“We Played Golf in Death Valley and It Was Wet”

Owner description: Part of the Furnace Creek Resort, this 18-hole course is 214 feet below sea level.

On a whim we checked in at the pro shop to see if we could get on for 9 holes late in the day. No problem and the price was very fair. The course is fairly basic, but still has interesting holes. Trouble comes from trees which line several holes, some sand traps (they have enough sand in the valley for more), and surprisingly water hazards. We were surprised to find several spots of mud on the course, but then realized they have to keep the course wet to even have a course. We learned there's more water in Death Valley than we thought. If the weather is playable it certainly would be worth the time to play the lowest golf course in the world.

Just finished playing in a 3 day scramble event for the thrid year in a row. Course was in its best shape of the three. You can tell the staff really worked on it this fall. Greens rolled nicely. Fariways were in great shape as was the rough. Course has some interesting holes considering the topography is flat and in a limited space. Don't judge the course by the small practice green or the sparse driving range. We saw plenty of coyotes and road runners on all days. You cannot beat the views looking down fairways with the massive rock mountains in the backgroound.

Played a golf tournament in the middle of the summer at the hottest place in the US. The course is very nice and green and very challenging. Temperature hit 118 during the afternoon and at 200+ feet below sea level, the ball does not go as far as you would like.

The pool at the hotel was a welcome attraction!

Played 9 holes (back nine) early morning which I thoroughly enjoyed, taking into account temp was already 38C at 0700. Compliments to green keepers as course was in great condition taking into account harsh conditions that exist in the valley at this time of year. Great service at Pro Shop as was easy and uncomplicated to rent set of clubs to play. Next time will plan more time to play full course.
