 feet away from the basket(a steep cliff off to the left side) a lefty shot or a long fade from a righty will result in you losing your disc in the river.
#10 also plays next to a river to your left be careful right hand players a long fade will go into the river. also if you over drive the hole you'll end up in the river keep this in mind.
#15 plays next to shallow creek no real troubles here ,unless it's over grown.
#18 has a very small creek fed by the city pool very shallow and narrow shouldn't be any troubles, unless you loose sight of your disc.
Other Thoughts: Gatesville steps up there game in the expansion of Raby Park . with the new hole offered these will even challenged the more "pro" players
over all I would say this is a must play for you'll in central texas.
the course plays in a circle and starting at hole #1 you'll end up at hole #18

Pros: This course had good signage and even provided a bathroom. This course was easy to navigate. The course made use of all of the elevation that was available. Especially hole 8 which you throw over a parking lot up toward the hill( which is a bad idea for a hole, throwing over the parking lot). I played this course in the rain and I was impressed with the drainage throughout the course. There was no standing water anywhere. I also appreciated the time they spend adding greenery and flowers throughout the course.
Cons: A few of the holes were too close to a tree. For example, hole 7 ( or the one by the playground) The tee pad was literally inches from a tree which is scary when releasing your disc that you might smack your hand. Also you are throwing right by a playground which is dangerous. Hole 5 was way to short at just over 100 feet. Also, you throw right over a water park on hole 3 which is another added danger to children.

Pros: Nice layout. Very little walking from baskets to tees. Can play it twice, for 18 holes, in less than a hour. Great for a righty with a strong hyzer.
Cons: Really more of a pitch and putt.
Other Thoughts: Actually a pretty easy course. Son and I matched our best ever scores for 18 holes on the second time we played. Still fun for a change.

Pros: The course has a great mix of terrain. The park is clean and quite. Hills , trees and water make for a challenge.
Cons: Hole #7 goes beside a small child play ground. Danger of wacking a kid! Hole #4 sometimes has cars parked by the restroom in the way.
