Streamsong Black is a Par-73 championship course offering breathtaking views of the vast landscape, which includes flowing elevation, and rolls, tumbles and sand ridges akin to the Sand Belt Region of Melbourne, Australia.
The third course in the Streamsong Resort family, Streamsong Black, debuted this week. With the course, designed by Gil Hanse, Streamsong is now the only location in the world where players can enjoy courses designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw – Streamsong Red; Tom Doak – Streamsong Blue; and now Hanse.
Black, unlike Red and Blue, stretches longer. At par-73 – with five par 5s – the largest difference in the courses is that Black feels more expansive, thanks to larger greens, especially near the turn where the course’s signature windmill comes into view.
However, if the long game isn’t your strength, don’t worry. In addition to Streamsong Black, the resort will introduce The Roundabout, a free-flowing practice facility, also designed by Hanse’s team, which features several green complexes and practice holes to accommodate the increase in play. The Roundabout also includes an alternate ninth green, providing a play-in option for guests looking to play a shorter, nine-hole loop back to the clubhouse.
Joining the Roundabout is The Gauntlet, a two-acre putting green, which sits immediately outside of the Streamsong Black clubhouse, and a new clubhouse, designed by Tampa architects Albert and Carolos Alfonso, featuring Bone Valley Tavern, the clubhouse restaurant.
