Ever played golf below sea level?

Well I’m looking forward to it in May this year.  MrsG and are taking a holiday to the US West Coast and are thinking of driving from San Francisco to Scottsdale and along the way stopping at the Furnace Creek Resort to experience playing golf in Death Valley.

The course is 214ft below sea level so I’m looking forward to seeing how far less the ball flies.  A couple of years ago we played at the Sedona Golf Resort which was the complete opposite, it was at 3,000ft, and the ball went flipping miles.  I was hitting a 9 iron around 160 yards (120-130 yards normally).  It was fun.

Anyone got any experience of playing at Furnace Creek?
