Opening January 19
A new central Florida golf and meetings destination, Streamsong Resort will open its main lodge January 19. Located southwest of Tampa and north of Ft. Myers near Fort Meade in Polk County, the lakeside, 16,000-acre property features two golf courses—Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue—that have already won acclaim from GOLF magazine. Built on 2,000 acres of sand dunes—some 75 feet high—left over from an old mining operation, the hilly, sandy courses are unlike any other in Florida. Group space at the property includes 24,600 square feet in the lodge, 4,500 square feet of banquet space in the clubhouse, and 40,000 square feet in outdoor venues, including a rooftop terrace. Recreational activities include sporting clays, bass fishing, tennis, an infinity pool, and a grotto-style full-service spa
