Devil's Golf Course is a salt flat of beautifully formed crystals caused by the unique conditions of Death Valley. Unfortunately most of the people that visit here tromp out into the "course" crushing the salt crystals under their inconsiderate feet. The signage indicated that these crystals can literally take decades to form so just one set of feet can cause... More

Interesting area. Short drive down a gravel road. You probably will not want to spend more than 10 or 15 minutes at the parking area but take the time for this short drive.

Great salt spires that are created from the erosion. Very interesting area and you can walk around but just be careful can be a bit treacherous!

We drove by this on our way to Badwater Basin. Quite unique and interesting abutting the Panamint Mountain Ridge.

The road is fine for sedans. Loved the lumpy formations as far as you could see, and the way they looked like caves when you got up close - totally mess with your sense of perspective. Definitely get out of the car and walk a little way among them to see the detail.

Take the time and drive in on the rough road. You simply can't get the full experience from the main road. The course is actually a salt bed that curls up in hand sized pockets liked a golf course. Very interesting.

Right at milepost 11 on Badwater Road south of Furnace Creek, is the turn off to the Devil's Golf Course. Drive down the mile and a half dirt road to the parking area, get out and start exploring! The salt crystals are beautiful, however, are very sharp and hard, so be careful walking out among them. If you trip and... More

I loved the Devil's Golf Course. You travel down a decent, little dirt road which takes you into the heart of the Course. Get out and walk among the deposits. Be careful not to trip and fall. These rock and salt formations are hard and unforgiving. When we went, hardly anyone was there. Most everyone bypassed this area. Their loss... More

we enjoyed the golf course. It wasnt far off the road and the salt formations very interesting. We walked out among them and had an enjoyable ten minutes exploring. It is worth the short detour.
