Went here mid-August with 3 children. Location was great and feeding the alligators is always fun but way over priced! For myself and 3 kids (with a coupon) it cost $52 which I think was too much. Additionally, I don't know what it is about the layout but it is extremely hot! We went at night and the night itself... More

Decided to try mini golf while on vacation. Asked Siri she directed us to this place. Started out hot but as the night went on it got more humid. The alligators were an added feature to see. The kids fed them from fishing poles that held food we purchased at desk. There was an odor coming from water features here... More

Go here when I'm in town with family. I love it. Feed the gators! It's fun! Recommend! Course is fun with lots of different geometrical obstacles. Maintained well. Clean bathrooms and cold beverages. Snacks too!

Really fun mini-golf course plus the chance to feed the gators. Nothing too challenging, just the right amount of fun.

It's just not vacation without one visit to play putt putt, this particular place was close to our condo. It was pricey but feeding the alligators was cool. We enjoyed the set up of the course and had a great time. Would go back again.

Ok... So every time we go to a beach, a mini golf night (or multiple nights) is a must. We have been on other trips to this area. It is a bit pricey. $12.99 per person for ages over 12. This time I was a little more disappointed. The waterfalls were not even operating. No water running meant standing water... More

WAY OVER PRICED! Family of 6 almost $100.00. Poor drainage. Extremely wet Greens. Alligators feeding was decent.

Way too expensive for the experience. Felt rushed the whole time due to a large group behind us. There also was no water. Part of the experience is the waterfalls at a pirate golf course. Everything was drained but still soaking wet. Feeding the gators is way over priced!

Putt putt is always my daughters and my tradition on vacation. This was a nice little course in very good condition. Alligators were cool and you can feed them. There were 2 adults one teenager and 2 kids. We stopped at night and it was packed. The guys working were super nice and told us what to expect as wait... More

Smuggler's Cove was great. Our almost 8 year old played 2 rounds and it was fun for the whole family. June is hot so go early. They open at 9 AM.
