Klein's Sneak Peak At Streamsong Black

Though it's still got some growing in to go before opening, Bradley Klein provides a Golfweek.com sneak peak at Gil Hanse and team's Streamsong Black course.

He writes about the grand scale compared to the resort's other two courses and quotes Hanse before offering this assessment:

Based on a recent tour, the Black’s grow-in has come along well, with its Miniverde greens and its Celebration Bermudagrass fairways and tees maturing nicely. The course won’t open until September, by which time the approach roads will be done, as will plantings in the roughs and the modernist, cube-like 12,000-square-foot clubhouse of overlapping steel and glass rectangles.

Streamsong Black includes a full practice range, something the resort badly needs.

There’s also a clever six-hole short course Hanse completed and a Himalayas-style putting course. It all makes for a major enhancement of a resort that already had established itself on the golf map.
