Streamsong Resort is a luxury golf, spa, and nature-based retreat located in rural Polk County, Fla. The resort’s six-story, 305,000-sf lodge includes 228 guest rooms, a conference center, a spa, a lakeside infinity pool, restaurants, a rooftop bar, and outdoor amenities.
There is no consensus on the best course at Streamsong, the Red or Blue. The stereotypical answer is the Blue favors higher handicaps because three-putting Doak’s wild greens is more forgiving than losing balls on the demanding tee shots of the Red. Both have some dynamite holes — the most-photographed par-3 seventh on the Blue and the dunesy par-5 seventh on the Red. The layouts are so intertwined that the resort sells a 12-hole loop — playing the first six holes on each course — to guests who arrive late in the day or only have a short window for golf.
Adding a third course in September 2017, the Black, Streamsong will, most likely, have 3 courses rated in the top 100 very soon.
Add the great dining choices and the luxury accommodations and this place is very special.
