I've been visiting Bradenton for the last 10 years and every time we all go and enjoy this super fun place. My godparent's friends were asking them if they were out with their 9 years old... and (unfortunately) I'm not that young anymore! This is an amazing place to go, relax and laugh with your friends and family. I've got... More

We are locals who have enjoyed this attraction multiple times. It is beautifully maintained and super clean. In fact, a lot of it looks brand new. I could smell bleach in the water falls (no gross algae growth), and there was no garbage lying around. Brights lights, safe part of town. And there are benches at every hole so you... More

when the visitors get tired to the bigger attractions this is a nice place to take them too. It is also great to do if your looking to do something in town.

Family fun. Not crowded. Well maintained. Local residents make sure you show your I'd for discounts. Sign up for email coupons.

We have always enjoyed playing putt putt golf at the Smugglers Cove on Indian Shores in Pinellas County. It's challenging for all ages! We highly recommend it!

Flexible place, clean and everything works! We bought groupons for our 2 toddlers to play. My husband and I helped them out. Everything was smooth and hassle free. 2 years ago I went with my 7 yr old Godson and he enjoyed himself as well

I am local and have played here 2 times a month with the family for years. It is consistently fun, clean, and challenging. For the visitors, they have baby gators that you can feed. We still do it from time to time. Great value. Mystery holes for free games, ice cream, drinks...fun stuff!

This is a nicely laid out miniature golf place. Waterfalls and caves and variety of tricky holes to make it real fun. We go every time we are on vacation to the area. A little pricey but you do get a discount coupon after the game for another game if you want to play again.

We had a blast playing mini golf here. The course is spotless, the greens are very well maintained. The huge plus, for us, was getting to feed baby alligators :)
