I found the hidden gem the night before, as I sat on the couch wondering and searching GolfNow. I was greeting by a very nice man who took my clubs. I met the Director of Golf, he took time to share the status of the course and the green speeds etc...,I played from the Blue (tips) 38, 41!, I finished in 2:40. I loved this course! You had to make shots with your irons! I hope this Cours will be discovered by many more golfers!! The clubhouse had amazing deals on Appel!

I recently finished my 2nd round of golf at "The Hideaways" course near Page Field in Ft Myers. The only place I have played on such well manicured grass. The tee boxes are perfect, the fairways are fantastic, the approaches are nearly divot free, the greens are fast & true. Being a par 67, the course is a little shorter than many. Bring your best short game. I love the new clubhouse/proshop. The staff, cart guy to the director of golf, were very helpful & sincerely interested that I had a good round. I was told that the course would be taken totally private after next summer - if you aren't a member, get there while you can....... I love this place!!

Absolutely LOVE this course and play it when we come to Fort Myers in the summer (wish we could play it in the winter too!) and we got a hole in one on #5 today!

Conditions were excellent, greens amazing.

By far the best course I've ever played!

I very much enjoyed my 1st round at The Hideaway. The course is in immaculate condition given our severe drought. Fairways, rough, greens all plush and looking great. Greens aren't the quickest you'll play, but the roll is true. The layout is interesting and alot of fun to play. The traps were also in fantastic condition.

The value for your money is very real here. Its a short course which should play quick. A new clubhouse is set to open in just over a month which will greatly improve the overall experience. If your looking for a fair price and truly outstanding conditioning, this is the place. Give it a look.

Greens and fairways are immaculate. Beautiful course lots of water that is not hard to avoid if you are careful.

Nice layout, holes have nice isolated feel from one another.

Much better test of golf than one would expect just looking at the scorecard.

Pace of play was surprisingly good. My favorite course in the area.
