Description
Guests of the Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley golf on the all-grass golf course. Built originally in 1927, it is the lowest golf course in the world, at 214 feet below sea level. At the end of the course are several horses stabled in a corral. Farther in the distance is the Furnace Creek Inn sitting at the base of mountains. The ranch was a working ranch in the late 1800s until it was made into a hotel in the 1930s. The inn opened in the 1927.
