Minnesota Golfer - Fall 2017 - 16

SOUTHERN ESCAPES
For links lovers, a journey outside Orlando leads to
the spectacular Streamsong-plus a trio of worthy day trips.
* BY TOM BEDELL *
F
lorida golf is like a Florida
orange: you can squeeze it
just about anywhere
and
the juice will be pretty good.
That said, there's no question
that Orlando and its surrounding
area has been a real sweet spot as of late,
particularly when one factors in the new
Black course at the spectacular Streamsong-a
resort replete with rolling hills,
dramatic dunes and natural lakes.
Adding the new Gil Hanse routing to
a resort that already has a Coore-Crenshaw
track (the Red) and one by Tom
Doak (the Blue) makes for a resort that
is edging toward an embarrassment of
riches-though certainly a must-play
when traveling to the area for golf.
Minnesotans who play at Streamsong
have extra incentive to brag: the
courses were sculpted from reclaimed
phosphate mining land by The Mosaic
Company, headquartered in Plymouth.
The company often reclaims its mining
sites for parks or recreational areas,
but building a world-class golf resort in
Central Florida has taken reclamation to
a whole new level.
It only made sense, though, for this
stretch of land: the former mining site
was already 16,000 acres of rolling sand
dunes, punctuated with dramatic hills
and lagoons that were formed during its
working life. The Red and Blue courses
opened in 2013 to not a little trepidation
at the speed and diffi culty of putting on
some of the massive greens. Nonetheless,
the wide-open grandeur of both
tracks won most over; rarely do courses
