This is not actually a golf course to improve your handicap, although the is a playable course in Death Valley.

The floor of Death Valley is a huge evaporating dish covering more than 200 square miles. It's crusted over with a variety of salts which can be seen up close and personal at the Devil's Golf Course. The salt comes close to looking like a coral reef. The lumpy salt pinnacles are the residue of Death Valley's last significant lake, which evaporated 2,000 years ago.

You can take a walk amongst the salt formations, although this looked a bit tricky to us and we were just happy to take in the peace and quiet.

Directions: Devil's Golf Course is located 15 miles south of the visitor centre at Furnace Creek.
