The only course that envelops you in Cherokee history.
But today, you intend to make some of your own. The conditions are idyllic: a bare, bright, blue sky and a forgivign sun.
You take a moment to acknowledge this vacation is special. Harrah’s® Cherokee Casino Resort has been kind and you’re feeling good. It’s as if the same Smokies the Cherokees believe were created by the flaps of the Great Buzzard’s wings, dripping with mud from the earth below, stand before you, pleading, “You can’t miss.”
Unobstructed views of the Great Smoky Mountains surround you. It’s just you, the ball, and the hole.
As you walk to the tee, you take a deep breath. It’s the first hole at Sequoyah National Golf Club. A tree-lined, five hundred thirty-nine yard, par 5. You have 6,517 yards of groomed bentgrass greens and bluegrass fairways in front of you–eighteen exciting puzzles still to solve.
Sequoyah National was designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones II.
His architectural signature is building courses sensitive to their particular environment, “of the earth…for the spirit.” It means each hole feels like it’s been there since the dawn of time.
Lined with oak and fir trees and interlaced with flowered valleys, the course feels like it was designed for you.
Or, your occasional slice, anyway. Today, it’s more of a gentle fade, and you feel like you could re-create it with your eyes closed.
Intriguing plaques on each tee offer bits of Cherokee legends, each silently noting that your round is as hot as the gentle breeze is cool. The time you spent on the immaculate driving range and putting green before the round is paying off.
Today feels effortless.
