I found this a god experience for both my grandson and myself, as we are both very competetive. The holes are set up very well and provide various design to the holes. the small gators provide a very unique experience.

We've been coming here for years! Vicki is the nicest host and a cheerful staff member. Buy the bait and feed the gators.

Very good mini golf layout and reasonably priced. Very courteous checkin and a fun course to play. Well maintained and a nice touch with the live alligators.

I recently visited this course about a month or two ago on a family vacation and had a blast. I took a review card down with the two sweethearts names who helped me and my family have a great visit to Florida. Chastin and Jason were both so very sweet and very enthusiastic towards our experience there at Smugglers. Not... More

This golf course is like NO other. First off the holes are twisting and intertwined where you cannot see where your ball will end up; which is half the fun. The course is laid out up hills; through caves and down through water falls. Amazing! There are plenty of benches along the way to help you get rest and shade.... More

Nice course. We visited their other location on our previous vacation and I would recommend either highly. Only complaint is it was hard to find the entrance from the parking lot.

We had a great time, the kids enjoyed it quite a bit. I found it too expensive at $12 per adult. Unfortunately, my kids were too excited about it and couldn't say no. They had fun though.

Went to this course last night as a result of a Trip Advisor review.... Could not have been more pleased! The staff was very friendly and the course was really great! Really a step above a typical miniature golf course. They put a lot of thought (and money) into the design of this course. It is not easy, but not... More
