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 :)

This was a nice place but kind of expensive for 2 adults and 1 child to play golf and feed the little alligators $43.00. We did have fun...

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:)
