Streamsong Golf Resort & Spa
"Best New USA Course You Can Play 2012"
Winner of Golf Magazine "Best New Course" is the Coore-Crenshaw Red Course. Tom Doak designed the Blue Course, which is also "Best New" nominated!
Too Good To Be True?
A central Florida resort with links golf? Two courses already being considered as world top 100 status? A 215 room hotel and spa in the "middle of nowhere"? If they build it, will they come?
The short answer is: YES! Streamsong is a well planned, expertly run brand new golf resort in central florida, about 1 hour and 15 min SE from Tampa and 1.5 hours from SW from Orlando. There are no waterfalls and not a Palm tree on the entire 16,000 acre property. Site of a former phosphorus mining facility, the owners found sand piles and undulations unlike anything in the state of Florida.
Tom Doak, Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore probably thought the same thing as we did upon the drive in on the two lane highway: "can this be the right place?" However, when they arrived they found abundant sand, high dunes and rolling hills. They looked at the sites and began drawing on the topo map (Doak with a blue pen and Coore-Crenshaw with a red pen, thus the names of the golf courses). Some of the holes look hardly touched, as both of these design teams attribute to their "minimalist" philosophies.
Most golfers so far favor the Coore-Crenshaw Red Course slightly over the Doak Blue Course, but almost all people come and play both. We think they are both great, and one of the best new things to happen to Florida in many, many years.
Our Wide World of Golf & Premier Golf package includes both courses, so you can be your own judge. But trust us, you will like them both and you will like what you see!
We suspect that with over 16,000 acres, we have not seen the end of the course construction on site. The new 215 rom hotel (scheduled to open in late 2013) and Spa can accommodate plenty of players, so it will not surprise me if new courses are announced. Like Bandon Dunes, (which Streamsong has been compared to but we think unfairly because Streamsong does not have an ocean) a new course every few years might keep the core golf crowd coming back time and time again.
These courses are for purists. Golfers who like links golf and most who like to walk. If that's your cup of tea, then Streamsong is your new must play!
