It a must

Luv this course. Great layout. Always challenging. Sand in bunkers is top notch and you will play out of One or Two or Several. If it’s windy don’t expect to go low. Greens were in great shape.

Great Course Shot For Shot

This course is a shotmakers course! Great greens but pin placements can be difficult. My favorite course on the Gulf Coast!

From the time you get there until you leave the people there goes above and beyond to assist with anything. The course was by far the best course in Bama. Greens was some of the fastest I have ever played on. I will definitely be back. If you are in Alabama make sure you play this course.

Exceptional

Best overall golf experience I have ever had from the moment I stepped out of my car until I got back in the car to leave. Staff is awesome, friendly and everything is well organized. Sunny and 55 degrees made it a beautiful day on the course which is in fantastic shape. I can see why Kiva Dunes is rated the best course in Alabama.

a great course

I had forgotten how much undulation this course had. Fairways, greens. lots of it! Lots of distraction from hurricane clean up (only excuse I could think of for not playing well!!) Greens were lightning fast and true!

2nd round

This is an amazing course and when we revisit Alabama we will return to Kiva Dunes

One concerning issue is we were behind a 5-some which slowed pace for us and many to follow
