The Rally: Death Valley to Sierra Star

June 23, 2021

24 hours. 36 holes. 205 miles. 8,214 feet. A lifetime of stories.

On June 23—one of the longest days of the year—we’ll attempt a rare feat: Play 18 holes at both the lowest and highest elevations in California. Join us on a 36-hole sprint, starting with 18 at Furnace Creek, the lowest golf course in the world, and ending at one of the highest in North America at Sierra Star.

The Oasis @ Death Valley

Furnace Creek

Sitting at 214 feet below sea level, you can’t tee it up any lower than Death Valley. The Broken Tee Society will be on the tee at first light, hoping to hole out before noon, when temps can bubble north of 120 degrees.  

Sierra Star Golf Course

Started from the bottom now we’re 8,000-plus feet above sea level. After a four-hour drive, we’ll throw away the rangefinder and let it fly at Sierra Star in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Eighteen holes later, take solace in knowing you just experienced all the highs and lows that California golf has to offer.
