Echelon Golf Club
Had a great time playing Echelon today, the course is in truly outstanding condition. Fairways are in excellent shape and the greens are fairly paced, smooth and true. I have played a large number of public and private courses and almost all of the high-end layouts in the Atlanta area. I would say hands down, this challenging Rees Jones design probably has the best consecutive 9 holes of golf (front 9) in the area. The multiple tee boxes offer sufficient flexibility and playability to challenge any player’s skill level.

One of my favorites yet
Loved everything about this course. Greens were in excellent shape and the course was challenging. As someone new to the game, I probably bit off more than I could chew, but it was worth it. Great scenery, rolling terrain, personable staff. Will be back.

Great track, pricey for this area
Love this course, except the uphill par 5 on the back. Premium course with a premium price. It's a treat to play from time to time. If the price was better, I'd play it more often.

Challenging as always
Greens are in great condition. Everything about the course of play was great! Love the challenges Echelon has to offer.

Tough, intimidating and very undulating course that feels like you are playing a mountain course.
This course is in tremendous shape and very tough. It demands good shots and the four par 5's are great holes with number 11 being very tough and the 18th hole has to be one of the toughest finish around. There is a great selection of holes with different length par 4's and usage of the hilly terrain. The greens are in great shape and good speed about 11' on the stimp. I am a 3.4 handicap and shot 76 with two doubles and two birdies.

Very challenging course with a lot of vertical change and uneven fairway lies. Very well kept, nice facility, but obviously fell victim to the housing crunch. I would be willing to play it again.

Expensive but nice........
This course is not for the faint of heart! Lot's of elevation makes for a challenging round. Most greens are elevated or below the cart path; be prepared for lot's of walking up and down!! Greens were in GREAT shape!! Had a blast, but my wallet paid the price! I would definitely go again when someone else pays............
PS. Don't expect nice clubhouse, a portable trailer is the best you get!

Very nice course , but no clubhouse , no cart girls, no starter ,no rangers
This day started out badly by me receiving an email confirmation from Echelon (not GolfNow) stating that my balance due at course was 20.00 ...when I arrived I was told that was the members fee and it was sent to me by mistake. Actual balance was 80.00.
I was a single at 10:20 and was supposed to be paired up with another 3 some ...I was told by the golf shop they checked in and the starter would pair us up , I arrived at the tee 15 min early but found no starter , the 10:10 went off and I went back to pro shop , who said the starter was supposed to be at the tee ....I went back to 1st Tee and found the 10:30 4 -some ...So I went alone ...no starter ....no snack-beverage cart on the course , no clubhouse, no food and beverage.... NO STAFF except 1 guy in a temporary shack collecting money for T-Times ....what a shame
