Purgatory Golf Club
Spread across 218 acres, the Ron Kern-designed Purgatory Golf Club is the longest par-72 course east of the Mississippi River. Nevertheless, the course is set up to be enjoyed by all, with six different sets of tees ranging from more than 7,700 yards all the way down to just under 4,600 yards. Bunkering is one of the club's defining features, with more than 130 coming into play. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the par-3 17th, where eight massive bunkers almost completely surround the putting surface.

The pace of play was awful! It’s generous to call it slow! The greens were bad to due to recent airation…which would have been nice to know BEFORE the round.
It was slow…miserably slow. People hitting into your group slow because the 4 slowpokes in front refused to move or step aside. There were at least 2 open holes in front of them so ….
As much as this place charges…one would think a ranger may be on course. But…alas…no. Perhaps SLOW play is another thing they do to make the course difficult? It is called Purgatory after all.
Bring your A game!
Amazing course. A must play. Great amenities, staff and instruction.
Purgatory is Heavenly
Very challenging but a great treat. Course is in great condition, greens are near perfect.
Can you give 5 stars for the scariest course?
Literally a great course but man was it a doozie! Bunker heck is more like it! Bring extra golf balls!
This course has 120+ bunkers. It rained for a few days before my round so I expected wet fairway and bunkers. Being able to hit bunker shot would be the key to play this course so I would not recommend playing here when it's wet, but we still had fun. Course difficulty is above average so this course is fun for low to mid handicappers. I highly recommend to people who likes challenging course.
I've played this course for the past 6-7 years and I almost feel like it's skating by on it's past successes. I'll say most the tee boxes and fairways live up to the $80 price tag however outside of that there are some issues. The cart paths are in horrific condition which leads to the other problem of rutting all over the rough areas. Really need to invest in some path upgrades imo. Outside of that there are some greens that were pretty shocking certainly lead by 13....what is that about?!?! Anyway, for the cost, average value at best.
This place is really really good. It’s one of my favorite places to play. Pace of play has been great every time I’ve ever been here which is huge for me
