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 a limited space. Don't judge the course by the small practice green or the sparse driving range. We saw plenty of coyotes and road runners on all days. You cannot beat the views looking down fairways with the massive rock mountains in the backgroound.

Played a golf tournament in the middle of the summer at the hottest place in the US. The course is very nice and green and very challenging. Temperature hit 118 during the afternoon and at 200+ feet below sea level, the ball does not go as far as you would like.

The pool at the hotel was a welcome attraction!

Played 9 holes (back nine) early morning which I thoroughly enjoyed, taking into account temp was already 38C at 0700. Compliments to green keepers as course was in great condition taking into account harsh conditions that exist in the valley at this time of year. Great service at Pro Shop as was easy and uncomplicated to rent set of clubs to play. Next time will plan more time to play full course.

The lowest golf course in the world - and the smallest pro shop and shuttiest bar/restaurant.

Marginally interesting to those who do not play golf, riveting to those who do.

It's so lush and green. For a moment it's easy to forget exactly where you are.

The golf course at Furnace Creek looks like an Oasis in the desert. Didn't golf there, but would like to.
