Feed the Gators is a military park style course near a 24 hour access gate to Warner Robbins AFB. The course features 9 holes of "fairway driver and putt" park style dg that wraps clockwise around an open rec area. The course has many large oaks that encourages shot shaping throughout. Feed the Gators doesn't actually have any gators, however there is a water retaining ditch 3/4 of the way through the course to account for. The fairways are mostly open, well maintained, and landscaped regularly.
Playing the course can be a little unnerving at times due to the close proximity to roads, playgrounds, rest areas, and the guard shack. Errant throws could easily hit a random pedestrian, car, or even an armed military security forces guard if you're truly unlucky. Clearly, this course was not designed with pedestrians in mind, as a majority of the course wraps around or near the main pavilion. That being said, the park was completely empty when I came to play.
All in all, the course was better than I expected. It featured a fun variety of medium, occasionally long, distances and fairway orientations. It's probably the best 9 hole military style course I've played as of yet. Safety, natural tees, and flatness were the biggest course rating limitations.

Fun nine hole course.
Pros: Well marked tee posts.
Good course for beginner to intermediate players.
Holes range from short easier straight shots to far curving fairways with tree obstacles.
Balanced between left and right curve shots for different handed players.
Can be played in under 30 minutes with two or less players.
Restrooms and water fountains available.
Cons: Base access required.
Only nine holes.
Grass/Dirt tee pads.
The small amount of "hazards" that are there are ditches and bushes covered in thorns.
No trash cans along the course.
Hole one is far from the parking lot so once the course finishes at the end of hole nine you have to back track.(not that big of a deal but hole nine should be hole one in my opinion).
Other Thoughts: It is a small fun course to play if you have access to the base and want to throw a quick nine after work or if you're local and don't want to go to Perry or Macon.
