Kiva Dunes Golf Course is always at the top of the list when people talk about the best golf in Alabama, and it’s easy to see why. This gorgeous track winds through a secluded piece of land, presenting incredible shotmaking opportunities in an unforgettable setting. The links style course was ranked the number one public golf course in Alabama by Golf Advisor in 2017, and over the years, the course has received many awards from Golf Digest, Golf Week and Links Magazine. The layout was created by Jim Edgemon, the property’s developer, and longtime friend and former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate. The two share a love of the sport, which led to the partnership that resulted in the No. 1 golf course in Alabama: Kiva Dunes.
