Furnace Creek Golf Course

Interesting golf course to play. I played early morning with a 6:30 tee time to avoid the heat of the day. The greens had been watered and were slow to play but the course itself... read more

Had been looking forward to playing his golf course since the first time we spotted it. A golf course in the middle of Death Valley, who would have thought of it, but it is beautiful, green fairways, great greens, water hazards and immense date palms line the ourse. There are several 500 yard par 5s. Truly a great experience. Note*... More

We golfed two days in a row at this golf course. The course wasn't in too bad a shape considering the location and heat. We started after 2 both days and did nine holes. A number of reviewers have commented positively on the staff. Sadly, we did not have same experience. We had to go hunting for the pro shop... More

We had a fabulous experience playing golf here. The course was well maintained and quite pretty. We were surprised to see so much water/lakes! The surrounding mountains provided a beautiful backdrop to the course. We will be back definitely to play.

We arrived at the resort in intense heat but determined to play golf and we were made very welcome indeed even though we turned up without a booking. We were kitted out with clubs and a buggy there and then. Balls and tees there to purchase and keep (assuming you don't lose them!!). The course is in fabulous condition and... More

Interesting golf course to play. I played early morning with a 6:30 tee time to avoid the heat of the day. The greens had been watered and were slow to play but the course itself is good and a reasonable challenge. If you are a golfer and visiting Death Valley it is definitely worth playing.

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

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
