Golf courses at Mosaic’s Streamsong resort make Golf Magazine’s Top 20 list

in Uncategorized by

Two Florida golf courses have been ranked among the Top 20 public-access courses in the country by GOLF Magazine.

Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue in Bowling Green opened in late 2012. They are ranked number 12 and 16 on a list of 100 golf courses “you can play.” The courses were chosen by a panel of golf experts.

“The courses at Streamsong were designed and built by two of the best architectural teams in the world. The courses were developed on a dramatic and completely unexpected sand-based land form in an authentic links style with hard and fast playing conditions. Walking is encouraged at Streamsong and we have some of the best caddies in the country,” wrote Tom Sunnarborg, vice president of land development and management for the Mosaic Company, which owns Streamsong.

Sunnarborg says reservations for tee times have already increased since the rankings were announced this week.

The latest accolade builds on an already impressive list including “Best New U.S. Course You Can Play” list by GOLF magazine (December 2012) and “Best Modern Courses” list by Golfweek (March 2013).

Streamsong is also home to a resort, four restaurants, a spa and a bass fishing program. The courses are built on 16,000 acres of former phosphate mining land.
