  • Comments View
    • Puttenham is a mature and challenging course offering a mix of heath and woodland. It is not too long, but the tight fairways and well-guarded greens mean you have to think your way around a layout where no two holes are the same. .
    • The Course, with its predominantly sandy soil, is usually dry underfoot and drains quickly in the wettest of weather for excellent playing conditions all year round. In dry spells there is an extensive on course watering system that ensures optimum fairway conditions. There are well prepared paths between holes and bench seats available at most tees. A halfway hut located at the 10th tee provides welcome refreshment and standard toilet facilities.
