HideOut opened January 14, 2000.  Most private courses in Naples are a part of residential developments.  The owners of HideOut Golf Club desired to have a private club without the residential component.  From the beginning, we focused strictly on providing the most challenging and pleasurable experience for the serious golfer.  The course is designed for a handicap range from scratch to 15. 

The land offered for the HideOut Golf Club is magnificently rich in natural resources in the right amounts.  There are broad, open fields totally devoid of vegetation; common woodland areas consisting mostly of pines; and areas tremendously fertile in a variety of mature vegetation, including majestic cypress trees that are well over one hundred years old.  On certain holes the woodlands become strategic by protecting preferred angles into greens and fairways, requiring the player to bend the ball around trees, or to play a bold shot over the top.  Doglegged holes in the broad, open fields present the opportunity to play along a more direct line to the green.  This is probably the most exciting strategy, that of playing along the line of instinct, that direct line to the green, but having to make a bold play over sand, undulating terrain, or water.   

The design puts much more emphasis on judgment, as compared to physical prowess.  Therefore, the golfer who possesses a higher level of mental toughness, self-control, and the ability to focus on the task at hand will win out more times than not.  The golfer who thinks before acting, who plays within their capabilities, and plays the shots they have the greatest chance of playing well, will take a special delight in the HideOut course
