If you haven’t been to Golf N Gator, you are missing out! We are Cocoa Beach residents (both my husband and I graduated from CBHS) and now we have three young sons, ages 8, 6 & 2. They love this place so much that we can’t even drive past without a meltdown! I take them there quite often, but it’s a great place for our babysitter to take them for an outing, too! They have such an awesome variety of animals to learn about- not just the awesome gators! We have had multiple birthday parties here over the past few years. Safari Todd does an amazing job teaching the kids about snakes, tarantulas, scorpions, birds, monikers, etc. The kids get to touch and hold the animals, which is a great experience for them! My middle son fell in love with snakes the minute he held his first one! The putt putt here is great fun… I’m so happy my two oldest boys are finally at an age to really enjoy playing! They mean business when we play now, no more running around hitting the ball aimlessly! They are in it to win it! Haha! Overall, this place is definitely worth the money and the memories made are PRICELESS!
Five of us went and had a blast. The gators were easily visible and you could even feed them a hot dog on a string if you want. (Or watch other people feeding them if you so wish) We had a groupon deal and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bathrooms were clean, and even have fancy faucets that look like old time water pumps. The course was well kept and we played the more difficult side twice. Pricing is on par with other courses in the area and given the gators and various other animals to interact with its a great place to bring guests who arent used to the natural Florida wildlife. The person in the gator suit was energetic and got many honks from the passing traffic with his/her dancing and waving.
The mini-golf was fine, kids enjoyed it - but was quickly overshadowed by a very rude employee who was handling the alligators. She was extremely rude to my 9 year old daughter for asking a simple question of if the lady was hurting the gator with pulling it by its tail! And YES - the gator was hurt because there was fresh blood on my daughters arm after holding the gator (from a cut on the gator). My daughter actually left crying because this lady was so rude and condescending when talking to her and her 8 year old cousin.This person should not work with the public - especially with children! We were there early on Saturday, April 9th. Will not recommend due to the rude employees.
The spinners to challenge the game were great ideas. The course could have been a little more challenging, but the grounds were very pretty, with the parrots on the background, it was am experience you couldnt find anywhere else. Holding the gator was also pretty neat, if not rather alarming if youve never done it before, ask a question about why is pupils suddenly dilated and the lady takes the gator to put back in the pen instead, but very neat
The golf is fine, but they abuse the baby alligators for the sake of taking pictures with the customers. The baby alligator has his mouth taped shut tight all day in a tiny cage like all the others without being able to properly breathe, no water, nor food for pleasure of the people taking photos with him and paying the store for it. The alligators need to open their mouth to regulate their body temperature. CRUELTY. Dont pay for pictures.
What a great time! Daughter and son in law in town for a week wanted to do something other than the beach. The place was spotless and very family friendly. They played all 36 holes as well as the kids (7 and 9) getting to hold both an alligator and a tarantula. We old folks just played 18 then rested in air conditioned comfort and exchanged "up north" stories with the manager. We will be back for sure!
Too hot to golf but the gaters were cool. The swamp course goes right by where they were keeping the new batch of smaller ones. According to the workers the are a little different. What they meant is they were aggressive. They rushed the fence on the first hole with their tiny mouths open and hissing. It was a very cool and exciting experience. Skip the golf if its hot and pay to hold a gator!
$$35 for 2 adults and a child to play 18 holes. This is supposed to be a family place but they have adult themed stuff playing on the TV. I dont need my son hearing about a young girls selling her virginity on TV. When we brought this to their attention they didnt care. I really wish we went somewhere else. The owner did not care when we spoke with him and just walked away. BEWARE of this place
Great place to spend an afternoon with the family on vacation. Very clean, very friendly staff, and affordable. Nice selection of animals to see in clean and well kept enclosures/spaces. You can mini golf, feed the alligators, look at various snakes, lizards and birds. There is also a mining area for the children to sift through pay dirt and mine for gemstones. Will definitely go again!!!!
Lots of cool stuff and animals to see. Theres a place to sift for gem stones and to feed alligators. You can hold an alligator as well, which is neat. The only reason I give it 4/5 stars instead of 5/5, is because its $12 to get a picture while holding the alligator (the holding is free, only the picture costs money). Other than that, its a pretty nice place.
My family and I love this place. They have it all! You can golf, pan for gems, and hold a live alligator all in the same day! My husband and I came here as teens and now that has become the Golf N Gator we come all the time! The whole establishment is clean and new. They serve beer and wine. The staff are always helpful. It is always a wonderful time!
We had fun. There are 2 different courses to choose from. The holes are not too difficult. A lot of interesting scenery, my 4 year old loved the cave. There are baby alligators that you can feed and hold. We skipped that part. We did feel it was a little pricey for 2 adults, guess they have to make up the money somewhere when the kids are "free"
The guys running this place really care about the animals in their park. Was pretty cool playing putt putt right next to the tortoise :). This place does need some maintenance and refreshing, as its age shows. I feel this might be because putt putt is just not as popular as it used to be (probably because it requires kids to be outside :P )
My kids and I absolutely loved this place! Weve only played one of the courses so far but well be back soon to play the other. The quality of the wildlife is simply amazing, so be prepared to hold and/or feed a live gator! Also, the course design is a work of genius with many vertical elements and stunning scenery at every hole.
The staff was friendly. I loved the reptiles and birds they had on display for education. The caretaker was very knowledgeable in her reptiles. The course was fun and got to feed fish and the gators. At the end we posed for a picture holding a gator. I would of put five stars if the course was a bit more challenging.
