Purgatory Golf Club Noblesville, Indianapolis

Purgatory Golf Club is a unique course built in the year 2000 and designed by course architect Ron Kern.


Purgatory Golf is a beautiful course with scenic views and sits on 218 acres of gently rolling farmlands. 

The course claims to be the longest non-mountain course on the planet, measuring more than 7700 yards from the tips and is a long hitter’s dream come true. 

There are a whopping 130 bunkers with some massive ones for hazards from where the club also derived its name and is kinda famous for it too. If someone were to see an aerial photograph of the course, you couldn’t blame them if they said that this was some kind of an art project.

The course is made in links-style meaning there wouldn’t be too many trees on the grounds and will have undulating greens with a risk-reward layout. The fairways are tight on some and wide on others with some sidehill lies. The roughs are thick, which can play spoilsport. There is water on the course but doesn’t really come into play that much. 

As long as you can get the ball onto the fairways, things should bode well for you and you’d be able to put a decent score on the board. Otherwise, bring in some extra set of balls. As someone said, “Heaven if you shoot good and Purgatory if you don’t.” 

With all these yardages, you’d be compelled to think that the course is a very challenging one. Although it’s not easy, as long as you pick the right set of tees, there is no reason why anyone shouldn’t find this course to be a fun one too.

There are six sets of tees that cater to all skill level levels with the tip Purgatory at 7754 yards and the forward Yellow at 4560 yards.
