The is the most beautiful, well kept, interesting golf course we have ever been to. Super clean, new turf, beautiful plantings, plenty of benches to rest, very interesting elements to explore! You will love it! We went at sunset and enjoyed the view, too.

I went to Smugglers Cove w/ my family of 5 + 2 grandparents...cost $95. Miniature golf isn't cheap anymore, but what is? The grounds are beautiful & we were all impressed w/ the landscaping. There are a lot of stairs (177 to be exact, I believe) but they're all spread out and my parents had no problem. There's also quite... More

Well maintained and fun course, our family of four loved it! The price is fairly expensive...look for the $1.00 coupon per person on their website or in local tourists brochures.

This is a great family activity. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the course isn't too hard for even young children. It's really expensive for the first round - $16 for adults - but whatever number plays the first time, that number (not necessarily the same people so the adults can switch around) can return the same day for $2...

9 relatives had a fun putt putt game, lots of fun had by all. We also bought alligator food which was kind of neat, but the kids felt bad for the alligators, as they kept biting each other fighting over the food.

This is putt putt old school style how it should be. Fun courses and fair amount of exercise. Great for all ages! We will definately be back for a re-match.

My adult son and I always play miniature golf when on vacation. He liked this course, but I was not excited by it. There were many stairs to climb up and down, so it was not very "senior-friendly". The holes were fairly straight forward; I like obstacles that move or are theme related. The alligators that are advertised were hard... More

There are, indeed, live baby alligators you walk by (safely placed and protected). The miniature golf course offered a wide variety of fun designs. A few of the holes were inside caves; several took you up and down hills. We had a lot of fun and it wasn't crowded this time of the year. This and a pizza made a... More
