Putnam County Golf Course
Very Nice Golf Course
This is a very nice course and will be even better when the current construction project is completed. I was able to play on a weekday thru a great Hot Deal of 20 bucks. It is now the off season with cool/colder weather so it was priced accordingly.
Staff is super friendly and that makes a difference in deciding to return and play again

Nice course. Two different nines.
Played on Veterans day. Generous fairways....tough greens. The front 9 holes are very close together. Errant balls create issues with slow play. Nothing can be done about this...just a product of the acreage. Back nine is more spread out with a greater variety of holes. Course is very well maintained. Greens have a lot of contour and are fast. Overall, a classic Mitchell course...very enjoyable.

Great course for value. Well kept.
Solid course. Lots of elevation change. In great shape and had decent pace of play with 9:08 tee time on a Saturday morning. Very scenic and a great choice for those coming from Southern Westchester.

cold and windy weather, lots of leaves making it difficult to locate balls. sand traps like the parking lot (under construction with no spaces for cars!) and impossible to hit out of. 15th green pin location impossible!! i executed a perfect approach to 15 ft below hole. putt stopped right next to hole and proceeded to roll 75 ft down hill and off green.. next putt, same result.. IMPOSSIBLE pin location

Great day for Golf
It was a cold day but the course was excellent, the greens were maintained well. The course is currently having construction done so there were a lot of loud noise around certain holes. But as soon as you got around that the course was little less than perfect. At the 7th hole, there was a lot of leaves in the fairway and a grounds keeper came immediately and corrected the situation picking up all the leaves. The pace of play was well maintained and there was very little need for the ranger to be out to push the pace. The bartender and staff were very friendly with a warm smile on a cold day. I would recommend this course to anyone. This will be my home course from now on, making the longer drive that much more necessary.

Very Challenging - Be Patient
This is a very challenging course for the recreational golfer. Many par 4s are well over 400 yds. Having played on October 27, 2013, the leaves were down and hiding golf balls. The greens were very fast and hard. A missed uphill putt would return back to you (or worse). All in all a great course I would return to with my A game.

Course is now under management that cares about its members.
Hadn't played here in years, but will be back again in the near future and hopefully next season as well.

This course has always been one of my favorites.
I have always enjoyed playing at Putnam County Golf Course, even back in the "Lake MacGregor" days. It has it's share of challenging holes, but also has some fairly easy holes, which offset one another. I am a woman, and the forward tees play just over 5,700 yards, which can be long for women that do not hit a very long ball. My average driving distance is between 200 and 220 yards and I still had trouble finding some of the greens in regulation. The greens are good. They just aerated them and they are very true. Warning: There can be some very subtle breaks at times. The only thing about this course I do not like is that many of the fairways run parallel with one another, and it can be dangerous out there! Also, didn't see any rangers out there helping to speed things up a bit, although I did get my round in in just over 4 1/2 hours. All in all, I would highly recommend this course to anyone who enjoys a fun course with plenty of character. It is especially beautiful to play in the fall. Be prepared to use every club in your bag!
