The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and Governor Beverly Perdue celebrated the opening of a new golf course Monday. The designer course will allow the tribe to expand tourist offerings around its Smoky Mountains reservations.
The Sequoyah National Golf Club was built to a layout created by designer Robert Trent Jones, II to take advantage of mountain vistas on every hole.
Greens fees are $85 weekdays and $110 on weekends.
The Cherokees opened Harrah's casino, 11 years ago and use half the profits to run the tribal government and half for payments to tribal members.
