Played as a twosome the second week of June 2014 and really liked the course. The layout was challenging, but also fair for all levels of players. The greens had recently been verti-cut, so there was a top dressing of sand on all of them....More

Beautiful golf course, but windy play. Price is very reasonable and play was fast during October. Tight course with sand and water. Some blind shots.

I love Kiva Dunes, the rooms are awesome, staff first rate and the golf courses are always in amazing shape. I have been many of times and just love the town too. This is one place i could retire at and go play everyday..
