Experience The Chain at Streamsong Resort

“The Bucket,” a two and a half acre putting course that is part of the new concept also steps from the Lodge entrance, is open for resort guest play daily at noon.

The Chain is designed to dial up the fun factor for Streamsong guests, with match play and walking at the heart of the experience.  Each hole has teeing areas (instead of tee markers) with dragline chains (the course namesake) in the ground to mark the beginning and end of each teeing area.  The idea here is for guests to choose where they’d like to play each hole in a match play format with the winner of each hole choosing the tee location on the following hole.  The scorecard has no reference to par although most of the holes are one shot holes with a range of yardages from 109 – 293 from the farthest teeing area.  The course includes a six hole loop that plays around a grove of Oaks with holes that vary in length from 110 – 153 yards from the farthest teeing areas or as short as 50 – 88 yards from the most forward teeing area.  From the six hole loop, guests venture into the 13 hole loop where holes measure up to 293 yards with more forced carries in play depending on the tee you choose.

Designed by Coore & Crenshaw Design

The team from Coore and Crenshaw Design have created another masterpiece on the roughly 36 acre site taking advantage of every opportunity to showcase the unexpected elevation changes and live oak groves, water features, and sandscapes throughout to create a compelling layout. The legendary duo who also designed Streamsong Red, which opened in 2012 with “Best New U.S. Course” honors and is perennially ranked among the top 30 courses in the U.S. by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek, have made several changes and additions to the original routing. Most notably, the 3,000 yard walking layout now includes 19 holes ranging from 109 to over 293 yards, with a six- and 13- hole loop.

Large dragline chain links similar to those used in the mining process on the Streamsong site will mark the beginning and end of each tee box, however specified tee markers and a score relative to par are thoughtfully and purposefully absent from the concept. Players will be encouraged to tee off from whichever teeing area they like on each hole, with a nod toward match play. Now marking the middle of the site is a 22,000 pound dragline bucket, also the namesake for The Bucket putting course, that was installed in early January 2023 and will serve as a constant reminder of the history of its location.

So, what are you waiting for? Book your trip to Streamsong today and be among the first to experience The Chain. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a novice player, this newest addition is sure to leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Get ready to elevate your game and discover why Streamsong is the ultimate golfing paradise.
