The new clubhouse is OPEN!

I think you’ll enjoy the horse country look to the clubhouse and the cart barn. The food offerings are typical club fare. Visit for tee times, tournaments, etc.

New Clubhouse set to open in April

As with any construction project, weather and inspections seem to be the biggest variables. As of this writing, it looks like the new clubhouse will open in April 2017. I know that deliveries of merchandise, retail display racks, etc. have already begun. In fact, I got a nice new Callaway shirt for 30% off, so stop by the clubhouse trailer and buy one.

New Construction on Traditions Court, Lot 87

I got the chance to meet builder John Hanna on the site of this beautiful home with commanding golf views both front and back.  The interior vaulted ceilings and coffered ceilings are going to be spectacular once they are finished. The pool house with tiki bar is going to be really neat to see once it’s finished.  This home is on the 10th golf hole of Echelon, so it’s in a great location. In addition, the front of the home has views across King / Mountain Road to the 2nd Nine of the golf course.


One of the toughest things to frame in a house are vaults. This one, over the entry foyer and beautiful spiral staircase, is a beauty.

New Clubhouse and Cart Barn well under way.

Clubhouse Sept 2016The new cart barn and clubhouse are well under way now at Echelon.  As you can see, the Alpharetta horse country motif is strong in the design of Cart Barn Sept 2016these facilities.  The clubhouse grille is going to be a great place to sit and heckle your buddies as they put out on the 18th green, just below the terrace.

The cart barn looks like a barn.  Ingenious.  I can’t wait for everything to be open and staffed so I can use Echelon for one of my celebrity golf tournament fundraisers.  It’s going to be fun!



New Clubhouse and Cart Barn Started

The cart storage house is designed to fit perfectly into the Alpharetta horse country, with a Kentucky-style “barn” complete with cupolas.

Founders Lake (VIDEO)

This is a great fishing lake right in the middle of golf holes #3, #4 and #6.  The lakeside cabin adds charm and a place to relax in this peaceful setting.

Clubhouse Rumors for 2016 ??

I’m hearing that plans are started to begin clubhouse construction in early 2016.  I stopped by the temporary clubhouse and talked to a few folks there, and it does seem that some level of action has started in this regard.

Have you seen Founders Lake Swamp (VIDEO)

I bet you haven’t.  If you go down to the lakeside cabin, and then walk to the opposite side and down the hill, you’ll see a beautiful little wetlands area with blue herons, ducks and geese.  This is a great place to sit down, relax and enjoy nature.  Here’s a quick video.
