Drove down to the Devils Golf Course, Devil wasn't there just a few Germans. Spend the full total time of 10 minutes and drove off...

Interesting formations, but I don't see the draw to this location. If you're in to different formations this one is for you. I'd recommend passing if you have limited time.

If visiting Death Valley National Park, the Devil's Golf Course is worth a short visit (10 or 15 minutes). The area consists of rock salt pinnacles several feet high and some nice views of Telescope Peak.

The short drive is unpaved but a very good road, however because of that it might discourage some from taking it, if they don't, they will miss one of the exceptional places in Death Valley. The name gives you no idea what is there and after seeing it you still won't believe miles of salt crystal shapes that are as... More

Well I have been in desert few times but this was something different... something I havent seen in my life. Whole place around was like freshly ploved field but dirt is hard as stone and full of salt crystals. Be careful walking in it because if you fall sharp edges and salt will do a lot of pain. Amazing what... More

I'm not sure I would call it a golf course, but it is a very interesting looking place. I guess the rocks could look like golf balls. Don't miss it.

So many people had walked on the salt, so it looked nothing like the picture on the stand/info thing. It was a dirt road leading in but it wasn't for long. The scenery in the background across the main road looked like it was from a painting!

This is a relatively short stop, so it won't take too much time. I wasn't planning on stopping here but I saw it was a short drive and I went. It is not that impressing, but I am glad that I did it.

Constantly changing, but looked like a plowed field with salt over it. Unusual but not the most scenic views in the valley.
