The Devil’s Golf Course is a salt pan and is located on the floor of Death Valley (inside Death Valley National Park). It is also located near the center of Death Valley National Park and is about 15 miles south of Furnace Creek on Badwater Road. It is also about 60 miles northwest of Pahrump, Nevada.

While to the average eye it does not look like much, it really is quite interesting when you discover how it was formed and what it looks like in the late afternoon, with the Panamint Mountains in the background. I have never hiked it, as it was always too hot, but when next we go, I will make sure we... More

When you get there you will know why it's call that... no one can play golf there unless it was the Devil! Worth the visit.

Definitely worth the short detour , This is a quite unusual rock formation probably very rare in the world ! Be careful if you want to walk on this surface and do not allow children to do it as the rocks have sharp cutting edges !

The Devil's Golf Course is quick to get to, down an unsealed road from the main road, and suitable for all vehicles. Because it's easy to get to, and looking at it doesn't take long, it's worth a visit. Fascinating terrain (slip or stumble and you'll end up with a nasty graze, so take care). We spent maybe 10 minutes... More

A 1.3 mile dirt road with washboards off Badwater road, will lead you to this one of a kind place. A very large basin where where wind forms the rock salt jagged spires. Apparently these spires grow very slow, maybe an inch every few decades.

Miles and miles and miles of salt in every direction. Do not fall or slip or you will be cut to pieces. The rock hard shards of salt make a weird sound when banged. Try it!

Had read about this in the Information Center and decided to take the short detour off the road. Well worth seeing the gnarled crystalline salt spires close up. Did not see any of the golf balls of salt. Like the surface of a coral reef. Not sure why this is not rated higher as a place to visit as I... More
