This is my favorite mini golf place. Pirate environment, 18 holes. We were 3 adults and we had so much fun! There are also small alligators which you can feed buying some food in the spot. We will surely be back

This is a nice place to go on a date. There were many holes and the decor was fun. The course was challenging enough for some good ole healthy competition. We really had fun.

Nice 18 hole miniature golf course. A little expensive but if you play a second round its only 1.99 so it evens out. Nice people running the place as well
