   Furnace Creek Golf Course Est. 1927

Where2Golf says: 

Furnace Creek Golf Course: Located in Death Valley, the hottest, driest and lowest place in the USA, Furnace Creek is the world's lowest elevation golf course. At 214 feet below sea level, this 18-hole par-70 oasis course, includes amongst its challenges slightly greater gravity and barometric pressure - the ball will not travel as far as you are used to ! Originally opened in 1931, the course underwent a major renovation in 1997 by renowned golf course architect Perry Dye. For golf enthusiasts, no visit to the extraordinary and scorched scenery of Death Valley is complete without a round on the world's lowest golf course. Excellent value Stay & Play packages include accommodation and a day of unlimited golf.
