Awesome Course.....but sand traps BRUTAL

Greens were just aerated this week, so i knew what to expect before the round.

This is such a good golf course, but I was shocked at the condition of the sand traps. It looks like no maintenance had been done on them in at least a week, plus NOBODY raked out their footprints when in the traps. It was like this on EVERY hole.

I’ll give them a pass for now, but for a Normal $80-$100 greens fee, they better be in better shape next time, but if I were a member, I’d be appalled.

Great but......

Course was in great condition but greens had recently been punched and heavily sanded . Did not know that was the course condition otherwise would have waited to play with normal greens.

Pretty much like putting in a bunker

Picture Perfect Setting.

The weather was perfect, the course was fantastic and the staff was friendly. I didn't play great, but rarely do, so that was too be expected. I'd do it again tomorrow if I could.

Great and challenging course

Great layout at Echelon for a challenging round of golf. Course was very wet from an overnight rain and cart paths only made it a long round getting to our balls, but course was in great shape. People were very friendly and restaurant had good food. Highly recommend for an above average golfer!

Beautiful and Tough Course

This course is beautiful and well maintained. I only gave 4 stars because all of the bunkers were mostly wet packed sand and it has not rained for several days. They are just ignoring them right now it seems. I seemed to have spent a good bit of time in them as there are quite a few on the course. :-) It is a very challenging course demanding length and accuracy. The rough is thick so it pays to stay on the short stuff. I enjoyed the round and will definitely go back.

Fun round of golf

Very tough layout that plays longer than the yardage on the card. Conditions both fairways and greens was excellent. Some blind approaches to greens, especially on the very hilly back nine . Good shots are rewarded throughout.

Great Track!

Course was in wonderful condition. Lots of un-repaired ball marks on greens, though. Challenging layout with some long holes and a lot of elevation, but beautiful and very fair. I'll definitely be back!!

Excellent course, with one caveat...

Played Echelon for the first time on July 21. Nice clubhouse, and they give you a small bag of range balls as a part of the greens fee. Course was in immaculate condition- essentially what you would expect of one of the nicer country clubs in the area. The greens rolled extremely true and couldn't have looked better. Same with the fairways. Some of the tee boxes were being aerated while we played, but no big deal. It was very hot, but the drink cart came around every few holes. I will say that $5 for a Miller Lite is a bit excessive though!

Anyway, the only complaint I have and the only reason I don't give the course 5 stars (I'd give it 4.5 if I could) is that the back nine is so markedly different from the front, and not exactly in a good way. Basically, all but one or two holes on the back are either virtually straight uphill or straight downhill. Frankly it's kind of exhausting. And it's not necessarily unfair or anything, it's just so different from the front nine, which is much flatter & more "traditional". Having to essentially guess distances on almost every shot because of the extreme elevation changes is a bit annoying. And my only other issue was that even as a fairly long hitter, playing from the blue tees, not one of the four par 5's was reachable in 2- would have been fun to have that option at least once.

With that said, the course is fun, well-maintained, and challenging but very fair. And for around $70, it's by far one of the best values in the area. Would gladly play Echelon again anytime.
