Florida’s Streamsong Resort welcomes the all-new Streamsong Black course to its portfolio of top-rated golf courses.

Since opening in 2013, Florida’s Streamsong Resort has lured golfers from around the world to its remote, picturesque surroundings. No surprise there, considering it boasts two courses that have secured spots on Golf Digest’s Top 100 Public Courses in America (Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw’s Streamsong Red at No. 17 and Tom Doak’s Streamsong Blue at No. 22).
But two courses weren’t enough for this luxury resort, which is situated on a former mining property approximately 50 miles southeast of Tampa. This fall, Streamsong proudly introduces another surefire stud to its color-labeled stable: Gil Hanse’s Streamsong Black. This expansive par-73
course features a strategic layout of rolling terrain, massive blowout bunkers and steep sand dunes reminiscent of Australia’s Sand Belt.
Guests have the option of staying in one of the 12 clubhouse suites or in the 216-room Main Lodge, which features a lakeside pool, a full-service spa and a rooftop bar, Fragmentary Blue, which uses its sixth-floor elevation to showcase the diverse ecosystems of the property during the day and a stunning canopy of stars at night.
Brilliantly managed by KemperSports and projecting more great golf in the future, Streamsong Resort, incredible as it may be, is still climbing toward its peak. streamsongresort.com
