This area gained it’s name because the land is so serrated, that only the devil could play golf on it.

The rough texture of the halite salt crystal formations is a result of years of erosion and sculpting from exposure to high winds and nature. Through exploratory holes drilled by the Pacific Coast Borax Company, prior to Death Valley becoming a national monument in 1934, it was discovered that the salt and gravel beds of the Devil’s Golf Course extend to a depth of more than 1,000 feet (300 m). Later studies suggest that in places the depth ranges up to 9,000 feet (2,700 m).
