This course was in wonderful condition even though it was recently airated.

Fairways were a little soft because of the rain. The pace of play was amazing.

I just can’t say enough good things about this course.

Not a single complaint with course, great condition and friendly staff! Complaint with GolfNow, started to downpour at the turn, and while the golf course was giving out rain checks for the back side, because my reservation was prepaid to GolfNow, I was told I would need to contact them for any compensation. There is no way to contact them, the phone number given to contact them is a recorded message that give you no options or a real person! Very disappointed!!!

The Hideaway is one of the most accurately-named courses I've encountered in my travels. Even Fort Myers locals didn't seem to have heard of this par-67, 5,100 layout. That's the way the residents of the condo community surrounding the course like it. They're proud of their domain, and rule the roost during "Snowbird Season." But from May through October, it is open to outside play, and if you find yourself in the area, you should consider stopping by. The course is no pushover, and will test your wedge play. The Platinum Paspalum greens are fun to putt.
