How will Cherokee affect you?

Sequoyah National. On every hole, something historic awaits.

Your Sequoyah National Golf Club experience begins with a Robert Trent Jones II design and dramatic mountain beauty. Look closer, and you’ll discover a challenging layout literally engraved with Cherokee history. And as you rattle home your final putt on the 18th, don’t forget to take one last look at what the Cherokee have held sacred for 11,000 years plus: raw, pristine nature.

Created by the great buzzard’s wings. Gently reshaped by Jones II.

“Of the earth… for the spirit,” is Jones II’s guiding golf course design principle. Immediately, you’ll see he’s succeeded in his goal. Sequoyah National provides a fun, intriguing challenge whether you’re a scratch handicap or just getting started. Here, it’s easy to see the ancient Cherokee creation story made manifest: mountains formed by the flaps of the great buzzard’s wings, dripping with mud from the earth below. With 6,057 yards of groomed bentgrass greens and bluegrass fairways left to go, you can’t wait to challenge Golf Magazine’s #2 “Best New Course You Can Play” of 2009. It’s going to be a good day. Call for tee times.
