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

There were 4 of us and we played 18 holes of putt put on a very challenging course! The place was in excellent condition and the staff was friendly. We had a great time! They have live alligators you can "feed". They charge $4 for what looked like chunks of dog food and in the weather (60's) gators lay around.... More

My wife and I played both courses on Gulf Boulevard north of Madeira Beach. They are beautifully laid out. Both have a hole were you can see, and feed if you wish, many alligators. There are a lot of steps involved, good for a mine workout while you mini golf. Sign up on their website for coupons and deals. One... More

Good fun place to go. a little pricy to play putt-putt. It is close to where we stay so it was good. A place the whole family can go.

The holes where interesting and fun without being too difficult. There are 178 steps (up and down) that are required to finish the course, so It is... More

Take the family or a date. it's always fun. The staff is enthusiastic and the course will give you some challenges. And if you round the corner and come upon a nest of alligators staring your way, just smile and have your picture taken. It is what you come to Florida for - fun in the outdoors with the sea...

We have always enjoyed golfing here. Even now as my kids have grown up, we still always plan one trip here. The place is kept in good shape and there are many challenging holes. Good for all ages. The kids always love the pirate theme.

We have gone to this course years ago. They keep the place immaculate!! We were pleasantly surprised. We had a lot of fun, but be prepared to walk stairs,,, a lot of them. They even have a sign up telling you how many stairs there are. It was a fun few hours for our family.
