Last time I played course was 5 years ago. I was not disappointed. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape. Finished in just over 4 hours. No GPS but each tee box features a stone-like layout of the hole with suggestions on how best to play hole. I'll be back and won't wait 5 years to play it again!

Second time playing round with my Son. Fairways, greens are in great shape. Short rough makes it easy to find errant shots. Greens very challenging. will definitely play there again.

I've played here many times because it's so close. It's fairly pricy for what you get. For non residents it's almost $70 per round.

Generally the pace of play is very slow regardless of your tee time, your almost always waiting for a group ahead of your to shoot, and I have yet to see the rangers tell anyone they need to increase their pace. They just cream as many people as they can onto the course. Many people lack general golf etiquette, I've had people drive right out onto my fairway while my group is in the middle of teeing off, and take far too long to pick up or choose a club and shoot, with no regard for our group. Also pay attention because balls we'll get very close to you without warning, because the course is tight. And you may as well cover when you hear FORE because it can cine from anywhere.

The conditions are usually very nice and well groomed.

Always start with the positive. Course conditions are much improved since I played here many many years ago. Lots of changes for the better. Greens and fairways are good. Layout on the front nine can be hairy with holes back and forth and balls flying across fairways. Back nine more fun. But my son and I bailed after 4+ hours and 16 holes after literally waiting on every shot. Groups had entire holes open in front of them. No rangers to be found. If they were out there they would have seen guys doing things with golf carts that you'd have to see to believe. Guys yelling to each other across fairways. Not sure how golf course operators can solve the problem of people who think they're playing golf going out and clogging up the course. Guys just out to drink and act like idiots and shoot videos. Don't get me wrong I like a few beers during the round. But I'm there to play not drink. It's too bad because it seems weekend golf on public courses is a joke if you tee off after 9am. And I wish there was an answer for beginners who have ZERO etiquette. Learn how to handle yourself. Know when to pick up. If you have a golf cart USE it. Maybe start with an executive course or par 3. And don't give lessons during the round. Not the place. These days you have to pay premium prices to avoid the nonsense. I'm glad I can play during the week at times. I won't be back at Putnam anytime soon because the management clearly doesn't care what goes on out on the course and it's a shame. I'd pay more than the $66 green fee if I knew it was a solid golf course and not a playground. Maybe after someone crashed a cart or flips it over it will get their attention.
