I just played a Troon Managed course here in NC and I was very disappointed. Each year some buddies and I take a late summer, early fall golf trip to the NC/TN mountains. Last week our trip took us to Maggie Valley CC, Smokey Mountain CC, Sevierville GC, and Sequoyah National GC (the Troon Managed Venue). We spent the first three days of the trip at MVCC, SMCC, and SGC all of which were in fantastic condition. We were all looking forward to our final two days at Sequoyah National and it was a total disappointment. It has the potential to be an amazing course, the layout and the views of the Smokey Mountains are awesome! The service and condition were where they fell short. The pro shop attendant showed up to the course 5 mins before our 8:00 starting times and we were told that we didn't have time to warm-up on the range because they were busy and it would back the course up if we started late. We did have a bit of time on the horrendous conditioned putting green waiting for the employees to show up, which we commented on but, were assured that the greens on the course were in "awesome" condition. At first glance the course was great, we teed off from the very elevated first tee box down into a valley where the hole doglegged to the right. Once we reached the fairway; out of sight of the clubhouse and road the fairways were all but bare and their "awesome" greens were as bad or worse than the putting green! To make things even better there had been a landslide on the second hole which had destroyed the green and the hole was closed (a little detail they forgot to mention). Most of our group have low to mid- single digit handicaps so we typically play from the back tees but, once we got to the third hole the two longest sets of tees were no longer mowed and hadn't been for a while. To make a long story short-er we had planned on playing 36 holes per day the last two days of our trip and left disappointed after 18 on Thursday. We managed to finish out our trip at Maggie Valley so it was not all that bad. I hope this is an isolated incident for Troon and it sounds like it is but, it is such a same for such a beautiful landscape to have such poor condition and service.
