“Fun Place to Stay and Play”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Just returned from a weekend at Furnace Creek Ranch and playing Furnace Creek Golf Course. The ranch was remodelled a few years ago and even though the outside looks dated, the rooms were well appointed, clean, and comfortable.

Had dinner twice at the Steakhouse. Great steaks and service. A little pricy, but they do have a captive audience. Had breaksfast and lunch at the 49er Cafe. Large portions and tasted great. Don't waste your money on the breakfast or lunch buffets at the steakhouse. Go to the cafe.

Golf course was in great shape. Staff was phenominal. We had a large group with saturday and sunday shotgun starts. They did a great job getting everyone out in time, caring for clubs overnight, etc. Our saturday round was started by arriving on the #6 tee wher two coyotes were sitting watching the ducks in the nearby lake. We say countless coyotes and roadrunners (make your own old cartoon comments now) all over the course.

Boyfriend said the only disappointment was that it wasn't hotter - temperature reaching 106degC was more than hot enough for me! Very interesting scenery, and we enjoyed the short film at Furnace Creek visitor center.

“simply stunning”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

loved the journey from Yosemite Country Park to Furnace Creek in Death through the nevada sierra desert - the rock formations in the mountains, the desert sand, the dried salt lakes are simply stunning.

“18 Holes - 118 Degrees”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

True story; began my round at 12:30 p.m. and yes, I was only one on the course. Played there on June 30th. $30 green fees and you can play for as long as you like. Of course you have to take a motorized cart and there is no water on the course, so make sure you bring lots of your own. First nine holes are the best and the open layout is quite varied on these holes, which is pretty remarkable considering the location. Lots of mature trees lining the fairways and water comes into play on several holes. The back nine is unspectacular. Most of the fairways and greens are in very good condition especially considering the environment. All in all, a blast and the surrounding scenery is pretty amazing. Good clubhouse, too.
