    The Kiva Dunes is a public golf course featuring 7092 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 72 par, a course rating of 79.3 and a slope rating of 132 on Bermuda grass.

Kiva Dunes sits on an extraordinarily beautiful piece of real estate which lies right on the Gulf of Mexico, offering its visitors an epic opportunity to play their favorite game while enjoying a magnificent view. The design and the routing are top notch, being masterfully created by a former US Open champ (thats Jerry folks) and this golf course has become well known for its glamorous beauty all around the Gulf Coast, being consistently ranked high by numerous publications among the finest golf courses in the United States. Kiva Dunes is all about golf in its purest form, together with spectacular beauty, as the golf course is built through a natural wildlife area, meandering via pristine lakes and sand dunes, offering an unforgettable and exceptional golfing experience regardless of your skill level.

    Kiva Dunes has been ranked Alabamas number 1 public golf course by both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest and also featured in USGA Golf Journal, Senior Golf, LINKS, GolfSouth and Golf Course Living, being a must-play for any golf aficionado visiting the Gulf Coast. With its beautiful scenery, though the golf course itself doesnt offer an ocean view, its outstanding conditions and challenging layout, the Kiva Dunes golf course can be defined as pure coastal golf, being built around patches of roughed-up coastal vegetation and existing dunes, while the omnipresent wind which blows non-stop across the property provides for golfers playing here the courses most distinctive quality.
