That puts the Hideout in the same company as Bethpage Black in New York and Torrey Pines in California, who both have hosted US Opens in the past four years. Of note also is another course in our area, Pinion Hills in Farmington, NM which is #4 on the list.
The Hideout is also ranked fifth in Utah when rated to all courses, public and private. Those courses rated ahead of the Hideout include Sand Hollow and Coral Canyon in St. George, Thanksgiving Point in Lehi and Kokopelli, a new course in Apple Valley near Hurricane. Not bad company to keep.
People are finding out about our little gem here, with play up 10-15 percent over last year already and last year was the best year yet at the Hideout.
This past weekend, 158 golfers participated in the annual Arch and the Horesehead tournament, an event that features the Hideout and Saturday and the Moab Golf Club on Sunday.
Golf pro Tyler Ivins reports 158 golfers is the biggest event ever held at the Hideout, bigger than the heydays of the San Juan Amateur.
According to Ivins, and Sportshorts can confirm, the Hideout is in the best shape ever. The next event for the Hideout is the Grant Leavitt Memorial Tournament, set for Saturday, June 23, following by the annual Hideout Amateur on July 27-9. Better get on down to the Hideout and see what all the shoutin’ is about.
