Streamsong, Florida – August 14, 2014 – Since opening to the public in December 2012, Streamsong Resort has gained national and international media exposure, quickly becoming known as one of the best modern golf resorts in the country. Its two courses, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue, have added another prominent ranking to their growing list of accolades as both courses have been named to GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play list for the first time. Streamsong Red debuts at No. 12, while Streamsong Blue ranks No. 16 among the finest public-access golf courses in America, making them the highest-debuting courses on the 2014 list.
The GOLF magazine list, compiled biennially based on input from a group of panelists, is published in the September 2014 issue.
“It’s rewarding that our vision for an authentic golf experience at Streamsong Resort is being recognized through such prestigious accolades as this ranking from GOLF magazine,” said Rich Mack, CFO and executive vice president for The Mosaic Company. “We could not be more proud for Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue to make such a high debut alongside some of the greatest golf courses in the nation. We are fortunate and honored to be in this company, and intend to work hard to make Streamsong a special golf experience.”
Streamsong Resort is built on approximately 16,000 acres of former phosphate mining land and includes the extraordinary terrain where Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw of Coore & Crenshaw and Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design leveraged their architectural talents to create two unparalleled, intersecting golf courses unlike any other in Florida.
In less than two years since opening, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue have received 15 accolades, including prestigious rankings on the “Best New U.S. Course you Can Play” list by GOLF magazine (December 2012) and “Best Modern Courses” list by Golfweek (March 2013). In 2014, Streamsong’s Clubhouse and Lodge were honored by the American Institute of Architects, Florida chapter. Each building received a Merit Award of Excellence for New Work for its design, which draws inspiration from the unique characteristics of the resort’s landscape and climate.
Streamsong’s Lodge, designed by Alfonso Architects, features 216 luxury guest rooms, 14,000 square-feet of flexible conference and meeting space, casual and fine dining and a full-service grotto-style spa. The property also includes outdoor reception areas, a lakeside pool, a hiking and birding trail, guided bass fishing and sporting clays.
