On a trip to Las Vegas and the surrounding area for my best friend's 50th birthday, we drove up to see Death Valley, stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch (see separate review) and took the opportunity to get in a round of golf at the hottest, lowest golf course in the world! The course is pretty good and well-maintained (especailly... More

We stayed in the inn at furnace creek and had the golf break of two rounds at this course. It was excellent when considering the location the course was in great condition. Nice wide fairways not too many hazards reasonable greens. We did see coyotes chasing the wildlife! Pro shop very helpful, in need you can hire clubs. Remember to... More

Course can only be played from 6:30am to 2:00pm during summer season. Breathtaking views and a course in very good condition which is surprising given the golf is in the middle of Death Valley. Green fee is more than affordable and definitely worth it. We played the course in the early morning and were lucky to see some wildlife.

Just being in the middle of Death Vally makes this course unique. It is a lot of fun and can be quite a challenge on certain holes if you play from the back tees. It is in great shape and the layout (especially on the front nine) has been shaped and contoured to add interest. The desert back drop is... More

This is a fairly standard American golf course. We played at start of April and it was in pretty good condition. The greens could have been better but it is a course in the middle of nowhere. It is great for the novelty of playing well below sea level. I noticed no difference in distance to ball travelled. It is... More

Huge amounts of water are needed to keep this golf course going, and they do a fantastic job too. I was surprised by the quality of the fairways and greens, and overall it was a very enjoyable round. I can also say I've played the 'lowest' golf course in the world, which is just great!

Golfing is always great. Golfing 286 feet below sea level is something to talk about! This is a very good golf course. It doesn't get 5 stars because it's only a nine hole that you play twice for 18!. But the scenery is outstanding. In fact it makes your game longer because of the many times you just stop and...

On a whim we checked in at the pro shop to see if we could get on for 9 holes late in the day. No problem and the price was very fair. The course is fairly basic, but still has interesting holes. Trouble comes from trees which line several holes, some sand traps (they have enough sand in the valley... More

Just finished playing in a 3 day scramble event for the thrid year in a row. Course was in its best shape of the three. You can tell the staff really worked on it this fall. Greens rolled nicely. Fariways were in great shape as was the rough. Course has some interesting holes considering the topography is flat and in... More
