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.

Avoiding the virus
Overall it was a good round. The course is following all the precautions for the COVID-19 virus that's impacting our world. I didn't have to touch anything. Paid before hand, got my receipt from the printer that stood about 10 feet from the guy behind the glass. Only 1 unrelated person per cart. I walked. Just me and my friend. Course was in good shape. Greens rolled fast, like they always do here. Probably the most difficult part is the speedy greens. I'd definitely recommend playing here at least once. I think this was my third trip.
This is a good course for everyone. It has some very challenging holes and some easy ones. It requires different clubs to be used and has different looks from different tees. Staff is very friendly.
Every time slot is available on golf now , we show up 1245 time slot 20-24 guys there telling starter who ho out.. not starters fault .. started at 1245 didn’t finish round because of darkness.. F-in joke
I really like this course. From both the white and blue tees it is a great challenge. Greens are usually very good. Traps need a little work. The pace of play and the quality of golf is not so hot.
Only course I’ve been to where you can’t bring a small cooler or anything on course for drinking or eating
Pretty bad when no one is on course selling anything
They tell you it’s because of catering but it’s hot out there and some people don’t eat junk
Otherwise Staff were Great but that’s not their fault that management wants to make money on petty things
One of the best courses around
Course is in fantastic shape. The people here are always friendly. The carts are brand new with gps. Difficult course with tricky greens but a wonderful experience.
Putnam County Golf Course
Every thing was great except they put us behind 2 separate ladies two somes who weren’t very good golfers, instead of sending them out as a four some. Very slow round.
Greens rolled beautifully, but they have so many undulations on them, Every hole seemed like a tournament pin placement, but there did not seem to be any flat space to put a flag. Gorgeous day. Course is beautiful. Great value.
Bad pace of play
Recently the pace of play has been terrible. It’s taken over 4 hours to play round and that’s not great
