Great Layout Save For....

Have played here before when the course conditions were ideal. Today the greens were in maintenance mode, very hairy and slow, which I get as greens have to be aerated throughout the year. Unfortunately, some of the greens had zero grass in many spots with nothing but a sandy base in the line of some putts. The fairways were in great shape and the tee boxes must have had recent treatment with some form of pesticide (hopefully not) or fertilizer application because they smelled awful akin to the smell of cow manure. I actually considered quitting as I started to taste the smell. To that end, I get that maintenance is required and overall, Echelon is a great layout ready to test the best of golfers. Will probably wait until mid to late fall to play again when not in maintenance mode and I would, without hesitation, recommend Echelon as a must play.

Lost their greens

Website said the greens were previously aerated but would be back to normal on Tuesday 9/11. Greens were still completely unplayable. Normally one of the best courses in Atlanta.

One of the best courses I've played in Atlanta

Overall, my experience was great. The course was in great shape, except the greens had recently been punched and then sanded, so they were bumpy and slow. This was really the only issue with the course, which is typical after this process.

The layout is good. The course is long and challenging with some beautiful elevation changes and views.

Greens Aerated But Course Great

This is a tough course. The greens were pretty rough today having just been Aerated, but otherwise the course is in great condition. It is a hard course, so be prepared!

Fun but challenging

Recently-Punched greens and threatening thunderstorms did not mar the experience. Tough layout but wide fairways and large greens.

Fun experience but wouldn’t want to play here too often.

Outside staff seemed scarce but wasn’t very important in the big picture. New clubhouse is attractive and very functional.

Hidden gem

Echelon is a great course. It was in excellent condition. The course is a challenge but the fun kind. Some of the elevated tee shots are a blast which means a couple coming back up hill can be beasts. Greens, tee boxes and fairways were all on point. Worth every penny. Food options in the new clubhouse are great too. I’ll be back.
