Streamsong® Resort Celebrates Official Grand Opening
Streamsong® Resort’s golf operations celebrated their official Grand Opening on Saturday, January 26, with more than 200 invited guests joining the festivities.
A highlight of the grand opening was a “conversation” with the architects—two-time Masters Champion Ben Crenshaw, his partner Bill Coore, and Tom Doak—who shared stories about their inspiration and experiences designing and constructing Streamsong’s two courses, Streamsong® Red (Coore & Crenshaw) and Streamsong® Blue (Doak). The session was moderated by Damon Hack of The Golf Channel.
Rich Mack, Mosaic Executive Vice President and General Counsel, and Tom Sunnarborg, Vice President Land Development and Management, also spoke and provided the audience with history and observations about Mosaic’s vision for the Streamsong® Resort project.
“Streamsong is a powerful site, and Mosaic is excited to introduce this venue to the world’s golf community as a world-class model for economic and environmental sustainability,” said Mack. “We are honored by the reception Streamsong has received. With the opening of the main lodge and other nature-based amenities later this year, we will have created more than 200 permanent jobs and a very unexpected, but special golf, conference and luxury resort destination.”
In addition to the two golf courses, which are already receiving international acclaim, the resort Clubhouse, designed by Alfonso Architects of Tampa, features 12 guest rooms (designed to accommodate 16 guests); 4,500 square-feet of meeting space, a three-meal restaurant with private dining, lounge and golf shop.
Streamsong’s Main Lodge, opening in fall 2013, will include 216 luxury guest rooms, a conference center, full-service spa, lakeside pool, casual and fine dining, hiking and birding trails, tennis, guided bass fishing and a sporting clays range.
KemperSports is responsible for management of Streamsong’s golf operations, with Scott Wilson serving as Director of Golf. Interstate Hotels & Resorts has overall management responsibility for the resort, with Mike Speicher serving as General Manager.
