  • Devil's Golf Course, a large rock salt flat, can be accessed by a 1.3 mi dirt road off Badwater Road. There is a small parking area at the end of the road. This is one of the better-maintained dirt ro...  more »
  • Very special experience in Death Valley and it would also definitely recommend to visit. You don't have very long here to stay, but 5-10 minutes is enough. It is a particularly lava rock (I think at least), some pretty creepy. It is therefore no wonder that the the Devil's Golf Course is called.

  • to get ...denn on the idea that you should play golf, probably not a "mortal" would come. To drive impressive landscape and alone the dusty road towards point barren of interest", is already an experience.

  • One of the best and unique locations in death valley. I especially appreciate this location because there is some hazard in exploring. You don’t see that much anymore. The rocks are sharp and uneven, but fascinatingly different at every turn. Some of the salt formations are trampled but others seemed untouched. I would bring anyone here and explore... without falling.
  • This address leads to not the actual devils golf course which is few hundread yards away. But this point is also good. It tales you on the unpaved road and drive was worth it. We were the only people at this point and no human in few miles if radius. My kid loved running around in open space.
  • The Google Maps app set us off course and we originally ended up out of bounds. In the end it turned out to have some interesting rocks and some neat salt, but as an actual golf course it leaves a whole lot to be desired. I wouldn’t recommend driving the extra few hundred yards unless you have a great interest in geology and little interest in golf.
  • Don't be shocked by the sandy and unprepared road, any car can do it easily. The drive is totally worth it, the salt-rock formations look indeed as they were from another, remote and dangerous world. Just walk 5 minutes away from the parking spot and you'll find some nice, undamaged area. When trying to get there, Google sent us too early into the desert, just wait for the sign "devil's golf course" on the main road.
  • The short unpaved road brings you out into the middle of this unique and interesting landscape. The jagged salt formations extend as far as the eye can see. There isn't much opportunity to explore further than the carpark as the salt is rock hard and extremely sharp, although it is quite interesting to look at closely from this area.
