    Incredible article! Very thorough and well written. Have heard quite a bit about this new course. Supposed to be a real gem. Close to Mountain Lake, which is a Seth Raynor treasure in the middle of Florida.

    Excellent new course in Central Florida. At least it’s a public venue versue Mountain Lake being privite.

    It appears Mosaics marketing investment in these courses will most likely pay off. I suspect some how they have been written up or advertised in every golf magazine in North America (and quite likely others). As a Canadian snow bird spending 6 months in a seniors golf community in Lakeland Florida, I visited Streamsong when it first opened. I found from the club house and vantage points near by, what your pictures show, demnants of a phosphate mine with golf holes between the sand dunes. What I found, that was rather strange, the score card stated all sand is played as a hazard. Would I like to play it? As course rater with 15 years experience, I sure would, but at $200 or so without cart I will stick to my Ron Garl course at Schalamar Creek for $30 with cart.
