3 of the best holes in Gainesville
Pros: Buckle up, y'all. Without a doubt, this is the best disc golf course in town. Heck, it might be the best attraction in town. Gainesville, TX - population: ~10,000. It is as close to being Southern Oklahoma with still being in the best state in the country; they love their disc golf, and it shows - they have a sign welcoming you to their lovely Moffett Park, which is right off I-35, and they advertise their disc golf course on their park sign. That's right, a town paid money to get a disc golf sign for a course that is three holes long. Honestly, that's okay; the park is small and probably couldn't hold any more holes.
It's not like the baskets are just three baskets sitting randomly in a park with no rhyme or reason for them being there. They are nice Discatcher baskets. There are yellow tee posts with hole number and distances listed on them. They have what you need to create, without a doubt, the best 3 hole disc golf course I have ever played.
The holes are not even terrible. There are big oak pine trees in the park that do create obstacles. You need to throw a left to right shot on hole 2 to get a chance at a 2 because of the trees guarding right off the tee.
Cons: Like literally every other reviewer said: the course is only three holes. Though like I mentioned before, I am not sure if the park space is suitable for any more than that. There is a larger park across the street that holds the zoo and other amenities that could have created a more expansive course, but from what it seems, disc golf is the only reason to go to this park.
Again, the three holes are solid to play, but I could never warrant rating a three hole course more than what it is.
Other Thoughts: With the more recent addition of a nine hole course in Lindsay, TX, which is about 4 miles to the west, there is more of a reason to bag this course along with that one. Lindsay Park is a great course, and Moffett is something you can bag in no time at all.
Don't expect anything too crazy or awesome. It is, in the end, a three hole course.

Pros: How do rate a course and do a review when there are only 3 holes.
Well, the 3 holes are just your basic holes, nothing to write home about. They is a 4x4 yellow post marking the 3 holes. Baskets do have the numbers on them so it was super easy to follow and only took me 5 min to play.
The only reason to play here is to work on your short game, you can play the 3 holes over and over and make up some of your own holes,
