The golf course at Sequoyah is as difficult to master as it is verdant and beautiful, with hilly terrain and small, sloping greens to challenge the most skilled golfer. With no parallel fairways and no two holes alike, Sequoyah is truly a joy to experience. The course is a challenging par 70 for men and par 72 for women, with one of the highest slope/yardage ratios of any layout in California. Rolling hills, sloping fairways and lightning fast greens demand the best of every golfer while providing sweeping vistas and a luxurious evergreen backdrop.
Sequoyah is never crowded. Because of a limited number of proprietary memberships, tee times are available without reservations at almost any time. The club averages fewer than five days closure per year due to rainfall.
The Oakland Tribune said, “The strange feeling hits you almost immediately when you step to the first tee at Sequoyah Country Club. Is this Oakland? Well, it is the Oakland hills, but at Sequoyah it’s easy to drift away to another place and another time . . . But if your putter goes wacky, Sequoyah will chew you up and spit you out. Then, and only then, would you feel you’re in Oakland.”
