We enjoyed playing a round of mini golf here. Course is well kept and nice add on where you can feed the live alligators. Only criticism would be it seemed a little pricey.

Typical miniature golf course in Florida, but they do sell cans of beer to enjoy while you play. At @ $18 per golfer, I would consider it a bit expensive, but most things are here. The feeding of small gators would have been neat, but it was too cold n our visit.

This is a fun, family-friendly mini-golf course. The decoration is top-notch. The holes are pretty easy, so the little ones won't get too frustrated or discouraged. The prices are outrageous. $14 for adults and $13 for kids? It gets a little crowded and slow during peak times, but what's the hurry? The course is well-maintained, though it'd be nice if... More

There is no doubt that this is one of the finest mini-golf establishments that I've been to. The ambiance can't be beat, and the course is all sorts of fun. They even had live alligators that you could feed right before the 1st hole! They were only about 2-3 feet long, but still there was around 20 of them in... More

Kids and teens love this place! Been coming here for years. Thanks to Vicki for being a great host. The landscape is beautiful and there are lots of little anoles to watch while you wait for your turn.

One of the best mini-golf places ever! My nephew and I have been to quite a lot of them throughout the US and were impressed by the tucked away holes and fun 'pirate' signs. We did not feed the alligators-while nice to see them-not the main attraction for us. The only cause that out ranked this one was the Smugglers... More

Fantastic layout, very challenging and lots of fun. A bit pricey at nearly $15 for first round, but a second round played the same day is only $1.99.

If you like actual putting- you'll like this. If you like mini golf windmills or dinosaurs- you'll be disappointed . Very clean and well kept up. Expensive for mini golf - over $20 for the 2 of us, even with a $1 discount.

Very cool place for all ages. Very clean and well maintained. They have live alligators you can feed and lots of water falls, caves and lots of steps to go up so beware if you have any physical limitations or if you need to take a stroller or wheelchair you won't be able to do this course. Definitely will return... More

After a nice dinner we stopped by for couples putt-putt match. We have played two of the other Smugglers Cover courses in the past. This one is just as good and I would say even more challenging. If you are looking for a good putt-putt/mini-golf course this is a great course.
