Streamsong Golf Resort- Are you missing out?

Having been to Streamsong twice in the last year I thought I should reflect and gives those planning a trip or considering a trip to Streamsong an idea of what to expect.

What is Streamsong?

Streamsong is a luxury golf resort located in the middle of no where in Florida. When I say middle of no where, I mean it. Streamsong is located in Bowling Green, Florida (good luck guessing where that is). All you need to know is it isn’t too far from either the Tampa or Orlando airports.

Streamsong is home to 3 golf courses, 4 restaurants, and many more activities. You will undoubtedly spend most of your time golfing but they also have fishing, archery, a spa and more. You will be spending all your time at the resort because the closest restaurant outside of the resort is at least 30 minutes away.

The Golf at Streamsong Golf Resort

Just a few notes on the overall golf experience before jumping into each course. We played in the summer months and were able to ride in a cart (thank God because Florida gets hot!). If you ride in a cart you are required to have a group Forecaddie which yes costs more but on some of these course much much needed. The customer service was top notch from the minute your pull into the resort or course.

Streamsong Black

My personal favorite is the Black course. Having its own clubhouse, restaurant, driving range the black still has that Streamsong feel but in its own world. The course it self is challenging yet fun. The undulations are just insane and make for some crazy shots. A caddie is almost required to play this course especially when it comes to their signature 8th hole. The green is a huge (I mean HUGE) bowl with 7-10 foot walls on every side so you can’t even see the pin from your approach shots. It is such a different course than any other you will play in your life. Highly recommend! This is truly a one of kind golf experience.

Streamsong Red and Streamsong blue

Streamsong Red and Blue share many similarities and this is why I have included them together. If you have time to play only one of these courses you really can’t go wrong. These are beautifully designed and such different courses compared to other Florida courses. They share the same range, clubhouse, and have similar designs. Blue just has a great initial tee shot. You are what seems to be the highest point on the property hitting 40 feet down on to the fairway. For Florida golf this is massive elevation and a pretty cool starting point. With recent upgrades to new Mach 1 greens these courses are no doubt top in the state.

The roundabout and Gauntlet

These are 2 great activities for after your round or the afternoon you arrive to Streamsong. The roundabout is a par 3 course located near Streamsong Black. Holes range from 60-140 yards. This is a perfect place to grab 2 clubs, a few beers, and just enjoy a fun afternoon with your group. If you want to scale it back even further they have the Gauntlet, a 18 holes putting course. Located right outside the restaurant/bar at the Black course a massive putting green awaits. With a stand to hold your drink on each tee shot, grab a beer, get your putter, and have fun. This is located right behind the 18th green so make sure to watch and heckle incoming golfers as they finish their round.

Lodging and Dining

Like I said before the resort is in the middle of no where. The food, down time and more will all be spent at the resort. The resort and rooms itself is spacious, clean, and exactly what you would expect from one of Florida’s top golf destinations. The options for food are great with many casual options. I won’t spend too much time here since I like to focus on the golf portion. All I can really say is the resort and dining met our expectations for a premier golf resort.

Is Streamsong worth it?

Yes! It is truly a unique golfing experience. The courses are beautiful, challenging, and just downright fun to play. If you only have time for 2 course I highly suggest the Black and then either Red or Blue. Make sure to get a caddie, they are worth every penny here. This is such a great unique Florida trip that I highly recommend, 10/10.

Dollar Driver Club- Is It Worth It?

This is not a paid post, I am not an employee of Dollar Driver Club, I am just a paying customer that started the service last year. The only thing I ask is if you decide to subscribe to Dollar Driver Club use the following link that gives me a small referral bonus ($5 off coupon for every new signup using my link HERE)

What is Dollar Driver Club?

If you are reading this you probably have some idea of what dollar driver club is. If not here is a brief background on what it is and my personal experience. Essentially dollar driver club is an alternative way to purchase a new driver. Personally a driver is that shiny new toy I always want. I need the newest technology as it comes out because I most definitely could use the extra few yards and forgiveness.

Broken down there are 3 main aspects of Dollar Driver Club to know.

  1. You pay $1 a day for this subscription or $360 a year.
  2. Choose up to 3 drivers to use throughout that subscription year.
  3. Use your subscription fee to purchase a driver if you fall in love with the one you are using.

Con’s

We will start with the cons of Dollar Driver Club because honestly, they’re aren’t too many. The biggest con I see is that it is a subscription service so if you quit playing golf (which is just outrageous) you need to make sure to cancel this subscription. You can’t sell your subscription but you can use your subscription fee towards the purchase of a driver through Dollar Driver Club.

Also, you have a limited amount of drivers, 3, to use a year without the ability to test them in person prior to your decision. For me this isn’t a huge deal but some golfers like the take a few swings in a hitting bay before committing.

Finally, the last con is the cost, $360 a year is not cheap. If you are like me and purchase new drivers often this isn’t a high cost. However, if you are looking for the best drivers under a certain budget an older model driver or used driver would probably work better.

Pro’s

There are quite a few pro’s when it comes to Dollar Drive Club. The most obvious being you always have the newest driver on the market.

Their selection of drivers is great. Name any of the newest drivers on the market… they have it. The toughest choice for me was not joining Dollar Driver Club or not, it was what driver do I want to use first? Part of the reason you are joining this club is to use the newest and best drivers on the market and they deliver in this area.

Customer service is top notch. There is a few things that stood out to me and probably the most impressive was the customer service. I am a very low maintenance customer so having the driver ship on time. Add on top of that they include a personalized message, personalized ball marker and a few other small golf items. That to me is all I need. My brother, who is a little more high maintenance, decided to subscribe as well. He did not like his initial driver choice and decided to use one of his exchanges. When he put in his exchange request a representative from Dollar Driver Club called him to discuss his swing, tendencies, what he is looking for in a driver and basically gave him a club fitting over the phone. Not only was everything handled on time and professionally but going above and beyond to help a customer choose a club is great customer service to me.

You can buy your driver at any point of time. This may end up being the route I take. My first driver from my subscription is the Cobra King Speedzone. I have used it ever since I started the subscription and have fallen in love with it. Since I have paid the annual $360 fee I can use that to the purchase price of this driver. This essentially allows you to try, for an extended period of time, the top drivers on the market.

The Driver comes right to your door. To me, this is a huge pro. For some reason I just can not hit clubs to save my life inside hitting bays at popular golf stores. This was a way for me to try out the newest and best drivers over an extended period of time without having to leave my house to get the club. Also, with COVID not everyone wants to go visit a store or touch clubs that have been used. This is a way to get that new driver and try it out on your own.

Is it worth it?

YES. This is the most important question on the article and the answer is a resounding yes. If you are looking into getting a new driver and plan to spend some money to do so there is no reason not to use Dollar Drive Club. Their selection, service, and ease of use makes it a great option for us golfers.
