History

As the world's lowest golf course, Furnace Creek has long been a "bucket list"" item for golfers seeking a challenge they won't find anywhere else. Furnace Creek provides golfers with a unique and unforgettable golfing experience that will make playing at sea level seem like an ocean breeze. Golfers find themselves needing to add one or two clubs to their shots to account for each of the 214 feet that Furnace Creek's golf course sits below sea level. When Perry Dye updated the course in 1997, well aware that the elevation would cause the course to play several hundred yards longer than its true distance, he designed a track that challenges good players with a diverse mix of long and short holes from the back tees, while remaining fair and fun for those just picking up the game. Despite its locale, Furnace Creek isn't a 'desert' golf course, instead playing as a parkland design surrounded by lush trees and dramatic mountains in all directions. Add a historic four diamond Inn and a natural spring-fed swimming pool, and it's no wonder that golfers have been making annual trips to this ""true American oasis"" for over eight decades.
