Have always loved Kiva Dunes and the staff is so friendly, polite, and helpful. We had trouble, however, with the greens this trip. They wouldn't hold anything; even extremely high pitches. Bump and running didn't work, either, as bunkers guard a lot of the holes. Will return just because of the service and the layout, but am hoping that the... More

This course is very beautiful but also quite difficult. We played on a Saturday and it really was not busy. Nobody in front of us or behind us. We were surprised as the weather was gorgeous. The greens are enormous and quite fast. The course was pretty expensive to play so this might limit the average golfer.

Enjoyed the great condition of the course, but the greens are too fast for even the better amateurs. Huge greens with undulation making lots of 3 putts takes away from some of the enjoyment of an above average location.

This is a difficult course because of the tight layups near the greens. But the greens are as pure as they get. Loved putting on the greens. Hated the approach shots.Very beautiful but tight. Would play there again.

According to my husband, the golf expert…this is the most amazing course in the area. He can't say enough good things about Kiva and since I've ridden along beside him as his best "cart accessory", I have to agree. Something about that sea breeze and salt air and quietness of a seaside course.

Our family had a beach house rental in Fort Morgan Beach this past week, just down the road from Kiva Dunes. So, I took my son out for a round since it was a beautiful day the Monday before Thanksgiving this past week. The course was in excellent shape,. However, the organization there was doing some photo shoot around the... More

This is a beautiful golf course. Greens are tough and very fast. Starter was very nice, organized and helpful, think his hometown was Louisiana. Price was fair for the quality of the course. Those greens are tough so be ready for some 4 putts.

Last year when we visited the course was closed, as the were redoing it. My husband and I play golf at least three days a week. Several people told me I would not enjoy this course, they thought the fairways were too narrow. I did not find this to be true at all! The course was beautiful. Greens were in... More

Enjoyed this course very much. The course is in great shape and the greens are a little tricky. Ranger did a good job of getting people set for their tee times. Would play there again.
