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.

We love playing here and they have updated all their greens and landscaping. Be sure to get a coupon for $1 off at any hotel their cards are in or online. We played there twice since I won a free game...Yippee! Have fun!

Every time I play here the employees are great! Must be a good place to work. The greens are spotless and the course is extremely well kept. Year after year and this place just gets better!

Putt putt course was not too hard but not to easy. Pirate themed. Had baby alligators you could feed since it was cold they did not want to move or eat. My daughter got 2 hole in ones and I also got one, at the end the staff roll a dice for some prize. Could putt putt again for only... More

Great course lots of fun after Thanksgiving dinner with the family! Live alligators too. No strollers allowed as the pathways are too narrow.

Love this course - staff are very friendly, course is immaculately designed with excellent themes and water features, plus they have baby frickin' alligators! Highly recommend going in the evening when it's cooler and it's all lit up, as the course is seriously impressive.
