Kiva Dunes Beach Resort and Golf Course


Kiva Dunes, the highest-rated public golf course in Alabama, opened in 1995 and was designed by US Open Champion, Jerry Pate. Perched on the stunning 32-mile long Fort Morgan Peninsula, the course is set in a conservation area bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine Bon Secour Bay. With its beautiful scenery and championship design, Kiva Dunes has been the top choice for golfers for more than two decades.

Kiva Dunes is not just any beach resort. Situated just a few miles away from the world-famous beaches of Gulf Shores, the resort offers the perfect balance of relaxation and play. From its luxurious vacation rentals to its multiple pools, restaurants, and beachfronts, Kiva Dunes stands out among resorts in the area.

The jewel in Kiva Dunes' crown is the 18-hole Kiva Dunes Golf Course. Designed by renowned golf architect Earl Stone, this par-72 championship course has been awarded four stars by Golf Digest. Its complex and challenging terrain make it an excellent choice for any golfer, no matter their level of skill.

For the most ambitious golfers, Kiva Dunes also offers a sports academy, staffed by PGA-certified professionals ready to help golfers hone their skills. The practice area allows golfers to perfect their technique, while its indoor putting green is the perfect place to get a feel for the undulating greens of the championship course.

Kiva Dunes is the ideal destination for any golfer looking for a relaxing vacation. With its combination of luxurious accommodations, multiple pools, tennis courts, restaurants (the Kiva Grill and the Kiva Beach Club), and beachfronts, Kiva Dunes is the perfect place for an advanced golfer to brush up their game or a beginner to hone their skills.

Beach Access at Kiva Dunes

Beach Access is divided into three distinct zones – West Boardwalk, East Boardwalk, and the Kiva Beach Club. Each area has its own unique features and activities, and each comes with its own set of rules and regulations.

At the West Boardwalk, visitors can enjoy lounger rentals (seasonal) that are available for rent and also bring their own BYOB food and drinks. It’s a great spot for a casual beach day with plenty of opportunities for relaxation.

Meanwhile, the East Boardwalk is completely BYOB. Visitors should bring their own chairs, umbrellas, tents, and coolers for a more intimate beach experience. 

Finally, the Kiva Beach Club Beach. The Kiva Beach Club provides families with the perfect opportunity to hit the pause button and spend quality time together in a setting that encourages rest and relaxation. Enjoy the convenience of the full-service restaurant and bar. The large salt water pool, hot tub, and private beach access give families plenty of options to explore. The KBC enforces a “No outside coolers or food from outside the club” rule.

When developers first laid eyes on the 280-plus acre parcel of land along the Gulf of Mexico that is now Kiva Dunes Golf & Beach Resort, they knew something special was in store. The unspoiled sand dunes and pristine white beach provided an opportunity to create a coastal community unlike any other. From its humble beginnings, Kiva Dunes has been meticulously evolving, and the latest addition – Kiva Village – is here. Featuring 30 completed and completely renovated condominiums overlooking the Jerry Pate-designed golf course, Kiva Dunes is now home to one of Golf Digest’s “Top 60 Resort Courses.”

Good stewards of the land, the developers have donated the entire course to the North American Land Trust, ensuring it will never go away. Pate’s design respects the environment by integrating the natural terrain of the Gulf Coast, and the course offers a one-of-a-kind golf experience.

Beyond the award-winning course, Kiva Dunes offers every amenity desired in a luxury resort. The resort features a tennis court, four pools, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and meeting space. Of course, the best amenity is Kiva’s private, white sand beach. Exclusively available to owners and guests, is the Kiva Beach Club which boasts a Gulf-side saltwater pool, pavilion, and even food and beverage service.

Kiva Dunes Golf & Beach Resort is a unique, coastal paradise providing a world-class golf experience and an array of activities and amenities. Come experience the best of the Gulf Coast and create lasting memories with friends and family.
