So putt putt is taken to a whole new level when you're given food triangle over a baby gator and get to feel it tug against the line and stick on which you're holding the food. It is a pretty fun course as well, once you've finished with the gator feeding. FYI... small pack of food is $2.99- get 4... More

My son and I went during our vacation. The course is great and on many levels. There are a few caves that get you out of the sun. The best part is the live alligators that you can feed for additional cost. It is not cheep but you can come back any time that day for 1.99

The golf was fun and the place was clean, but even with coupon it hurt the wallet. It was good family fun for an hour.

My family loves mini golf, this is the most elaborate course we have ever seen. It was very clean. We counted at least 18 alligators in the pen. So much fun.

Wanted to take the 3 yr. old grandson mini golfing while in town. Layout was great, golfed in the early afternoon so no one else was around. Thought $43.00 for 2 adults and a 3 yr. old was a bit much, then they ask if you want to pay extra to feed the alligators. At the price it should be... More

The Mini Putt itself was great and the place was well maintained and laid out. Smugglers cove has live baby crocs that you can feed which they try and present as an educational experience. I prefer to enjoy and educate on wildlife in the wild and florida has plenty of that.

Ok, maybe I am not really objective when it comes to pirate stuff but this miniature golf was lots of fun. My son really loves everything to do with pirates and the way they themed the place was really nice and looks well maintained. Price: Prices are on the high side but when you decide to go for a second... More

My wife and I went here on a last minute decision and had an absolute blast. I would say Smugglers Cove is suitable for all ages, plus they have a live gator pit were you can feed them (for an additional $3). Each hole was themed around a pirate adventure with cute little tips and tricks written on the side.... More

I haven't been mini golfing in a while, but it seemed pricey - about $20 per person. They had many putter sizes to fit everyone in the family. We went at night. The flowers smelled amazing. The holes were all very creative. The kids, 6&9, had a blast.
