Different from the other two golf courses in scope and design, but consistent with the use of the unique topography at this former phosphate mining site between Orlando and Tampa, the new Black Course at Streamsong Resort is a perfect complement to the golf already there and it already has its own identity. Designed by Gil Hanse, who also did the Olympic Course in Brazil as well as several other excellent designs as of late, the Black gives Streamsong a trio of courses designed by the some of most respected teams in the modern era. The other two courses are designed by Tom Doak (this one, the Blue, is more links-like than the other two) and Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore (Red). Hanse and his partner Jim Wagner have created a layout that is all their own with the Black. With 11 acres of greens that run seamlessly into the fairways and large bunkers, the course can be played just about any way you want, on the ground, in the air, or a combination of both since the greens are large and undulating, but also receptive. There are drivable par 4s, a cool, short par 3 and four par 5s that are all very different from each other. The new course also comes with its own clubhouse, which fits into the overall contemporary design of the resort. All-in-all, the Black is worth another trip out to Streamsong, and if you've never been here before, you'll want to play all three.
