The 18-hole, Tom Fazio masterpiece at the Gateway Golf & Country Club facility in Fort Myers, Florida plays 7,047 yards from the longest tees with a par of 72. 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. Tom Fazio himself rates our tenth hole as one of the top four greatest golf holes he has ever designed. Moreover, the course at Gateway is extremely well maintained; how well you score will depend on how you handle the fast greens and wind of this beautiful Tom Fazio design. Like many Florida courses, there is water on most holes; but as if that's not enough, you'll also find more than 100 bunkers. The front nine has a links-style feel to it, while the back nine winds clockwise through wooded areas. Concluding the day, Number 18 is considered by many to be one of the finest finishing holes in the country.
