Great course with some tricks up its sleeve.

This course is magnificent for it's views and variety of hole designs. Carved from the mountain in a very natural way. Most of the holes have lots of elevation changes, and occasionally the pin placements were evil.

Greens were very good, but perhaps too fast in places given the slopes on the green.

If you are a relatively straight hitter, you will not lose too many balls. In two rounds I think I lost 3 balls, maybe just two.

Have played this course once or twice a year for the last 4 years. Highly recommend - just fun if you choose the right tee box.

Played twice in two days. First time in afternoon (1:12 pm) pace of pay was great - 4 hours for a twosome and only waited a few minutes once.

Today a 10:12 tee time and it was packed. My twosome joined with another on the 5th hole and played in 4:30, so not terrible.

Great views. Poor Service!

This mountain course has spectacular views!
We have not played many courses with more picturesque holes.
However we have not had such horrible service in a course. The Pro Shop staff failed to tell us that there was no beverage cart, that the course layout did not return to the club house and so we left the club house with no liquids.
To make matters worse the holes with water coolers had no water! When we asked one of the course workers if they were going to get water, we were told someone was working on it. We never did find any water! It was a 90+ degree day!
We thought we had salvation when we came upon a soda machine but it was only taking exact change! No paper!
We ended 18 holes dehydrated and dejected with the lack of basic golf course service!
Go for the views but pack in my own liquids!

What a view!

This course has amazing mountain views. GPS in the carts with a flyover the hole is a huge help with the steep elevation changes and club selection. Driver isn't utilized very often on this course. Fairways are great, however sand in the cart would probably encourage more divots to be filled. Greens were 8/10 could use some attention from the grounds crews. Will definitely return for another round.

Lots of fun

Played this course while away with the family. Was able to get out early. Luckily, I was teamed up with two nice guys that knew the course well. The course was in great shape and the greens were perfect. The layout is very challenging and even though the GPS works well, local knowledge is a plus. Can't wait to play this course again. Make sure to bring a camera!

Fun layout, bring your A game!

Played here for the 1st time. Conditions of greens, fairways, tees, and bunkers was excellent. Went out as a twosome, finished in just under 4 hours.
Not an overly long course (at least the par 4s and 5s). Lots of trouble, greens have lots of slope, hard to find a flat lie on fairways. Great mountain views and a lot of elevation changes.

Excellent Mountain Course

Great course for playability and definitely a risk/reward course. Excellent mountain views make concentrating on good golf shots a challenge at times. Will be back again.

Mountain Golf at its finest

A smaller group of a large golf trip played Seqouyah for an additional 18 on a Saturday. We called the morning of and they were able to find 2 tee times for us back to back. Weather threatened, but held off.

Absolutely great course. Incredible shape. Beautiful views. Great layout. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Ultimate risk-reward course. A few drivable par 4s. And, unlike the mountain course we had played earlier in the day, if you missed the fairway, you weren't OB. A little bit of rough was forgiving.

Could be a great course

Views and course conditions are fantastic but the service is seriously lacking. Long haired gent loading bags was nice, gave us a few pointers. Staff inside horrible, never smiled, did not feel welcomed. Told us pins were zone 2 but never explained what zone 2 was, signs on tees stated zone 1. No balls on the range had to get my own. No sand in the divot jugs so could not help keep course in good shape. Refreshment gal left at 3 on a 90+ degree day, no coolers in carts and since you do not hit the clubhouse on the turn it would have been nice for someone to inform us. Club house closed when we finished at 5:50 so again no refreshments. Could be a great course if the staff does the little things to complete the experience but it felt like they did not care.

Amazing Golf Course

Sequoyah National is back and in great shape. The views are amazing and the golf course is too. The greens were perfect, fairways, bunker and tee boxes were too. Bring your A Game because this is a demanding course with very little room for error!

Lots of elevation changes and wonderful views

A beautiful course with a fun but challenging design. There are a lot of elevation changes. It really makes you think of what club to play. I had been told that last year the course conditions were pretty bad, but the new management as done a very good job in getting the course in very good shape. There were still some areas were they laid new sod and it was not fully grown in. But in a month or two, it could go from very good to excellent shape.

Was told not to play this course again. Did so anyway. Was pleasantly surprised. Would play it again without hesitation. Course is being repaired and is in good shape. Views are fabulous. Staff is extremely cordial. Would highly recommend this course.

CAUTION!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS COURSE!!!!!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS COURSE. I have been playing golf for over thirty years and this is without a doubt the worst course conditions I have had the dis-pleasure to play, and I have played some real crappers. You could hardly tell the difference between the fairways and the rough, all the greens were in worse then horrible condition to the point of being unable to putt them. The staff for their part was friendly and the manager did offer to send me and my friend vouchers to replay the course, but we declined because we will never go back to this course. On the upside, there are some remarkable views from the course as it is truly a mountain golf course.
Again, don't waste your money, play another course, any course.

Extremel;y poor conditions

The course was in as poor condition as any I have ever seen. Greens, fairways, rough were all pitiful. To the pros credit, he did warn us in advance and said we could get our money refunded and that he would verify the condition to Golfnow.

Come back in 6 months (April, 2015)

This must have been a magnificent course a few years ago. Management changed just last week as Troon Golf ran the course into the ground. More than half the greens are in very poor shape(the others are mostly very good), but the fairways are being renovated and it's like playing on a lawn. We played lift/clean/ and find some grass - and it worked out well enough.

Many of the holes are spectacular both in the views and the design of the hole. Most have very little margin for error, however, especially the par 3s. I am a 20 handicapper and averaged 6 on the par 3s.

The pro shop staff was very apologetic and warned us prior to purchase that the course was "a little rough". Their description however was inadequate - some of the holes on the front nine came close to the "unplayable" line.

This golf course was in the WORST condition of any I've played

Ive never seen a golf course in worse shape then this one! 10/12/14 for the MONEY and time to drive, it was pathetic... Bare ground tee boxes, splotchy and bare fairways, and 60% of the greens were eaten up
It has beautiful scenic views and has the potential to be one of the nicest courses in western N.C. but they have a lot of work to do.
I recommend CALL for course CONDITIONS

EXTREMELY POOR CONDITION, EXTREMELY HIGH PRICE FOR SHAPE

BROUGHT 9 PEOPLE UP FROM SOUTH GA TO PLAY MOUNTAIN COURSES. BOOKED EARLY IN SEPT FOR LEAF SEASON. COURSE IN VERY POOR CONDITION, ASKED FOR RELIEF ON PRICE BUT CHARGED $65 AND WASN'T WORTH 25. SO VERY ASHAMED TO HAVE FRIENDS TRAVEL THAT FAR TO PAY THAT MUCH FOR THAT BAD OF A COURSE. WHEN TO SMOKY MOUNTAIN COUNTRY CLUB AFTER THIS MORNING ROUND AND FOUND IT TO BE VERY GREAT SHAPE.
