Gateway

If you love golf and are looking to have your very own home in a premier Southwest Florida golf community, Gateway could be the perfect choice for you.

Opened in 1989, this 3,000-acre master-planned community features a par-72 18-hole golf course designed by Tom Fazio. Ideally located just off I-75 in the highly desirable city of Fort Myers, Gateway offers more than just easy access to one of Florida’s top golf clubs.

All around the community are lakes, green open spaces, and landscaped streets that give it a tranquil and idyllic vibe. The neighborhood is home to schools, parks, trails, community pools, sports fields, and other recreational facilities. It features an 800-acre business park where some of the top companies in the world have offices.

Gateway’s ideal location puts it close to Southwest Florida’s gorgeous beaches and nature preserves, as well as to numerous shopping and recreation centers, health facilities, and cultural attractions.

Gateway has a population of around 8,400. It is served by a Community Development District that oversees and maintains most of its infrastructure and services, including the water supply, wastewater control, and the community’s common grounds and recreational facilities.
