Hide +Start DOSBox in emulation station

I'm trying to hide the "+Start DOSBox" part in the emulation station menu but I don't know how (and if it's possible).
I would like to remove it so children can not start it as it's not a game. Thanks in advanced. For more information about the setup keep on reading.
I am using an Raspberry Pi 4, with the preloaded image: md5: 1ea0cbf19991273cc8b50bbca7b52806 from this website.
I use .sh scripts to run each game and hide the folder by putting a '.' in front of the directory.
For example: DDave.sh looks like this:
#!/bin/bash /opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -conf "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc/.zzz/DDave/DDave.conf"
I use for every game a different map as I'm limited to the arcade buttons and USB SNES controller.
I tried the following:
- Remove it from the gamelist.xml (still showing)
- Remove the '+Start DOSBox.sh' script (games won't start anymore)
- Moved it to the hidden folder (games won't start anymore)
If more information is needed feel free to ask me about it.
Thanks in advanced,

You can remove it from the gameslist.xml, but you will have turn off the startup scan that finds new roms on your system. As long as it never searches for it again, it's won't get re-added.

@thorr69 Great solution, thanks a lot :).
I turned the scan off and removed it from the gamelist.xml it's gone now and it stays away, awesome!
