Beautiful course, excellent service and quick play time! We ate lunch at the clubhouse after our round. It was quite tasty and the service is excellent.

My boyfriend and I traveled with his family to this resort for two reasons: beach and GOLF. The men of the family are avid golfers, including our 5-year old nephew. We couldn't have asked for a better week - between taking short walks to a private beach with a well-maintained boardwalk (complete with interspersed showers for body and feet) to... More

We play here on the last day of our trip and wish it had been the first so we could play again. The course was in great shape and the layout was challenging but fair. The greens were some of the truest I've played. Already planning a return trip for this fall.

Played as a twosome the second week of June 2014 and really liked the course. The layout was challenging, but also fair for all levels of players. The greens had recently been verti-cut, so there was a top dressing of sand on all of them. That, however, did not effect the ball stoppage or the speed of the greens. I... More

Beautiful golf course, but windy play. Price is very reasonable and play was fast during October. Tight course with sand and water. Some blind shots.

I love Kiva Dunes, the rooms are awesome, staff first rate and the golf courses are always in amazing shape. I have been many of times and just love the town too. This is one place i could retire at and go play everyday..

Beautiful course in great condition. I was advised to bring extra balls due to all the water and marsh conditions on the course and I donated plenty of balls. A mis hit and you will never find the ball again. Staff was very friendly and helpful from the bag drop, pro-shop, bartenders and even the groundskeepers. I'd go back in... More

Played golf six days in Alabama with two foursomes and we unanimously agreed Kiva Dunes was our least favorite. Fairways were hard, ball did not set up and greens were bumpy and roll not consistent. Not a good value at $100 per round; maybe worth $35. Where the number one rating came from is beyond imagination.

We golf 36 holes here the first week of November. This is a beautiful and challenging course and gives a nice advantage to women. Beautiful white sand runs throughout the course. The bunkers are like war bunkers. Some of them are so deep, wooden steps were installed to get in and out. The first 18 holes was a learning experienced... More
