Streamsong Red - Fort Meade, FL

Streamsong Red was created by the design team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw and was opened to the public in 2012.  Just about everyone I meet raves about the 2 courses at Streamsong, so I was very excited to finally get a chance to play.  I was also excited to have two big time playing partners in Ashley Mayo and Sean Ogle.  The excitement was officially tripled when I read Streamsong's philosophy on why a golf course should be walked.

The Red course starts off with a ridiculously good first 6 holes that set the tone for a great day of laughs, screams, and sun burns.  I particularly enjoyed the 4th hole, It felt like I was at a drive in movie theater hitting my approach towards the big screen.  Not exactly sure if that was the intended vibe, but I freaking loved it.  Coore and Crenshaw have done a magnificent job of shaping the terrain to create a unique experience on every hole.

By the numbers;

  • 2:8 - Ratio of sausages to selfies taken at the turn
  • .0000001 - Measurement in inches by which my eagle putt on 13 missed
  • 0% - Chance that Sean's birdie bomb on #7 had of NOT going in the hole
  • 7/10 - Severity of Ashley's sunburn
  • 0 - Number of times our caddie had seen any group take this many pictures
  • 3 - # of satisfied golfers
