Was fortunate enough to visit Smugglers Cove Mini Golf. As a professional mini-golfer, I can assure you the course is in fantastic shape! The new “feed the gators” attraction was interesting and worth the small fee. Not only are the holes well-maintained, but the layout...More

We went after dinner and had to wait every hole. The course is interesting and fun even with the wait. We watched others who paid to feed the alligators. The cost is pricey so look for coupons.

Nice and clean facility. Person working the front desk was very friendly and helpful. There is a place to feed the alligators. We did not do that part. It cost extra. We were impressed at how nice and smooth the putting greens were

They have baby alligators you can feed from a pole (for a fee). The golf was a typical mini golf. What was over the top was the cost--I thought it was way over priced--I guess you have a monopoly since the only other one is...More
