Streamsong ranking sets new standard and expectation for Florida golf
STREAMSONG, FLORIDA – August 25, 2016 – Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue – two of the top modern courses in the industry that emerged from a former phosphate mine nearly four years ago – have been named to GOLF Magazine’s list of “Top 100 Courses You Can Play 2016-2017,” a biennial ranking of the 100 best public-access courses in America. Since their debut rankings on this list just two years ago, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue have climbed to the No. 10 and No. 14 spots respectively, making Streamsong Resort one of only three destinations on the list to have multiple courses in the top 15. The other two resorts to share this high honor are Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and Pebble Beach, proving that the Streamsong is ushering in a new era of golf in Florida.
“The rise in the rankings of Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue is a recognition that we’re very proud of and it’s a testament to our dedicated staff, talented course designers and an unforgettable golf experience that just keeps getting better,” said Rich Mack, CFO and executive vice president for The Mosaic Company, which owns the resort. “In less than four years, it is remarkable to see Streamsong Red rise among the top 10 public courses in the U.S. With the arrival of Streamsong Black next year, we look forward to continued growth to become one of the best golf destinations in the country.”
The GOLF Magazine rankings are based on input from a group of panelists. The panelists singled out Streamsong Red, recognizing the course for its “firm, fast-running fairways, significant elevation changes, and showmanship in the form of sunken lakes,” citing that “it adds up to a course that seems destined to rise higher in years to come.”
In less than four years since opening, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue have received numerous accolades throughout the golf industry, including Golfweek’s “Best Modern Courses” and “Best Resort Courses,” Golf Digest’s “Florida’s Best Public Courses” and Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S. 2014”
Tucked away on 16,000 natural acres in central Florida, Streamsong also offers guests a range of unique activities and amenities, including guided bass fishing excursions on the resort’s prolific lakes and streams, sporting clays, archery, the grotto-style AcquaPietra spa, tennis courts and a nature trail.
