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.

Decent for a public course

Conditions were super dry. Edges of some fairways were beat up and just dirt. Decent layout and some challenging holes. Small driving range but ok to warm up just the irons. Friendly and helpful staff. Great bar and restaurant for before and after round. Saw the cart girl almost every other hole which was great!

6/21/2022 Greens

Greens are currently awful. They have sanded the green and made it very hard and difficult to read the putts.

Young ranger couldnt speed up the pace of play. Golf course over booked players.

The ranger was 15 years old nobody took him seriously, he drove around once. The golf shop allowed to many people to book. The slowest round of Saturday golf Ive ever played in my life. Went home after hole 15 - terrible experience…
