Sponsor Highlight of the Month: Kiva Dunes Golf Course
Who are they?
The Kiva Dunes Resort is home to the Kiva Dunes Golf Course, also known as the number one course in Alabama. Kiva Dunes Golf Course is always at the top of the list when people talk about the best golf in Alabama, and it’s easy to see why. This gorgeous layout winds through a secluded piece of land in an unforgettable setting. The links-style course was ranked the number one public golf course in Alabama by Golf Advisor in 2017, and over the years, the course has received many awards from Golf Digest, Golf Week and Links Magazine. The layout was created by Jim Edgemon, the property’s developer, and longtime friend and former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate.

Why should you check them out?
The unique, vibrant track at Kiva comes in at just over 7,100 yards of play area, running primarily from east to west, and has been quoted as “very natural, with a lot of exposed sand and gnarly scrub oak.” The manicured course winds through acres of secluded, coastal greenery and natural marsh set in a pristine conservation area on the Fort Morgan peninsula of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Kiva Dunes is rife with unmatched shot-making opportunities and challenges sure to entice any avid golfer.
The course has a distinctive blend of signature par 3s, challenging par 4s and risk/reward par 5s. An example of Kiva’s signature holes is the par-4 9th hole (playing 428 from the gold tee) that requires an accurate tee shot to the edge of the pond, which leaves the golfer with a challenging shot of 150 yards over water.
