West Texas is special place for many reasons. It has a lot of oil- You bet. It has some terrific high school football teams oh yeah. The people are nice and friendly and the men still tip their hats to the ladies. What is sometimes lacking in West Texas is water, big tall trees, winding rivers, clear lakes and rolling hills covered in deep green grass. It does have some really nice golf courses that have some of these features. Some. But just a little bit East, into the edge of the Texas Hill Country, where men also still tip their hats to the ladies there is a place with lots of water, green grass and breathtaking lake views, and a golf course that is built along the shores of one of the most picturesque lakes in Texas. A lake formed by the junction of three rivers and lined with pecan, cedar elm, ash & oak trees and with Kings Point Cove Resort and The Hide Out golf club. The Hide Out hosts visitors from many cities in West Texas including Abilene golfers, San Angelo golfers, Odessa and Midland golfers, Big Spring and Sweetwater golfers and so many more. With its new 7000 square foot club house, restaurant, bar and pro shop Kings Point cove can accommodate groups of two or two hundred. The Lode and rental cabins can provide lodging for up to 50 guests and the new RV facilities at the resort will add room for over 40 motor coach and fifth wheel units. And did we mention golf. Well The Hide Out Golf Club has been voted the #1, Lake Side, golf course for two years in a row and when you see the natural beauty, bent grass greens of the par 72, Championship course you will see why. A recent Ft. Worth charity golf tournament was hosted at The Hideout and has now made it their official home. If you are a West Texas golfer or are planning a reunion, wedding or retreat you might want to stop in and see whats up at Kings Point Cove and The Hide Out Golf Club.

If you live in Midland, TX and havent played King’s Point Cove in Brownwood, TX, you are in for a treat!

Our four sets of tees accommodate golfers of each skill level. These 18 holes of Championship Golf, while still premature in age is widely considered amongst the area’s best layout
Odessa, TX golfers agree that the course is another brilliant design by Bill Johnston of Phoenix, Arizona. We will describe many of his trademarks, while giving a hole-by-hole design of this scenic, yet playable, golf course. The best design description of a Johnston design is its naturalness. Bill seems to make a course meld its way through the trees and around the water, in a comfortable match with the natural terrain.
Every San Angelo, TX golfer will tell you that tothing is contrived and it does remind one of older designs that have withstood the challenge of time, and yet have maintained their excellence. He keeps all levels of golfers in mind; He is aware of the skills of a premier golfer like himself, or the amateur, who he knows keeps the game of golf alive. A course without gimmicks or hidden surprises, this resort course is a true challenge for the low handicapper and fun for all who will be privileged to play the Hideout.
