Welcome to a golfer’s paradise, a vacationer’s perfect getaway and a new Florida destination.
Bowling Green, Florida, is home to the one-of-a-kind Streamsong Resort, named Best New Golf Resort Course in 2017 by Smart Meetings and ranked among the Top 100 Courses You Can Play 2016-2017 by Golf Magazine. A contemporary resort situated on 16,000 acres of reclaimed mining land, Streamsong boasts a landscape unique to Florida and naturally suited for golf.
“We sit about 55 miles to the east of Tampa and about 90 miles southwest of the Orlando airport,” says Richard Mogensen, general manager of Streamsong Resort. “Streamsong is home of the highest-ranked golf collection in Florida in any one place. It’s not the type of resort you’d expect in the middle of Florida. It’s quite a modern facility not commonly found on traditional golf courses.”
So, what does Streamsong have to offer you?
Although most guests spend their time at Streamsong enjoying its rolling courses or the relaxing spa, guestrooms are designed to add comfort and luxury to their stay. Award-winning designer Alberto Alfonso created custom paintings for every suite to reflect the resort’s natural Florida landscape. Most rooms boast water views extending all the way to the horizon through floor-to-ceiling windows. Every touch, down to the hardware on the windows, was carefully selected to meet guests’ needs.
At Streamsong, two of the world’s top golf architecture teams collaborated to create dream courses in the contours of the former mining site. All three courses here are ranked among the Top 50 courses in the United States.
Streamsong Red is the brainchild of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, architects of five designs in the Top 100 courses in the United States. Its 18 holes are surrounded by sand dunes, lakes and bunkers thanks to a history of mining on the land.
“The designers wanted to use the existing landscape that was here. A lot of the high mountainous features you see on the courses here are remnants of the mining process left over after reclamation. It is rather unique when you come here, because you don’t expect to see these depths and heights in Florida,” Mogensen explains.
Streamsong Blue, designed by renowned architect Tom Doak—who has four designs ranked among the top 100 in the world—is known for its elevation changes, huge bunkers and mountain-like sand dunes.
Streamsong Black was voted the Best New Course in 2018 by Golf, Inc. and is a par-73 championship layout. Although it’s only one year old, it has quickly become a nationally recognized course.
The Clubhouse sits atop the Blue and Red courses, offering sweeping views of the surrounding scenery. It’s the hub of all the action, including steak and seafood-laden Restaurant Fifty-Nine, a golf shop, pool and game tables for after-golf gatherings, plus an outdoor terrace overlooking the dramatic terrain.
“We don’t have any palm trees or flowers here,” says Mogensen. “Our golf design is akin to what you’d find in Scotland or Ireland and is links style. Walking during the season will help you enjoy the landscape and is representative of the tradition of golf.”
Streamsong offers numerous recreational activities to its guests, including archery, bass fishing and clay shooting.
The archery course is suited for both novices and experts, and a professional instructor fits guests with an advanced recurve bow before sharing techniques and practicing together.
Streamsong is also a great place to drop a line for guided freshwater bass fishing. Because the lakes and lakefront docks are part of Streamsong’s 16,000 acres, there will be no boat-crowded waters or disturbances during a day on the water.
Shooting sporting clays at Streamsong is another exhilarating challenge for beginners and expert marksmen alike.
Rest & Relaxation
AcquaPietra at Streamsong is far from the average resort spa. Rejuvenate in a European grotto-style spa atmosphere with six unique pools, hair and nail salons, and numerous treatments available.
Try one of the spa’s unique offerings, like a detoxifying espresso mud wrap for the body, sports and wellness massage, or a signature pure radiance facial. Special spa offers are available for Florida residents, and staff are happy to make arrangements for birthdays, bridal parties or other special occasions.
Streamsong features numerous restaurants to cater to different occasions and palates. Sotto Terra is the signature Italian restaurant of the resort with authentic meals prepared by an Italian chef.
“The one-pound, three-meat meatball is something groups share all the time here. The ossobuco, which is veal shank, is probably our No. 1 seller there alongside a great Italian wine,” Mogensen says.
For daytime eats, a more casual dining restaurant is P2O5, which serves all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bone Valley Tavern does the same and provides views of the resort’s most beautiful golf vistas.
For fine dining, lodge guests can enjoy Fragmentary Blue, a stargazing lounge serving cocktails, tapas and lighter fare. Restaurant 59 offers a variety of all-prime steaks and seafood items for a truly unforgettable meal.
