"Our mission at Streamsong is to redefine what guests, particularly golfers
from all over the world, should expect from a luxury resort," said Richard
Mogensen, Streamsong's general manager. "With the opening of the Lodge, our
guests can now experience this incredible place in its entirety. From a
breathtaking natural environment to luxurious accommodations, fantastic dining
and incomparable guest service, Streamsong will no doubt emerge as one of the
most unique destinations in the United States and the world."

At the resort, guests can experience Streamsong Red, designed by Bill Coore
and Ben Crenshaw, and Streamsong Blue, designed by Renaissance Golf Design
(Tom Doak), which are known as "must plays" among serious golfers. In their
first year of operation, Streamsong Red and Blue topped GOLF magazine's list
of the "Best New Courses You Can Play" and were recently ranked as the 12^th
and 14^th best resort courses in the United States by Golfweek.com, among
other accolades.

Streamsong guests can also take guided excursions on the property's prolific
bass fishing lakes; explore bird-watching and wildlife along a tranquil nature
trail; test their aim at the resort's sporting clays facility; indulge in
European spa treatments; and take a dip in the lakeside infinity pool.

At the Lodge's three restaurants, guests can enjoy a culinary journey with
dishes to tempt every palate. They can savor contemporary Italian cuisine like
osso buco, stone oven-roasted duck breast and chicken involtini at
SottoTerra^TM; indulge in traditional Floridian comfort foods like
Apalachicola oysters, conch chowder and buttermilk fried chicken at
P[2]O[5]^TM; or sample pub-style small plates including sriracha glazed
chicken skewers, warm blue cheese potato chips and buffalo pork rinds at
Fragmentary Blue^TM.

Expert in hosting small executive gatherings, larger groups and private
special events, the resort includes more than 18,000 square feet of flexible
meeting space as well as unique settings like a rooftop meeting room and
terrace, covered breezeway and 40,000 square feet of distinctive outdoor
venues for memorable events.

Award-winning architect Alberto Alfonso designed Streamsong's Lodge to
showcase and celebrate the property's natural environment. Guestrooms and
suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass and offer stunning views of the
property's lakes and surroundings. AcquaPietra^TM, a 7,000-square-foot
grotto-style spa with seven unique pool experiences and nine treatment rooms,
is a metaphor for the prehistoric seas that once covered the region.
Fragmentary Blue, the Lodge's rooftop lounge, provides the perfect spot for
incomparable sunrise and sunset viewing and stargazing.

The property's golf Clubhouse – which opened in January 2013 and is also
designed by Alfonso Architects – features banquet space with sweeping water
views, 12 guestrooms, Restaurant Fifty-Nine^TM - a steak and seafood-themed
restaurant, and a bar, lounge, and golf shop.

Located between Orlando and Tampa,  Streamsong is convenient to two
international airports and six regional airports accommodating private
aircraft. To learn more about the resort or book a reservation, visit
