The # 1 Public Golf Course in St. Louis and the Only One With Bentgrass Fairways!

Enjoy golf as it was meant to be played at this stunning, links-style course in the perfect location for golfers who work in, or travel to the downtown St. Louis and Metro-East areas.
Gateway National offers St. Louis golfers the rare opportunity to return to the rich traditions of the game. Rolling links, separated by gentle mounds, meander through lush, green pasturelands.
Tall grasses, lakes, wood-tie bunkers, and occasional giant cottonwoods complete the landscape. In view of the magnificent Gateway Arch, you will cross occasional stone bridges, glide on raised boardwalks through quiet wetlands, and enjoy play on the only public St. Louis golf course with bentgrass fairways within hundreds of miles. 
Our convenient location makes us a natural choice for corporate outings and charity events. After your round, you’ll want to linger in our clubhouse and enjoy our open-faced kitchen that serves a seasonal lunch menu with spectacular views across the links. We offer dine-in and carryout 618-482-4653!

What People Are Saying About Us


Believe the hype when it comes to this course. It was just an excellent golfing experience. The course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was packed the day I played, but I never felt rushed and only had to wait on the group ahead of us one time. Overall, an excellent golfing experience. This is the best golf course in St. Louis!”
