Second time even better

Really enjoyed our Saturday evening round with my family - even better than the first time. Good pace of play, good conditions, and the bunkers were MUCH better conditioned this time. Once again good layout, but second time around made it a bit easier to know where to bail out and where to avoid. Definitely will play here again.

Hills and Slow

Bring your hiking boots because you are going to need them. Overall really nice course, but it’s a workout. I would not even think of walking this course. I was a single playing on a hot and humid day in late afternoon so I expected to sweat. Course looked empty so thought I’d get through pretty quick. One 4-some allowed me to play through but caught another 4-some on the back 9 and basically waited 5-10 minutes for every shot for the last 6 holes. Played it cool as it’s not my job to explain etiquette. Probably should have jumped a hole to pass but I don’t feel like that should be required at a higher end course. Overall I probably won’t be back, which is unfortunate given that holes 1-12 I thoroughly enjoyed even with all the HILLS!!

A gem of a course and a tough test...

Echelon is one of my favorite Atlanta-area golf courses.
The course was in great shape, the tee boxes were the best around, the fairways were tight, and the bent grass greens were fast and very challenging.... probably running at 13-14 on the stimpmeter! My son and I must have lipped out at least 12 putts! Overall, a fabulous course with lots of elevation changes. This is a huge golf course and it's not built for walking...at least for me! They also sport a great bar and grill room. Highly recommended!

The only issue...when we pulled into the club drop-off area in front of the clubhouse and I handed the attendant a tip to pull our clubs from my truck bed to load on the golf cart. Once I pulled away to park, they didn't close the tailgate. Once I moved it slammed down making a huge noise. They never said "Thanks" for the tip... nor did they apologize for not closing the tailgate properly.

Back Nine is Hilly

Very challenging, a couple holes really played long, possibly unfair, but overall great course, interesting contrast from front to back. Enjoyed the round.

Fantastic Experience

Enjoyed a wonderful Friday evening round at Echelon with my daughter. Wonderful hospitality, and a good test of golf. The only complaint might have the been the conditions of the bunkers - typical of a public fee course, some people are just too lazy to properly rake the bunkers, but at the end of the day - somewhat expected. Fairways, tees, and greens were very nicely conditioned, and the views were tremendous. I appreciate the course being right in front of you with no tricked up goofy golf holes. The pin positions were challenging with large greens to receive short and long approach shots. Green complexes were top notch with lots of bail out for longer approaches - definitely plenty of room for errant shots. I don't walk very often, but you would have to be in really good shape to traverse this course. A beautiful piece of land that has been shaped nicely into a challenging and fun layout. Always been a Rees Jones fan - this course is good testament to his pragmatic and challenging architecture. Can't wait to return and hopefully score a bit better.

A great course, but...

Echelon is a big boy layout with a very challenging yet enjoyable routing. Some of the views are incredible, and the staff is extremely polite. I enjoy playing here as it is one of the best tests of golf around the Atlanta area, and rivals many of the very best. The course was in excellent shape except for one area...the bunkers. I experienced two greenside bunker shots where there was no sand at all and had to play shots basically off hard pan. A third bunker shot by a playing partner stayed up on the side of a bunker on Hole 14, and was impossible to play as the loose sand was collapsing making the shot impossible. Bunkers should be a penalty, but not penal. The upkeep of this course is immaculate, however, the bunkers need to be kept consistent, and commensurate with the condition of the rest of the course. For this price, this layout, this experience, I expect better when the occasional errant shot finds its way into the sand.

Really Nice Course

This course was recommended to me & I was really impressed by the quality of the facility & the course. The course was pretty challenging, but fair from the white tees as suggested by the other single player I was paired with. The address is Alpharetta, but it is pretty far North but worth the drive!

Really Nice Spot

Definitely a course to come back & play again. A challenging layout with a few birdie hole opportunities. A hidden gem. The entire course including the green were in great shape. Four or five cart path only holes due to recent rain wasn’t great on a first time player.

Beautiful Course, tough tee shots

Really nice course. Pat 3s and par 5s are difficult so scoring is at a premium here. Lots of sand/OB on most tee shots. There are a lot of bailouts for my fellow right handed faders though. Sand was basically mud around the greens from the early morning sprinklers but dried up nice. The course needs a ranger to speed up play. Tee boxes were hit or miss but the golf course is working on sanding and fixing. Greens and fairways were perfect.

Echelon is a good challenge

Always like Echelon. Fun layout. Long but wide fairways and large greens allow some forgiveness. One of my favorite greater Atlanta tracks for sure. One disappointing thing this time - bunkers were pretty bad. Looked like no maintenance has been done for quite a while. Impacted my score a bit. Otherwise, another enjoyable round at Echelon.
