Stop-Motion Video of Hole #1

By: Tony Adragna on March 11th, 2014

Earlier this morning, I headed out to the course with just my iPhone in hand and knew I wanted to do something unique, but I wasn’t really sure what.  After toying with a few ideas, I got the idea to take a stop-motion video (stop-motion means taking a bunch of pictures and putting them together, pretty much like a flipbook).

I decided to walk the entire first hole while I took the stop-motion video.  By the time I arrived at the hole, I was pleased with the turnout of the stop-motion video.  It’s something I wouldn’t mind doing for each hole, but for now, hole #1 will do.  Below is a the stop-motion video that I took.

How do I share Purgatory’s Golf Course Magic?

By: Tenna Merchent on January 5th, 2013

Moonlit view of the clubhouse

As I think about this year’s advertising I ask myself “How do I share the magic of sunrise at Purgatory Golf Club?”

In the morning you can hear the crickets and the birds. There is often mist or fog on the ground or the lakes. The grass glimmers with dew, the maintenance crew is manicuring the putting greens, bunkers, and fairways. The air smells fresh and moist. It’s cool so you’re dressed in layers. You hear the occasional gas powered maintenance vehicle in the distance. The sprinklers are running over a green.

At that moment in time, there is no place else on earth you’d rather be.

You might ask yourself, “Well isn’t that the case at any golf course?” The answer is no. Purgatory is in the middle of nowhere. You have to work to get here. So it is quiet. Purgatory is long, so when you’re out on the golf course, the golf course is all you see. Purgatory is challenging, so there are bunkers, tall grass, and hills everywhere. It is striking, breath taking, and unusual.

Now, I can’t wait for spring, and one of those mornings.
