The bunker renovation and re-grassing project has been completed at Sequoyah National Golf Club in Cherokee, N.C. Capillary concrete bunkers were installed throughout the course and existing fairways, tees and green surrounds converted to Zeon Zoysia by the Robert Trent Jones II Design team and Southeastern Golf.
The enhancements will allow for year-round premium playing conditions on the Robert Trent Jones II layout.
“We’ve invested in the future of the golf course with these upgrades and we’re very pleased with the finished product,” said Sequoyah National Golf Board chairman Curtis Wildcat. “With these improvements, we believe Sequoyah National is now the finest public mountain courses in the Southeast.”
Opened in 2009, Sequoyah National is located 45 minutes from Asheville. The public course serves as an amenity for guests at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort, four miles away. Set among the oak, fir and flowering valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains, the course plays more than 6,600 yards from the back tees to a par 72 and presents panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscape on every hole.
Sequoyah National is owned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and managed by KemperSports.
