My wife and I usually play putt putt everytime we go on vacation and this was one of the nicest courses we have played at. It is a little pricey and I can see how a large family may not want to pay it, but for the 2 of us it seemed fair. (Note to managers: Maybe a lower cost... More

We've been to Smugglers Cove three times now. The facility is nice and the alligators are nice, but it's just so expensive. My family had coupons and still paid $48 for two adults and 2 kids. If we wanted to feed the alligators, you needed to pay extra. It's just crazy for an average family to have to pay so... More

Smugglers cove has 2 locations, Bradenton & Sarasota. They are both very nice, clean mini golf locations. The awesome part is that for a little extra you can actually feed alligators!! Very nice family place.

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.
