Streamsong Resort, already home to two top-tier golf courses, has announced plans to build a third course, which will open in autumn 2017 on its 16,000-acre property in central Florida.
The new course–Streamsong Black–will be designed by Gil Hanse, architect of The Olympic Golf Course in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and co-designer of Castle Stuart Golf Links in Scotland, among others. Construction is scheduled to commence this summer.
Streamsong Black will be built directly southeast of the two existing courses, Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue. In contrast to these two previous courses, which were intentionally intermingled, Streamsong Black will stand alone to give golfers a sense of peaceful isolation. Shaped by the property's former phosphate mining operations decades ago, Streamsong Black will feature abundant sand, rolling elevation changes, native grasses and ample views of ridges and the surrounding landscape on a grand scale.
The resort also plans to add a second practice facility, clubhouse and restaurant to serve guests playing Streamsong Black; Streamsong also indicated that it is assessing various alternatives for a fourth course, the details of which will be provided at a later date.
