Review: Streamsong Resort Golf Courses, Central FL
Getting to these courses built in the middle of an old phosphate mine isn’t really all that difficult. They are only 1.5 hour from Orlando and 1 hour from Tampa. While distance or time isn’t that big of deal, they literally are in the middle of nowhere. The closest “town” is 15 minutes away, but that shouldn’t stop you from playing these courses. Their new lodge has everything you’ll need to stay and enjoy your rounds and night there. If you live in the state of FL they are a must play. If you live anywhere else in the US, put these on the top of your list of places to play, the resort hotel is done and you now have a beautiful place to stay. In my opinion these should be on your top 10 public places to play. Another benefit these courses have being built in FL is that they will have year round golfing weather which some other great courses don’t have. The only draw back could be the summer months might get really hot with no shade anywhere on the course, but the covered carts should offer enough shade to play even on the sunniest of days. The now completed Streamsong resort has 200+ rooms, restaurants, a spa, guided fishing tours, and 36 holes of “hands down” the best golf in the state and really some of the best golf in the world.

Immediately the impressive structure which rises out of the formal phosphate mine grabs your attention with its style and brilliance. From the main entrance it is big and modern, but looking through the main entrance out on the yard, pool and pond give you sense of its relaxing qualities. The main lobby is modern yet cozy as you can head to the lounge bar, enjoy a book by the fireplace or head off to your room.
The rooms are done in a modern yet warm way with fireplaces and woods and unique features and layouts that make it comfortable and function yet slightly different from your typical hotel room. Everything was done with an artistic flair and local infusion. Outside the hotel is a beautiful grounds the overlooks a fishing pond. The infinity edged pool and cabanas will be great for soaking in the sun and heat and the restaurants and bars on site will keep you close to home for the extent of your stay. (since their is nothing else within 20 minutes that will keep you there too) I also think the large conference centers will bring in FL businesses for meetings and gatherings.
