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 :)

It has nothing special, nothing more than every other mini golf course. The price is very expensive. If you have a family of four plan on spending at least $50 for a round of mini. I wish they would make it more cost effective for the kids, give them something they can afford to do locally.

Arrived to play just a few minutes before closing... Greeted by very friendly staff who obliged... Got to feed the dozen or so alligators that waiting to be fed just before the 1st hole:) Challenging course with a wide variety of elements to please the novice to seasoned putters:)

This mini-golf course is one of the best I have ever been to, and I've been to lots!!! My husband and I had a great time and were impressed with the way the course was built and maintained. Each hole was a little different, there were several built into caves, some next to waterfalls, and one that looked like a... More

My wife and I took our daughter and 3 year old granddaughter on our short vacation to Florida. We had a good time. Feeding the alligators with food on a pole was fun especially for our granddaughter. Course was fun, a little water was on the green in a few small places but not affecting the game. Other folks at... More
