Kiva never disappoints. I played it 3 times in a week and it was in tremendous shape. The greens are still a little firm but rolled true and quick. The fairways and surrounds are perfect and the layout is always entertaining. All of this for $65! You've got to play it if you're in the area.

We saw the sign that they offered meals until 7pm and since we didn't want to go into town, we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! The server/bartender was attentive and helpful. She substituted items based on dietary restrictions and didn't seem bothered at all. Every one of the five of us had something different and... More

This course never disappoints. Yes, it is a first class golf course with many demanding holes, but it is extremely well maintained and has all the amenities to match the great course. Regardless of handicap, you'll enjoy your time at Kiva Dunes!!

May be more enjoyable in the spring and fall. It is hot on this course. There was some good breezes that saved the day in the shade, but there were also a few dead areas that were bad. Course was not overly difficult, and the scenery was good. They have brand new greens on the course so the are rock... More

The golf course is beautiful, with lots of water and sand, but the best part is how well the people treat their customers! The pro shop is very nice, with great merchandise, and Mark and David treat you like family. The cart guys are great, as are the marshals. The restaurant folks did a super job, with down-home friendliness combined... More

Undoubtably the premier golf club in the area. Our group are all members at a couple of upscale private clubs and this is on a par with them. Staff was wanting to help with anything. This club is not the muddy mess at the Craft Farms joint. Only place you need in the area with Steelwood. If you're a member... More

Played Kiva Dunes a few weeks after they reopened in November. The course had been closed for a couple of months for some course changes. I have played Kiva the last 5 years with our week long golfing outing to Gulf Shores and it had been one of the challenging courses we play. This year after the changes, I think... More
