Not sure why they called it a golf course, but this is an amazing place. Make sure you visit in the morning, because even in early spring it is pretty warm. Always take water- it is very easy to get dehydrated

Alien landscape, we were here on a very still day and it was amazing to be able to hear absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing. The salt makes for some interesting photos, and it's not far off the road so worth a little drive.

A little dirt road visible from Badwater road....what the heck go for it. Once there - there is nothing spectacular. Of course you're in the middle of the Valley and you have a good background for a photo op, but the dangerous looking rocks that make up the floor of the valley could be avoided. Good thing it takes about... More

This is worth a look (and a photo opportunity) as it's such a short detour on the road to Badwater salt flats.

One needs to take a small de-tour on the Badwater Road to access the Devil's Golf Course. The look and feel of these salt flats is very different from what you see in Badwater.

This NOT a golf course. It's someone's idea of a unique name for unique salt pool formations on the floor of Death Valley. A 20 minute drive south of Furnace Creek and here you are. Be VERY careful venturing off the road and out into the salt formations. They are extremely sharp-edged and footing is precarious. Just one a few... More

The surface of this area is very different from the near by salt flats. It was hard to imagine how early visitors could even cross this lumpy bumpy landscape either on foot or in a wagon.

We loved Devil's Golf Course. At first we weren't going to stop because it didn't look like much of an attraction bet we were so thankful we did. If it's really quiet you can actually hear the cracking sound from the boulders. We did walk out on it but you have to be careful because there are some sharp points... More
