The road to Devil's Golf course is a dirt road and it's a couple of minutes off the main road. It gives a great view on the salt formations that make up the terrain. You've seen it in 10 mins I would say and then you quickly want to go back in the comfy climate of your car.

Devil's Golf Course is one of the more incredible parts of Death Valley. The salt has been worn into sharp jagged edges with the wind and occasional rain. Very unexpected until you actually see it up close. It is one of the can't miss parts of Death Valley

I was skeptical about stopping off at this place - with a name like Devil's Golf Course, anything I had imagined in my mind did not sound enjoyable (does it belong to the devil because its even hotter here than everywhere else in DV? Thats where my mind wandered to...) However, I was SO pleasantly surprised! I LOVED this stop... More

Devil's Golf Course is just another must see during the DV visit. Certainly is what they claim. Could not imagine! Devil couldn't even play golf here, if he wanted! Must take a look when visiting DV and Badwater.

Devils golf course is a very cool landscape. The ground is sharp and uneven so watch your step. Make a point to taste the ground as weird as that sounds.... It's salty! Pack water and enjoy!

I don't know what we expected, but this looks nothing like a golf course. Broken terrain consisting of compacted salt crystals with an occasional bit of water. Really interesting to look at, but not much more than a quick detour unless you are a photographer. It is what it is. Best time to visit is winter...and it is still hot!

The name is very intriguing which we had a guessing game to describe what we would see at the end of the mile road. The rain changes the salt crystals into balls (that look like golf balls) after the rain. It is a unique experience to this part of the world

It is a nice experience to feel heat. In my opinion cold is better. You can do something against deep temperature but against heat you are helpless... Ok a beer could help.... But not in Devil's Golf Course... Over and out :-)

Really quite strange, looks like a ploughed field from afar. worth a look as it is only a small detour when you're driving past. Salt crystal formations need a macro lens if you want to capture it.
