Welcome to Dove Canyon
Welcome to Dove Canyon Community, a secluded, beautiful community surrounded by the majestic mountains that create the spectacular canyons. Dove Canyon showcases as a premier gated community in south Orange County, California. Upscale single family detached homes (1,252) are built around an eighteen-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course.
Along with acres of trees and greenbelt, there are miles of nature trails, panoramic views of the mountains and a neighboring 16-acre lake, a large community pool, multiple tennis courts, and membership opportunities at the private Dove Canyon Golf Club. Our gated and patrolled community (24/7) is designed to provide a sense of peace.  A destination for golf enthusiasts, families, and retirees, Dove Canyon is within minutes of shopping, schools, restaurants and a short drive to all that Orange County has-to-offer; including a variety of world renowned beaches.
