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!

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.

Great little golf course and loved the alligators. WE went on a Sunday night and it was busy, busy, busy. I would probably try to go on a weeknight next time to avoid so many crowds. The scenery and decorations were great and certainly made for a fun, inspired atmosphere. The course is well maintained and they even have a... More

Nice course, clean. The alligator exhibit was nice. A little pricey, but not if you do the second round for $1 I think it was. We enjoyed it but beware, if you have mobility issues or can't climb steps, this isn't the place for you.

The staff were friendly, the course was in great shape, the holes were challenging enough but not too hard, fun 80's music playing on the sound system, cool stupid aligators to look at and feed if you want. They had educational signs about the gators too. One of ourbparty won a free game at the end for having a hole... More

Good place to spend a couple hours. Facility is spacious and well maintained. The holes are challenging in a good way. It really is a little adventure as you make your way through the course. It was cool feeding the gators and was only an extra $3. You also have an opportunity to win win a free game if you... More

My husband and kids love to play mini-golf on vacation. While on our recent trip they found Smuggler's Cove. There is only one course option, but it looked interesting so they wanted to give it a try. The cost was around $11 or $12 a person, with the option of paying extra (maybe $2) to feed the juvenile alligators they... More

Spent a good part of an afternoon playing miniature golf with my grandson and other family members. We had a great time, fun place to spend an afternoon with kids or teens.
