I went to Smugglers Cove with my adult children during our last night in the area. We have played lots of miniature golf courses and this one was one of the most beautiful. The course was challenging. We enjoyed watching the baby alligators. The owners are nice people and everything was clean. My son did a great job reading the... More

We felt the course was challenging but not too challenging. Enjoyed the multi-levels which may be difficult for those with movement issues. Friendly staff and the bonus is about a dozen contained baby alligators to feed and watch.

great minigolf place, but number one minigolf is next door. one point down for feeding the gators attraction, which is in reality feeding the fish attraction.

The course has new greens and trim at the tee areas since the last time I went. Being in season meant a backup of 4 - 5 groups at each hole. The disappointment came when we won a free game at the end of our second go round only to be told that because it was a second round the... More

This would be a great course for younger families, it was a bit easy for us. The theme was nice, but didn't care for the black/murky looking water areas. There are also alligators to feed/look at, another reason this place would be great for young kids!

So we enjoy miniature golfing as a Family and while vacationing in the Fort Myers Beach area we played all three courses in the immediate area during our stay. Although we enjoyed playing all three, the consensus of the Family is Smugglers Cove is our favorite. We thought it the nicest in terms of features and cleanliness as well as... More

This mini golf course had a cool theme and fun holes all throughout. Nothing too easy or too hard. Was a little pricey at $14 per person. Enjoyed the course and their friendly staff.

This is a great family friendly course! It was easy to find, right on the main road. When you turn in you don't know if you go left or right ( at least at night). Go left! Well lighted parking close to course. The course was a lot of fun for young and old. Kids loved it. Not the cheapest,... More

Albeit expensive at 13.99 a head, the course was well kept up and interesting. I didn't particularly care for the kept alligators and the perpetual "upsell" (water? Just another $. Feed for the gators? Just another $$. Personalized golf ball? Just another $$.). We had fun--18 1/2 holes just under 1 hour.

We all thought the mini golf was fine, but kids loved finishing for baby alligators most of all !!!!!
