Streamsong - Central Florida's Luxury Golf Resort
Unique, demanding, breathtaking, unequaled and dramatic are just a few of the adjectives used to describe the 36 holes of golf that make up Streamsong Resort. With so many course offerings throughout Florida, it is very difficult for golfers to pick their favorites, but when it comes to distinctive course design, one has to begin the conversation with Central Florida’s newest championship golf courses, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue.

Bill Core, Ben Crenshaw and Tom Doak
Streamsong Resort’s Red Course, designed by Bill Core and Ben Crenshaw, and the Blue Course designed by Tom Doak, utilize the natural contours, sand dunes and native grasses to offer a golf experience that is reminiscent of the links-style courses of the British Isles.
Built upon reclaimed phosphate mining land, Streamsong’s courses are atypical of most Florida golf courses. The Streamsong Courses trade palm trees, manicured flower beds, beach sand bunkers and house lined fairways for towering sand dunes, expansive waste areas, native grasses and sweeping vistas across the Central Florida horizon. Golf publications world-wide continue to recognize Streamsong as 36 of the most spectacular golf holes in the United States.
Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue
You don’t have to take our word for it; even the most jaded golf course reviewers have been singing the praises of Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue. Accolades for both courses include: Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play” (#12 Red; #16 Blue), Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” (#18 Red; #24 Blue) and Golfweek’s “Best Resort Courses” (#12 Red; #14 Blue). Even mainstream media outlets are saying great things about Streamsong Resort with the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Men’s Journal, USA Today, DuPont Registry, TripAdvisor and some many others raving about the resort and its amenities.
Golf Course Designed for Walking
Mark Twain famously opined that “Golf is a good walk spoiled,” but good news, dear reader, that is not the case at these elegant courses. At Streamsong Resort you will cherish your connection to the striking scenery by walking during your round.
Both Streamsong Blue and Streamsong Red were designed with greens and tees in close proximity, and long walks between holes are non-existent. Walking is preferred at Streamsong Resort and the clubhouse staff will recommend a trusty caddy or provide you with a bag cart to ease the load during your round.
As a proper complement to the highly acclaimed Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue, Streamsong’s third championship layout, the widely acclaimed Streamsong Black will debut in autumn 2017. Streamsong Black is designed by acclaimed golf course architect Gil Hanse, designer of the 2016 Olympic Course in Rio de Janeiro, Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness, Scotland (host of the Scottish Open), Los Angeles Country Club (North and South). The highly anticipated Streamsong Black is an expansive, strategic and eye-popping par 73 layout with rolling terrain and vistas which are reminiscent of the Sand Belt of Australia. Streamsong Black tee time reservations are now be accepted for late 2017 play and available through two and three-night golf packages.
Bass Fishing and AquaPietra Spa
Streamsong Resort’s golf utopia may be the primary reason for your visit, but the resort’s accompaniment of fine amenities will help you round out your golf vacation. For those looking to unwind after a trying day on the links, the lakeside infinity pool and poolside bar and cabanas are sure to please. A relaxing massage, a re-hydration facial or a tension melting “Body Bliss” treatment in the grotto-style AquaPietra Spa are sure to forget those missed par putts from your round.
If your adrenalin is still pumping from a new personal 18-hole record, Streamsong Resort’s world class guided bass fishing excursions or sporting clays are sure to keep your blood pumping. If solitude is what you side, you can take a relaxing walk on the resort’s paved nature and birdwatching trail or settle down next to one of the outdoor fireplaces.
