This is a very nice mini golf place! Staff was very attentive. The hole's designs were very cool. Definitely would not recommend for a summer thing to do because of the heat! Nice mini store where you can get refreshments. If you happened to be in the military they honor military discount at 35%off! You can also feed the gator on site! Very clean and well maintained area.

My grandchildren love to go here because the holes are designed cleverly. They especially like shooting into the caves and walking through them. Their big treat at the end is buying treats to fit on a fishing pole to reach over a railing and watch the baby gators eat the bait.

this is a great mini golf course it is challenging but easy and fun but NOT boring. the scenery is nice but it is near the road. their are some elevations and bumps in the path and some stairs. there is a mystery hole where if you hole in 1 you win a free game. i did not spend time looking at the aligators. but remeber never go in the summer it is super hot. and never were sunglasses in the cave.

We were surprised to see that this Adventure Golf attraction had live alligators on display. I do not feel they are appropriately taken care of or that they have any reason to be at this place. This is not good for the animals obviously and people were throwing all kinds of food at them which obviously again is not good for the alligators. Anyone who cares about animals may be a bit disturbed by this as I was and cannot enjoy the otherwise great facility at this place. We will never return.

We have been going her since our daughters could barely use the shortest putters. It is a must GO whenever we are in LBK. My oldest has chosen it as one of her must do on birthday wishes. Staff is friendly. Facilities are clean and well maintained. A great outing.
