When a user creates a new Opportunity the Close Date field is required to be entered. However, the requirement is to automatically set this field to 1 date from when the opportunity is created. I handle this via a on creation workflow rule. But, since this field is a standard required field on the Opportunity object I cannot remove it from the page layout and users must but a date even though it'll be updated upon creating the record.

Is there anyway to make it so when a new Opportunity is being created ANY value is defaulted into this field so the user doesn't have to put anything else?
