This is a nice side visit on the way to Bad Water. The formations would indeed make it "one hell of a golf course"!! The road to the site is very dusty, but what would you expect from a desert. There are well positioned information signs and pictures as well, that describe this formation. Another interesting area of Death Valley.

Like everything else in Death Valley, the Devil's Golf Course has an otherworldly appearance to it. From a distance, it looks like a million people had fun stomping around in a giant field of mud. However, when you actually get there, you realize that these are hard, crystalized salt formations that can seriously scrape you up if you fall on... More

We stopped at the Devil's Golf Course on the way to Badwater Basin. The landscape is so very unusual...and you'll love the views. Worth the visit.

I don't think I've ever seen anything like the topography of the Devil's Golf Course. It has formed from sun baked salt flats but the salt has crystallised into uneven big ball shaped clusters. It's not the easiest to walk on as it crunches and crumbles underfoot. There's a big car park in the middle but one you leave the... More

Devil´s Golf Course was our third stop on our day trip to DVNP and I have to say it was the best experience of our whole trip. There is not much to see and do; I mean, it´s just a wierd salt formation on the ground. What made it amazing for us was the fact that there was nobody around... More

You have to drive a few hundred meters off the main road along a rough pot holed gravel road to get to the parking area. Once at the golf course you will be amazed at how big and how far the place stretches. The rocks and salt deposits are very rigid and sharp. Stopping here is well worth it.

A short off-road drive to a bizarre location where you can explore, touch, and photograph to your hearts content.

It's hard to believe that all the crystals in this area are salt. You can walk out into the flats, but there isn't a path and it is VERY jagged.

Very strange place with strange grounds. The inventor of the name have a very sick sense of humor, which is good . only the devil could play golf on this ground, all we can do is walk very carefully between the twisted rocks.
