Golf at Streamsong

For my golfing friends – the relatively new Streamsong courses in Florida live up to their good reputation. We played the Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw designed Red course (pictured here) and enjoyed the links-style layout carved out of central Florida’s phosphate-mined landscape. Elements of the old rail system have been incorporated into the design, down to the railroad ties used as tee markers.

The resort is a minimalist contemporary design and very nice.  We enjoyed several of the restaurants, and sunset from the top floor bar; staff were exceptionally friendly.  Facilities include bass fishing, sporting clays, pool, tennis, bocce and a spa.  A third golf course is currently under construction.

You can walk before 11 and fore-caddies are available if in a cart (“G” was knowledgeable, entertaining and encouraging).  For those who have to know, there are opportunities for food and beverages during play.

We had a terrific breakfast at P2O5 (do you know what P2 O5 means?)

It’s worth the trip.  You are really out in the middle of nowhere, but to focus the location a bit, you are about 30 minutes south of Lakeland, 3.5 hours from Miami, an hour from Tampa.  Check it out:  http://www.streamsongresort.com
