Owner description: Welcome to Streamsong® Golf Clubhouse, a place so far removed from the ordinary it’s hard to believe it’s in Florida. The land, with its towering sand dunes, unexpected shifts in elevation and windswept prairie grasses, creates a unique canvas for some of the most creative holes in golf. It’s the first location in the world where the acclaimed golf course architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw and Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design have collaborated to create two 18-hole, intertwining golf layouts – Streamsong® Red and Streamsong® Blue. To properly experience the beauty of Streamsong, walking is encouraged and caddie and forecaddie services are available.At the heart of this unparalleled golf experience is the Streamsong Golf Clubhouse. Its features include: 12 guest rooms, Restaurant Fifty-Nine serving three meals daily, an inviting lounge, perfect for that after-play banter, a well-appointed golf shop, a lakeside terrace overlooking the bye hole, caddie and forecaddie services and 4,500 square feet of meeting space.In early 2014, Streamsong Resort lodge will open offering 216 guest rooms, multiple restaurants, spectacular lounge areas, fishing, sporting clays and much more.Streamsong is different than any other resort in countless ways, all of them wonderful.

The golf at Streamsong is very good. Not as good as Bandon Dunes or Whistling Straits, but very good. The food at P209 is horrible as is the service. Clubhouse food is average.

There are two outstanding golf courses on the property: the Red and the Blue. Each is different. The blue emphasizes the sand dunes more and there is more water (lagoons/ponds) on the Red. The courses are built to encourage walking which we did, and using a push cart or taking a caddie or forecaddie adds to the experience, at least for the older golfer. We had Pistol as our caddie and forecaddie and he was terrific, especially in reading the challenging greens, giving you the best line for you shots, and in adjusting distance for wind and other conditions for good club selection.

Both courses are great and I can't say that one is my favorite over the other. Although they share similar landscaping each manages to have its own distinct personality. Condition of the courses was outstanding.

The range is on sandy grass (as is the whole surrounding land) and has a large chipping area and practice trap.

At this point the courses are better than the lodge, but the lodge is very good. Restaurant 59 at the clubhouse is excellent.

Only one bathroom on each course.

Snack cart on a couple of holes. Cold bottled water is given out freely. By the way the local tap water has quite an unpleasant taste so bottled water is a good idea.

Chased the ball at the two Streamsong courses this past week: 'unique', as used by myself and others, is the word to describe these tracks: both Red & Blue courses are dunes/links type courses, with acres of bunkers both fairway and greenside. Considerable elevation change for FL, both tee to green and the multi-level large greens.

It is really a 'destination' set of tracks as it is located in 'nowhereville', FL. The clubhouse has several rooms and the newly completed larger hotel and convention center has a couple hundred more rooms. None are remotely inexpensive by anyone's measure...we stayed down the road about 20 mins at a Best Western in Bowling Green, FL, for a BenFranklin.

Pros:
-very different than the usual FL golf.
-very dramatic and visually stunning courses, for the most part.
-you just paid a lot of money to play these, so you feel good about yourself, lol!
-for the Golf Course List check off, this is worth a trip.
-Caddies, though pricey, are a must for help on shot direction and putting; without them, even the pros would 3-4 putt many of the greens playing for the first time, imo.
-lots of staff and all pleasant, though many have never worked at a golf club or resort, imo.

Cons or NitPics:
-even low to middle HDCPs will struggle, esp from 'normal' Men's silver tees or further back.
-some holes are blind or featureless, the first time through.
-you just paid a lot of money to play, but the caddies are looking for ~$120 per bag, cash.
-food prices, in restaurant, grill or on the course from the cart person, are a bit pricey, but understandable, as the Sysco truck has a long trip.
-We played Tues/Wed and on neither day was our tee time even close to being on time; thus you start 20-40 mins late. If your tee time is 1:30 PM, you may not get 18 in this time of year, due to late start, long round and early sunset. Some would be upset, per the price to play.
-carts are extra, but path only; we walked both days. It is a ~6 mile walk each round, imo. Not for the out of shape, imo.
-An ADA card or Doctor's note will get you into the optional cost cart, and off the path onto the course, but the caddy has to drive on the course... weird.
-afternoon round players may find the water bottle coolers empty as you are chugging up the last few holes, and thirsty.

Blue course is higher rated, slope and rating, but our foursome felt the Red was as hard or harder. The caddies felt the back nine of Red is the most difficult on the course.

We were all in decent shape for 55-75 yrs old, but none of us could imagine walking/playing this track in FL summers, as there is little shade, and a couple of open sheds for lightning 'protection', or a long jog back to the clubhouse in storms.

Overall, a unique golf experience, unusual for FL tracks, pricey, but worth a shot if you are 'in the area'. An unusual biz model for Mosaic, and it will be interesting to see how this new set of courses and golf destination resort does over time.

My GHIN HDCP 14.2 Our foursome ranged from 6.1 to a 20, (who was a 12 as a younger man), fwiw. I would not rec'd either course for 'beginner' or really high HDCP player, imo.

Played both courses just prior to Christmas. Interesting layout and challenging with lots of bunkers and waste area sand. With so many bunkers on the course, don't be surprised when you find some that are not raked. The greens are fun to putt with plenty of undulation to make for a challenging day. You really need to play 36 holes in order to come close to getting any value. While both courses are fun to play and visually appealing, the greens fees are excessive and the requirement of a caddy when you take a cart just adds a little more salt to the wound. Even riding in a cart requires staying on the path, thus you end up doing a lot of walking, so I would recommend carrying your bag or renting a pull cart and not paying for a caddy, just buy the yardage book in the clubhouse.

I am not easily impressed and have stayed at some beautiful places. Although the lodge has only been open a few weeks the staff is friendly and the service was excellent. We had group meetings during the day but I did get a chance to check out the spa. I had the best massage ever and would give Raphael 5 stars!! The drinks are a little steep but the sixth floor view was worth the extra expense.
I am not a golfer but the ones in our group said it was well worth the money and a course unlike any other in Florida. Thanks for a wonderful trip.
