Furnace Creek Golf Course in Death Valley National Park, California

Our friend Jay Morse from Forelinksters writes about golf opportunities in Death Valley.

The above image was my idea of what golf in Death Valley would look like. After all the Furnace Creek Inn & Ranch Resort is in the middle of Death Valley National Park, California, 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and 275 miles northeast of LA. The resort has two hotels – a- four diamond, 66 room Furnace Creek Inn, and a more moderately priced Furnace Creek Ranch.


Furnace Creek Ranch Golf Course

In actuality, the top and bottom photos are a nickname for one of the trails through the Death Valley National Park, while the above photo is from the Furnace Creek golf course.  The course opened in 1927 with a three hole layout designed by one of the ranch hands of the farming community here. The full course opened in 1931, and was redesigned by Perry Dye in 1997, and is considered the lowest golf course in the world at 214 feet below sea level. Not what you’d expect in the middle of Death Valley and a couple hundred feet below sea level, but lush green fairways, tree lined with water in play on six holes. It’s short at 6,236-yards from the blue tees, and is fairly tight with tree-lined palms and tamarisks, and some parallel fairways. The greens are small and featureless, overall lightly bunkered. You’re not here for the golf, and the course isn’t championship caliber, it’s more the overall experience of playing in the middle of Death Valley. The experience you’ll remember, the course, probably not.
