My husband & I went putt-putt golfing across the street from our condo one night. The late June temps made it more of a challenge than I would have liked. The evening was so muggy & hot! Even the alligators weren't moving. We talked to other families as we waited our turn to golf each hole. My husband managed so many holes in one that I thought he had been taking lessons! We managed to make it through the entire course & back to our condo before the rain started! For once I can say we didn't have any trouble with bugs/mosquitoes/no-see-ums. The only real problem they can fix is that the shrubbery is so dense & sticking out on some holes you can't see where you are hitting & the golf balls end up in the bushes. We helped the family in front of us retrieve their lost golf balls more than once!

It's a little pricey -- around $50 for a family of 4 -- but they really put a lot of work and effort into the course. The kids really enjoyed feeding the baby alligators, too. If we should be so lucky as to visit Indian Shores again, I'm sure we'd pay another visit to Smuggler's Cove.

We have played here for the past three years. The kids love it, its not very crowded when we go since we try to go early before the Florida humidity sets in. There are 10 of us in our group and we all compete for the "hole in one" but I will say feeding the alligators are the kids favorite.

We did this with two kids on a sweltering afternoon. We're thankful for the shady spots but there weren't enough for the hot sun. Feeding the alligators is fun for an extra fee.

Cost us $60+ for the golf. We won a free round for getting a hole in one on a secret hole but it was only for one person. In the end we didn't use it as the cost was so much to begin with.

Great course, a little pricey, but if you have the energy for two rounds, it's not that bad. Well maintained and well laid out.
