- The Course
- Furnace Creek Golf Course at Death Valley is an 18-hole course located in a true American oasis within the three million acres that is Death Valley National Park. It’s best to be humble and not fooled by the wide-open fairways and the length of the course, which plays to a par of 70 and is only 6,215 yards from the back tees. From there, the course has a USGA rating of 74.7 with a slope of 128. Begun in 1927, the legendary course recently underwent a massive renovation primarily focused on water conservation and the transition of 15 acres of maintained turf to desert with low-water-use native plantings which was overseen by Fred Dickman, Director of Golf Course Maintenance and Hotel Grounds for the legendary Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs.Important Note: Found on all maps, The Devil’s Golf Course in Death Valley, located a few miles from Furnace Creek is not an actual golf course, but an expansive salt field created by evaporated bodies of water.
