DescriptionFor thousands of years, visitors have found a Hideout where two perennial streams meet on the Eastern face of the Abajo mountain in Eastern Utah. The Hideout boasts a variety of wildlife and lush vegetation in the high desert plain in Monticello, Utah. It has been the site of many shootouts and showdowns through the years and a place of refuge from the heat of summer. The meadows surrounding the streams were a favorite summer spot for Native American Tribes and a favorite spot for cowboys to run their annual fall cattle roundup. A large number of fugitives also found these isolated canyons and meadows to be a great refuge. So many fugitives fled here to escape the law that it became know as the Outlaw Trail.
After the eventual cleanup of the uranium mill that was built in the 1950's to accommodate the uranium discovery, the City of Monticello constructed a new 18 hole golf course. Monticello took full advantage of the spectacular land surrounding the place that since the early history of Monticello has been known as Old Man West in honor of a prospector who built a small cabin and corral around the two meandering streams.
Like Old Man West and the outlaws of old, many have come to enjoy the peace and solitude of the beautiful canyons and mountains surrounding The Hideout. As it always has, the Hideout Golf Course is a place to get away, to escape the heat and care. It continues to be a place of shootouts, showdowns, and standoffs.
