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.

You reach this spot down a short unpaved road to a parking lot off Badwater Rd. What you are basically looking at are surreal salt formations left behind after the ancient seabed dried out. What is most amazing about them is how hard they are, with very sharp edges which would really hurt sold you fall. You are allowed to... More

We stopped here along our route. It is a fantastic stop off, the salt formations here are so odd it's like nothing on earth and feels like you should be in space. We walked a few steps in for a nice photo but be careful as the salt formations are sharp and I wouldn't fancy falling on them.

The road to the Devil's Golf Course was the only unpaved road we took to the different attractions in Death Valley. It was fortunately for the suspension of my car, not a very long drive. It was pretty amazing to see a landscape of such jagged rocks stretching for miles around, most of them topped with a layer of salt.... More

We didn't take the road down to this place, but from the road, it was hard to view. I think it could be interesting, but maybe a bit hard on cars to get to.
