For Streamsong Red, I had originally played it in benign conditions and with a dedicated caddie. Although I had to handicap in my last two holes due to the rain-out, I was very pleased to finish with a strong 79. Upon my return, I felt little stress and was ready to improve upon that. However, I quickly learned that my 2019 round was far better than I remember it as the Red Course proceeded to destroy me. In my worst round of 2022, Coore/Crenshaw's lakes and sand traps proved too much for me as I fell into mistake after mistake, and then putted horribly to boot.
The other side of the coin, however, was my second attempt at Streamsong Black. In my first visit I did not know it was a par 73 and played the shorter combo tees. However, after a horrible front nine, my attempt at a comeback fell short, finishing with my most hated score, 80. This time around, I decided to play further back at the Black tees, and remembered better where I could safely miss of the tee. Thus, I flipped the script, playing a much better front nine and then, although sadly fading slightly at the end, finishing with a triumphant 79.
Either way, both golf courses have been updated.
