Florida Golf Course Review

Streamsong Golf Resort & Spa  - Red Course | Florida golf course

Streamsong Golf Resort & Spa in Bowling Green, Florida is one of the most spectacular golf properties in the state. In fact, the rolling sand dunes and elevation changes will make most golfers feel like they are not in Florida! The 2 championship courses highlight an upscale property (in the middle of nowhere, literally) that features a full scale resort with luxurious hotel, upscale dining and top notch service and amenities. For those staying at the resort, free shuttle service is provided from the hotel to the clubhouse and back. For more info on the resort, visit their website by clicking here.

The clubhouse provides outstanding views of the 19th hole, and gives visitors a glimpse of the sand dunes and terrain they will soon be navigating. The 19th hole is a spectacular par three over water, and can be played at the end of a round or as a warm up hole – a must play especially for first time visitors ( also a great "gambling" hole. On property is a full scale practice facility, with targeted range, short game area and putting green. The Fifty Nine Restaurant/Lounge is the centerpiece of the luxuriously appointed clubhouse, which also features a pro shop, banquet/outing facilities and meeting rooms, plus locker rooms with showers.

Walking is encouraged on the 2 traditional layouts. The caddie I spoke with intimated that approximately 60% of golfers visiting walk the course. The caddies are knowledgeable and friendly, as they provide pin placement info and yardages, as well as assistance with reading the large, undulating and at times, tiered green complexes. Caddies also work with those driving the course. The layouts intersect at points, but you will know which course you are playing as the Red Course has red flags on the greens, and the Blue Course has blue flags. The sprinkler heads on both courses have yardages measured to the center of the green.

Golfers will often encounter ample landing zones, but mounding, natural areas, tall native grasses, and a significant amount of waste areas and sand bunkers in various shapes and sizes, are consistently in play for offline tee shots and approaches. The fairways are magnificently manicured, and are undulating throughout. There are several water hazards on each course, providing challenge and aesthetic beauty. With few trees and the wide open spaces, wind can be a significant factor here. The bump and run approach can be utilized often here, but with many elevated green complexes, the lob wedge can also be used effectively. Most golfers will use every club in their bag before the round is over.

RED COURSE

The photos in this review are of the Red Course. Four of the initial five holes here have water in play, and are some of the most aesthetically pleasing holes anywhere. Navigate these opening holes effectively and you may be on your way to a low scoring round. The tips are daunting at 7148 yards and a 137 slope. Alternate sets of tees play from 6584 yards/132 slope, 6094 yards/124 slope ( perfect for the average golfer), and 5184 yards with a slope of 121 from the forward tees. There are 4 par fives, four spectacular par threes and 10 par fours on this layout.

Streamsong is located in central Florida, about a 70 minute drive from Tampa and a little more from the Orlando resort area. It is worth the drive to spend a day here, and you can't go wrong spending a night or 2 at the fabulous resort. This is a first class experience all the way – and one that is HIGHLY recommended by twoguyswhogolf. For more details, visit our informational listing page for the Red Course by clicking here.
