Course for golfers from mid-west

Course reminded me of ones in Smoky Mountain areas. For golfers from lower Michigan regions (lived there for 20 years), this is the course to play.

Great golf course close to home...

Echelon is a hidden gem close to my home. The course is in great shape and the greens are firm this time of year. This course is long... not for the faint of heart. Love the challenging layout. The bar and restaurant are also very good. Only complaint is that we did not see a beverage cart on the course and we teed off at 2:30 pm!

Great course - great restaurant

I have played here a dozed time since they opened but have not played in the past couple of years. Course is in great shape (Aerating greens but they told us ahead of time and price was nicely reduced to compensate). Pace of play was decent - 4.25 hours for a weekend afternoon round. Had an odd encounter with a marshal mid-way through the back 9 who told us we needed to pick up play despite the fact that we were waiting for another group to clear the green at the same time he was speaking to us :-)

As for the food/drink....restaurant is awesome - selection is excellent and food is well beyond what you expect at a golf course...I am guessing the "cook" has some experience outside of fast food :-) Service was prompt and we were able to get in and out in 20 minutes before our round.

On the course the drink/snack cart made it around our group at least 6 times during our round and although she didn't carry liquor on board she swung by the bar twice for us and delivered ice cold cocktails promptly!

Highly recommend the trip up to play here....

Echelon is great

Course was in great shape. The greens had been aeriated but were still puttable. Very enjoyable round of golf. Played in less than 4 hours and started at noon. This course is not really for high handicappers, you should be able to hit the ball at least 150 yards min otherwise it will not be enjoyable.

Nice tee box's and fairways but sanded greens

The course was very well kept with nice tee boxes and fairways. The greens were aerated and sanded. I would like to play when not aerated, but I still enjoyed the course. Only problem was driving range and putting green were closed.

They need a marshall!

First the good. This course is really pretty and extremely challenging. We picked a bad day to come out because the greens had just been punched but all in all the course is really nice. That's the good.

The not so good... The pace of play is awful. This is my second time out there as I thought the first time it was slow was just a bad day. We actually had to quit early because the course was so backed up with slow players. Front nine was fine and not too slow but some how the entire back nine was backed up. They need a Marshall to regulate play. I hate leaving this review because I feel this course is SO close to being awesome but slow play will keep people away. Nobody has time for a 5 hour round!
