Florida Doak/Coore & Crenshaw Resort launched

After months of speculation, the new 36-hole resort project featuring courses simultaneously designed and built by the firms of Coore and Crenshaw and Renaissance Golf Design, has been revealed.
The Streamsong Resort is being developed by the Mosaic Company, the world’s largest producer of phosphates, on a 16,000 acre former mine site in Florida, between Tampa and Orlando.
Streamsong’s site is unique as the mining activities have created dramatic landforms that, according to the architects, will make for great golf holes.
“This land is naturally conducive to uncovering great golf holes,” said Ben Crenshaw. “It is going to be spectacular, and has its own inherent character that will translate into two memorable courses.” Renaissance boss Tom Doak concurred, saying: “This is such a good piece of land for golf. The variety of contours created by the mining process is unique for a project in Florida, or anywhere in the Southeast. I have been friends with Bill and Ben for many years, and it is great fun to be working right alongside them. I think it will bring out the best work in each of us.”
Construction of the two courses began in mid-2010, and they are expected to be ready for a soft opening in late 2012, with the resort’s grand opening planned for 2013. Streamsong’s facilities will also include 140 guest rooms in the main resort building, five four bedroomed villas, bars and restaurants, a spa, and bass fishing.
Bill Coore said: “At Streamsong, we have the opportunity to work with a site that contains some of the most unusual, interesting and dramatic land forms we have ever encountered. From its towering dunes, sandy fields, and pristine lakes, we believe this land has the potential to yield two extraordinary golf courses. Being able to work alongside Tom Doak and our good friends at Renaissance Golf Design to simultaneously create the two courses makes this a very special project indeed.”

Lost Farm at Barnbougle Dunes Update

Lost Farm, the second course at Barnbougle, is on schedule and coming along nicely. 11 of the 20 holes have been planted, the rest in various stages of construction. Of the remaining holes, 3 are par 3’s. The general feeling amongst everyone is that we are on the downhill slide of this one - most of the big holes are behind us. It is winter here in the southern hemisphere but the moderate temperatures associated with this coastal Tasmanian climate allow for seed germination. We should have mature plants on all of the holes by the onset of warmer weather and spring grow-in efforts.

The site is unique, with as much variety in contour and landscape as we have ever worked with. The golf holes reflect this. The scale of the surrounds in combination with the winds, have resulted in some very big golf holes. It will be interesting to see how many acres of managed turf we end up with. Holes measuring close to 100 meters in width are not uncommon.

Opening is scheduled for spring (October) of 2010.
