Streamsong Embarks on Innovative Greens Enhancement Project on Streamsong Blue and Streamsong Red
Effective April 1, 2020 Streamsong begins a pioneering re-grassing project using the revolutionary new ultradwarf bermudagrass, known as Mach 1 on Tom Doak’s Streamsong Blue and Coore & Crenshaw’s Streamsong Red. Mach 1 has been recognized as one of the cleanest and purest turfs in the industry with a super fine texture and smoothness that creates the highest quality putting surface in the game today. This bold and innovative endeavor and will make Streamsong the first golf destination in the world to offer Mach 1 on an 18-hole layout. Mach 1 is a genetically strong, high-end performing turfgrass that is both heat and drought tolerant, which is conducive to Florida’s seasonality along with the Resort’s sustainability commitment.
“Since opening, our goal has been to provide a pure golf experience with firm and fast conditions that rival the very best golf destinations in the world,” said Rusty Mercer, director of agronomy at Streamsong Resort”. This re-grassing project is a natural progression for the maturity and environmental conditions of our sand-based courses. We have evaluated the latest technology of turfgrass in the industry and we are very impressed by the high-quality performance of Mach 1 at Streamsong. We look forward to showcasing this new turfgrass on Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue greens later this year.”
Streamsong Blue and Streamsong Red are anticipated to debut their new Mach 1 greens in October 2020. Until then, guests can experience Gil Hanse’s Streamsong Black – Golf Digest’s 2018 ‘Best New Course in North America’ – along with the two-acre, 18-hole putting green The Gauntlet as well as the Roundabout, the Resort’s free-flowing practice area.
