Putnam County Golf Course
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.

The course is nothing at 1st that jumps out at you. Straight rectangle holes tree lined on either side. Having said that the course makes the most of its landscape and like any course you need to hit straight and pick your landing area. The greens are very good with lots of undulations. Bunkers guard the greens in all the right spots.
Off the whites a mid handicapper will have a decent round. Back tees are a little more difficult.
Perfect for beginners
This is my fourth time at Putnam and it gets better each time I come. The course is wide open which is great if you’re a beginner like myself. Lost balls get expensive after a while, but that’s because of my nasty slice. I’ll definitely come back.
Always in great shape
Great bang for your buck considering the condition the course is kept in.
Golf for Snails
It's too slow in the afternoon. Waiting on two groups on the tee by the tenth hole. 5 1/2 hours is too slow and no rangers at all pushing people along. I don't think I've ever heard "fore" so many times in a single round.
decent pace of play for a Monday. Kept within C 19 rules and singles in carts. treated well and had cart girl out there also, very nice on a weekday. Course in good condition. Greens are always the toughest part of this course but in great shape. No matter your handicap you will enjoy this.
Nice course for the money
Easy course to get an online tee time. No sign of marshal during our play. Three some in front of us were playing two balls each the entire time. Nice course for the money. Course is in good shape.
Nice layout of course
Putnam golf course was in great shape. The greens and sand traps were in excellent shape too. I would definitely recommend playing this course and will be out their again soon
