Truly an oasis in the desert

Terrific experience in a place where it is almost impossible to have green grass. The lowest golf course on earth offers a fun layout with lots of water features and serene atmosphere. Drove about 2 hours from Las Vegas to check it out and was very satisfied with the experience. The staff was very friendly and the mulligan burger at the 19th hole was great!

Windy weather

A surprising Oasis in the desert

I was told I would shoot the lowest round of my life on Furnace Creek, but that certainly wasn't the case on a day so windy that we actually worried a sandstorm might descend upon us.
The course was in fine shape for the grand reopening celebration I attended at the Oasis, the newly re-branded and revived resort in the heart of Death Valley. The flat course features few bunkers, but there's enough there to make for a good day. Tall trees lining the fairway are thick in some places, pinching tee shots to make players nervous. A single pond comes into play on several holes, notably the par-3 second hole where I rinsed my shot.
The revamped open-air 19th hole is a popular spot for a drink and/or a beer for resort guests, even if they aren't golfers. With such a beautiful backdrop of mountains and desert, playing at 214 feet below sea level - the world's lowest elevation for golf - delivers a nice high.

Furnace Creek Golf Course

Sitting at 214 feet below sea level, the 2.5 hour drive from Las Vegas is pretty much all down hill. An easy walking course that is fairly wide open, palms & tamarisk trees line a few fairways & some wonderful mountain views in the distance. There were a couple of fairways that had dormant grass but the greens were very good with subtle breaks & rolled well. Give some thought to using an extra club into the greens as your ball doesn't seem to fly as far at this low altitude. Unfortunately bunkers were few & far between & only one water hazard that really didn't come into play. This area is a nice break from the hustle & bustle that is Vegas.
