“All you big hitters step forward. No not you! I mean the REALLY big hitters!! Located just north of Indianapolis and only two hours south of Chicago is the Purgatory Golf Club. Aptly named, for at 7,754 yards this is diabolical, as well as one of the longest courses in the world. Architect Ron Kern designed an excellent Scottish links-style course that features, seven par-4‘s each over 450 yards and four par-5‘s all over 550 yards in length – plus one that stretches to over 740 yards! Adding to your “Purgatory,”there are also over 130 strategically placed bunkers filled with finely crushed limestone throughout the course.
”I also must tell you that the use of the crushed limestone in bunkers is new and extremely unusual, but, boy are they beautiful to hit out of.”
