Smuggler’s Cove Mini Golf in Madeira Beach

Published on 07/25/21: Do you call it Goofy Golf or Mini Golf? Well, either way, this is one of Colt’s favorite activities and living on the beach side has certainly provided us more opportunities w/ two courses nearby. And to be clear, we don’t post about every place we visit (golf or otherwise), Colt has the bar set high for you all! That being said, we love Smuggler’s Cove at 15395 Gulf Blvd in Madeira Beach! As a mini-golf aficionado, Colt says he loves this one because “the pirate ship is awesome, holes are really fun and there are real alligators”.

I will say, we’ve been to some that are pretty much just hitting a ball straight into a hole, where-as here you must navigate bridges, caves and other obstacles. They spent some extra dollars on the theme and we approve! Plus, they have alligators that you can feed. Check out our stories for the alligator feeding!

Beer and Wine!

An additional perk that some adults might find appealing, Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Golf serves beer and wine just like a real golf course! Does someone drive around asking if you need cold one? Not that we saw, but still a nice touch. Upon check-in, simply buy your drinks and take with you. There are plenty of places to set your drinks at each hole.
Another plus. They sell ice cream and snacks. With families, at any given time, someone is seemingly hungry. So in this case you can golf and avoid anyone becoming hangry. Colt and I evidently become the Hulk when hungry, so Amy keeps snacks in her purse in an attempt to avoid. Anyone else get a bit ornery without food?

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
