214ft Below Sea Level Golf Course - This is a MUST!!
Mar 2021
Play 9 holes below sea level before a full day of sightseeing and hiking ~ yep I'm IN!! We made sure to grab our morning tee time prior to leaving for our Death Valley getaway. We knew only 9-holes as we had a full day planned for Furnace Creek with temperatures at 85 and winds at 15 to 25

Furnace Creek Golf Course is located in Death Valley at the Oasis boasting 214 feet below Sea Level as the World's Lowest Elevation 18-hole par 70 course it was a MUST do while we were there. The course has stellar views with beautiful palm & tamarisk trees framing the fairways with overall conditions comparable to our local municipal course at home ~ but those views!!

Restaurant currently closed due to climate of 2020/early Spring 2021, hopefully that will change as time progresses. Staff was helpful on phone and in pro shop, remember to take ALOT of H20 and something to eat with you.

A one woman show... a variety of burgers served with a packet of chips. Nothing special. Nice view from the restaurant

Immaculate course with a good value pro shop.
Sep 2019
This is a must stop place on any trip through Death Valley even if you don't play golf. It is the lowest golf course in the world so worth a photo stop! The course looks immaculate and there is a friendly welcome awaiting in the pro shop but because of the heat check opening times if you want to buy a souvenir. Most golfers are out by 6 AM and back by 11.00. There are well priced souvenirs and when we visited some of the shirts were 20% reduced - bargains to be had.

You have to at least look at the course

There was a tournament being played the while I was at Death Valley so I did not get on the course myself but I was still impressed with the juxtaposition of the course green and the surrounding desert earth tones - I don't even want to know how much water that requires!

Even if you don't play its worth a look

We had made a rest stop in Furnace Creek and sought out a place to eat. We ended up at the golf course although we didn't realise till afterwards that there was actually a cafe here. We ended up eating at another eatery which was nothing special, an easy burger and chips and a cold drink...didn't really expect much more out here though. The good thing was we did have a view of the golf course which was just amazing... so green i the middle of the desert .. I would have loved to have the time to play here... it just looked to inviting. Worth a look just for interest value

Golf below sea level!

I have played this course numerous times over the years. I enjoy it very much as it’s beautiful and you might even stumble upon the occasional coyote as you walk up on one of the greens. It’s a very enjoyable and challenging golf course.

Good Watering Hole

The ONLY place to get a beer or cocktail at Furnace Creek during construction! The bar is GONE, and the Furnace Creek Inn is under construction also. My buddy and I had two pleasant afternoons having beer and chatting with the locals here. You can also get burgers, etc. -- and the atmosphere is better than the metal shed that is the ONLY eating place during reconstruction of the facilities.

Not the golf course, but the accommodation attatched
Oct 2017
We had booked to stay at the Furnace Creek Ranch, which is attatched to the course. We were informed that there would be building works going on the entrance to the ranch, but were shocked to see that there work going on all over the place. The restaurant was something out of works canteen, only the food was worse. The building was a very large metal shed, with very limited food offerings. Our first meal was fried chicken, coleslaw, and biscuit and gravy. We ordered at a counter, and by the time we had paid and started walking to a table, a waiter was behind us with our food. So it had to have just sitting out the back waiting to be dished up. It wasn't that good either. Another night I had macaroni and cheese, thinking that there couldn't be anything they could get wrong with that, but it was dry and tasteless. I think it must have been made at least an hour before. As you're staying in the remotest place in the valley, you really don't have have any choice but to eat here, but if you're going anytime in the near future, then I would suggest that you drive to Stovepipe Wells and eat there.
So much for the food. The rooms are in old concrete built blocks, looking something like an old army base. Perfectly adequate, but not somewhere to stay for a special occasion. The swimming pool was probably the only saving grace, in the whole place.
It may be wonderful when it's all finished, but never needing to go back there again, I'll never know!

Nice Afternoon Golf at Furnace Creek
Mar 2017 • Family
Furnace Creek at 214 below sea level is the lowest elevation golf course in the world. We play in March and the conditions were very good. Kip, the fellow that was running the clubhouse was great. He was outstanding in the service he provided and sets the standard on how a golf business should be operated. Our foursome had a terrific time playing 18 here and would not hesitate to return anytime we're in the area.
