Ranked the #1 Public Golf Course in Alabama, Kiva Dunes Golf Course winds around our secluded property, creating a challenging yet enjoyable experience. The layout was created by Jim Edgemon, the property’s developer, and longtime friend and former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate. Kiva Dunes is a high-caliber, nationally ranked resort perfect for the most professional players, but the casual golfer shouldn’t be deterred by its high status – the course is 100% open to the public! Not only unique in design and playability, the golf course offers a dynamic pricing arrangement for daily green fees.

Further adding to its appeal, the course is custom-fit with the balmy, coastal climate and topography of southern Alabama, culminating in the perfect beach golfing experience. Sugar-white sand traps and natural dunes allow the player total immersion in the coastal environs, and perfectly showcase the natural beauty of the Alabama gulf coast. In addition, the upgrade to Bermuda Tiff Eagle grass for the greens in the 2015 renovations created a smooth and constant playing surface that all golfers will appreciate.Further adding to its appeal, the course is custom-fit with the balmy, coastal climate and topography of southern Alabama, culminating in the perfect beach golfing experience.

Kiva Dunes is a superb links-style golf course and has a distinctive blend of signature par 3’s, challenging par 4’s and risk/reward par 5’s. An example of Kiva’s signature holes is the Par 4, 9th hole (playing 428 from the gold tee) requires an accurate tee shot to the edge of the pond, which leaves the golfer with a challenging shot of 150 yards over water. Though unique and challenging, even to experienced golfers, the course’s design is one that does not penalize every bad shot like many other high-ranked courses, lending to an overall relaxed playing experience.
