This is a beautiful course, with fun obstacles for each hole. Can purchase soft drinks or beer and bring with when you golf, and there are snacks and ice cream as well. You get to see and feed baby alligators at the end!

This place was a blast and the lady at the front was very pleasant. The course could use a cleaning. Use a good evening overall.
