Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing announced it has been selected to manage Tennessee National Golf Club (TNGC), situated in a private 1,450 acre residential community of the same name with more than 3 miles of frontage on the 40,000 acre Watts Bar Lake in Loudon.
Located in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains near I-75 and Knoxville, TNGC’s 18 hole Greg Norman Signature Golf Course has 13 holes with water features and stacked sod bunkers, reminiscent of Scottish bunkering. With five holes that play along the water, the design is unique to Tennessee. Its generous landing areas, perfectly manicured fairways and bent grass greens make it the ideal playing experience for all levels of golfers while the 7400 yard back tees will challenge the most accomplished players.
“Tennessee National is Troon’s first club in East Tennessee and an exciting addition to our portfolio,” said Jim McLaughlin, Senior Vice President for Troon Prive’. “We are confident that by combining the club’s amenities with our expertise and management practices, we will contribute positively to the overall experience at TNGC.” Tennessee National joins two other Troon properties in the state, Clarksville Country Club and Five Oaks Golf & Country Club.

Residents of Tennessee National enjoy the combination of living in a gated and peaceful waterfront setting with a premier golf course as its centerpiece. Ownership of the development changed hands
earlier this year and the new owners are moving ahead to add a wellness center, marina and improved golf facilities.
“Troon’s joining the Tennessee National team on the golf side combined with the addition of the marina and a reinvigorated residential building program, will position Tennessee National as the premier golf and waterfront community in East Tennessee,” said David Porter, one of the principals of the new ownership.
