Kiva Dunes

Kiva Dunes may be the most ambitious golf course in the region and is widely considered to be the top public golf course in the entire state.

Designed by former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate, the course has been featured in Golf Advisor, Golf Week, Golf Digest and Links Magazine. The large greens and lush fairways are spectacularly maintained.

Battle your way across tough sand terrain on hole 16, unruly traps on 3, 8, 13, 17, and water that looks beautiful from a distance but treacherous if you swing too wide. Player friendly bunkers are designed to assist golfers of all skill levels.

Kiva Dunes potentially has the most exceptional backdrop in all of the Gulf Shores. Dynamic pricing allows for players to golf on a budget during slower afternoons and seasons and save more by booking ahead of time. If you know your vacation dates already, you can book now to save big.  

Players can take advantage of lessons available from an award-winning PGA golf instructor. Plan your tee time by visiting the website and reviewing the hole layouts. The course is located at 815 Plantation Rd, Gulf Shores, AL 36542.
