   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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
