Sequoyah National Golf Club in North Carolina is to carry out a bunker renovation and regrassing project beginning in March 2020, under the direction of the Robert Trent Jones II firm.


The club says that the renovations will provide better playing conditions year-round on the layout, originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, alongside pro golfer Notah Begay III, in 2009.


“We’re investing in the future of the golf course by upgrading the playing surfaces and bunkers,” said Sequoyah National golf board chairman Curtis Wildcat. “With these improvements, Sequoyah National solidifies its place as one of the best mountain courses in the southeast.”


Capillary Concrete will be installed in the bunkers, while the fairways, tees and green surrounds will be converted to Zeon Zoysia turf.


The course will remain open during the project, with the renovations impacting play on a few holes each day. Work is scheduled for completion in July 2020.
