Come check out this little side road trip for a quick stop. Some interesting geology of the salt flats. I would not want to go walking out on the salt flats here as it is rough, sharp and jagged. Check out the interpretive signs and try and listen for the salt formations crackling. If you only have a day in... More

Yes only the Devil could imagine a golf course here. Another view testifying to the hardships our forefathers endured while traveling through Death Valley.

It's hard to say something that everyone else hasn't already. Yes, it's absolutely worth the trip. It's not that much of a "side trip" if you're going to spend any time in Death Valley, esp. if you're going to or from Badwater. It was incredibly hot when we were there -- over 125 -- and we still devoted some time... More

If you are travelling in Death Valley, do not miss the Devil's Golf Course. There are several sights along this road and it is worth the 26 mile round trip. The most interesting thing was listening to the salt crack in the heat - and it is HOT!! We visited in June. Very interesting and you can walk around on... More

Interesting place with short drive from the main road. I had to taste the salt formations, they look so weird! :)

Took the off road, maybe a half mile dirt road to Devil's Golf Course and I believe only the devil could play this couse. Dried up dirt seen for hundreds of acres. One of the must stops in Death Valley.

There are lots of curious places in Death Valley. This place can either be a drive by photo stop or you can take a bit longer and drive down one of the tracks to get a closer view. Don't drive off the tracks though please. Some people had done so and tyre (tire!) marks everywhere spoil it for others.

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.
