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.

This was an unique and exotic place for us and we experienced our personal temprature records. Did not find any golf balls but we still loved it!

Never seen anything like it before! The ground is cracked, uneven and all broken in to pieces. We even tasted the salt on top of the ground!

It's a very rough drive down an unmade road to reach this area of the salt flats. While the mountains surround, it's not beautiful here... however the crytalisation of the salt creates detailed salt mounds which are quite beautiful in themselves. NOTE: If touring consider an annual National Parks pass, as the cost of visiting a few soon mounts up.... More

Unbelievable how the earth creates these places. Dried up lake bed, so dry with holes everywhere, covered in a salty crystal casing. It is a bit slow going off road driving but worth the trek down there to see it.

Worth going to see Devils golf course. If you are driving from furnace creek to Badwater there is a gravel road on the right hand . (Don't drive too fast - and be aware of other tourists that do and throw up loose stones). It is well sign posted. Once at the end of the gravel road you are in... More
