The Fort Myers Country Club has gotten a face-lift, which took six months, but the revamped 18-hole golf course looks magnificent. Opened in 1917 and steeped in a rich history, Fort Myers Country Club is ensconced in palmetto and pine trees. Top golf architect Donald Ross designed its recent renovation.
Residents and business owners in Gardner’s Park, a historic 1920s neighborhood, have asked city leaders to restore the area into a charming garden arts district with living space above small shops and art studios, and small businesses to serve as a hub of commerce. It would restore one of the oldest areas of Fort Myers.
