Streamsong Resort Honored by GOLF Magazine in Best New Courses 2012 List

Streamsong Red named Best New U.S. Course You Can Play; Blue receives Honorable Mention

(Streamsong, Fla.) – Streamsong Resort, a development from The Mosaic Company, announced that both Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue have been recognized by GOLF Magazine in the publication’s “Best New Courses 2012” list.

Streamsong Red, designed by Coore & Crenshaw, was named the “Best New U.S. Course You Can Play” while Streamsong Blue, designed by Renaissance Golf Design (Tom Doak), received the “Best New U.S. Course You Can Play” Honorable Mention. Streamsong Resort is the first venue in the world where both architectural firms have collaborated to design 36 holes.

“It’s an honor to have Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue recognized by such an influential publication,” said Scott Wilson, Director of Golf at Streamsong Resort. “This is a true testament to the superb design and collaboration of Bill Coore, Ben Crenshaw and Tom Doak, as well as the months of hard work and dedication put in by our crew on the ground at Streamsong.”

Streamsong Resort, built on approximately 16,000 acres of former phosphate mine land, allowed both architectural firms to leverage their visionary talents and experience working with exceptional sand sites to create two unparalleled, intersecting golf courses. The extraordinary topography of the land - featuring towering sand dunes, dramatic contours, lakes and native vegetation left from the mining process - make Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue a challenging and visually fulfilling golf experience unlike any other in Florida.

Both Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue are scheduled to open to the public Dec. 21. The golf clubhouse, featuring 4,500 square-feet of meeting space, a steakhouse with private dining, lounge and golf shop will open Dec. 21, as well. The 12 guest rooms (designed to accommodate 16 guests) located in the golf clubhouse will open Dec. 30.

Tee times and stay and play packages are now available for booking via www.streamsongresort.com.

“We are excited about this distinction from GOLF Magazine just prior to our scheduled opening to the public in late December,” said Mike Speicher, General Manager at Streamsong Resort. “Our team at Streamsong Resort is ready to provide an outstanding experience for each and every guest.”

KemperSports is responsible for management of golf operations at Streamsong Resort. Interstate Hotels & Resorts has overall management responsibility for the resort including a new 200-plus room lodge, conference center and spa that will open on the property in late 2013.
