Enjoyable but wet
The course was in very good condition considering that they had received 12 inches of rain during the week. It was cart paths only due to the wet conditions. One hole was closed due to flooding from the rain and a dam bursting upstream. The greens were in excellent condition. The club staff members were very courteous and helpful.
If you're travelling, get off I-95 and play Gates Four
I set a up a tee time with Scooter Buhrman, PGA Head Pro at Gates Four, prior to a golf trip. He's super personable and wanted to make sure our group was satisfied. He mentioned at the outset that the greens had suffered mightily from the July heat - he was absolutely correct; they were under serious duress but recovering - otherwise, this course would have received a 5. Plenty of variety on this course, sand in bunkers easy to play, lots of character. I believe it may be hole #12, a par 4, where there is a small pond with a creek running from it. I don't recall any signage on the hole at the tee but driver here is not an option if I recall the hole number correctly.
If you plan to play in August, early September, ask the pro shop staff if the greens are better - you'll enjoy GF.
Great Greens, Good Layout
I did Groupme and it was $25. Well worth 25. The fairways had plenty of crab grass but the greens are in good shape with plenty of movement in them. Course was in ok condition. The course layout is pretty good, plenty of interesting holes. Like most Fauetteville area courses you better hit the ball off the tee dead on. If you do, the course is there for the taking. There was a couple of slow groups of old men betting and slowing the pace. I guess groups of 5 and 6 are allowed there. The practice facility is A rating.
Staff very friendly, course well maintained, fun.
Always a treat to play Gates four, course is always in good shape great greens. Staff is always helpful and friendly.
