One Year Preview Golf Memberships
Preview Gateway Golf & Country Club
What do you do if you are new to the area and want to join a Club where you don’t yet know anyone? Many are hesitant to pay an upfront initiation fee without being sure that the Club is a good fit for them. Introducing our Preview Golf membership. Available as Family Golf, Single Golf or Executive Golf, Preview Members will have the opportunity to experience first-hand everything we have to offer at Gateway Golf & Country Club by being able to “Preview” the Club for an entire 12 months without being required to pay an upfront initiation fee. During this trial period, your responsibility will be the dues, capital fees and charges applicable to the category of membership selected, as well as the full food & beverage requirement.
At the end of 12 months, Preview Members may choose to leave the Club without obligation. However, it is our belief that during your trial you will experience the ease of getting tee times at a club with fewer than 300 members, be included in golf games & social groups and enjoy the friendly nature of the Gateway Members… therefore making your decision to become permanent Equity Members an easy one.
Preferred Initiation Fee Pricing For Equity Membership Upgrades
While enjoying the Club during the preview period, you will be given an opportunity to bypass the full 12 months of the Preview Program and take advantage of a greatly reduced Initiation Fee if you decide to purchase an Equity membership within 60 days of beginning the Preview Membership. At the end of the 12 months, you also have an opportunity to continue by becoming Equity Members and paying the Full Initiation Fee.
- All Initiation Fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable

Golf Course at Gateway Golf & Country Club
Our 18-hole, meticulously maintained, Tom Fazio masterpiece at the Gateway Golf & Country Club facility in Fort Myers, Florida which plays 7,047 yards from the longest tees with a par of 72 awaits your arrival. The course rating is 74.4 and carries a slope rating of 137.
The golf course opened for play in 1989 and was immediately added to Golf Digest’s list of Top 100 Courses. The recognition Gateway garnered from Golf Digest’s Top 100 list earned the course the privilege of hosting the 1990 and ’91 Ben Hogan Tour’s Gateway Open. The Club has also hosted numerous USGA qualifiers and PGA chapter and section events, including the 2008 Callaway Golf State Pro-Assistant event, which was previously hosted by the well-known TPC @ Sawgrass.
Gateway Golf & Country Club features six sets of tees, including senior tees for both gentlemen and ladies. Like many Florida courses, there is water on most holes; if that’s not enough you’ll also find nearly 100 sand traps. But fear not, you will also find generous fairways, dramatic stands of native cypress trees, cape cod-style bunkering, and putting surfaces that are often described as some of the finest (and quickest) Bermuda grass greens in the state. This all adds up to a well-rounded combination of playability, challenge, coupled with Fazio’s signature aesthetic appeal. Tom Fazio himself rates our tenth hole as one of the top four greatest golf holes he has ever designed.
Finally, in case you want to size up your competition, the course record at Gateway was set by PGA Tour Player Stephen Ames. His 64 was shot during the 1991 Ben Hogan Tournament.
OK, as by now you know the course record, you probably just need to know one more thing: “Where’s the first hole? Well then, let’s tee it up!
