Hideout Golf Course is set for annual Shootout and Amateur

If you were hoping for a leisurely round of golf at the Hideout this weekend, you might have to settle for being a spectator. For the third straight year the Monticello golf course will break a tournament attendance record when it hosts the popular Hideout Shootout and Amateur.

Seventy teams are set to play in the Shootout on Friday, July 31 in a two-man best ball format that will begin with a 2 p.m. shotgun start. The tournament has a $120 entrance fee, cart included.

At 9 a.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday, August 1-2, players will tee off the 36-hole Amateur tournament. Hideout Pro Tyler Ivins was forced to limit the Amateur field to 105 golfers due to cart availability, or it likely would also have set a new attendance record.

The annual Shootout and Amateur continue to grow and attract more players every year. The turnout in a year that has been riddled with cancellations and disappointments due to COVID-19 is testimony of the success of both tournaments.

Players this year are coming to Monticello from many miles away, including locations such as Mesquite, NV; Page, Flagstaff, and Williams, AZ; Utah County, St. George, and Price, UT; Montrose, Grand Junction, and Cortez, CO; and Farmington, NM.

The Hideout continues to receive much of its marketing by word of mouth – when people play the course, then bring others back with them when they return.

Ivins and the Hideout staff are excited that the course is in great condition for the tournaments this weekend.

They’re hoping for good weather and for everyone to have a good time.
