Length 6804

Rating 73.3
Type Public
Nestled in the Lower Hudson Valley, Putnam County Golf Course enjoys a scenic location amid rolling hills yet it’s not too far from the city. Formerly known as Putnam National, the club was originally opened as a private club in 1959, it opened to the public when it was bought by the county in 2004 but it continues to offer the quality and amenities of a private country club. The golf course has front and back nines that are completely different from one another so be prepared to use all the clubs in your bag. Water hazards only come into play on two holes but don’t let that fool you, this course is formidable even for avid golfers. Putnam County Golf Course's final four holes are an especially challenging stretch that will test you with everything from uphill lies to a slew of strategically placed bunkers.

Staff was awesome!

The whole staff was super friendly. Had interactions with at least 6 different staff members and every one of them were super polite and accommodating. Finished in 3 hours and 25 minutes on a Friday morning at 7:57AM. Paired up with 2 nice people. $46 in golf now is worth it. Little wet and the greens were just rolled so wasn’t perfect but I liked the layout and fairways were nice. Shot 79! I’ll definitely be going back!!

Great layout

Came from Ct to play a round with my son who lived in the next country (Westchester). The layout was phenomenal and the greens were fast. Good ingredients for a challenging round. Drainage and condition of the greens made it average.

Course was in great shape and very playable for all levels. Played a bit longer due to recent rain but fairways and greens were in great shape. Hoping to play it again soon.
