Should you risk driving your ball through rocks as a short cut or go the long, safe way around? Pirates Cove has very creative courses and pathways (up a hill, through caves, along waterfalls) but tries to cram too much into a small area. You could fit most courses into janitor's PH.D program. However, my little body found the tiny paths and stairways bordering jungle-gym fun. Expect bottle necking to occur most evenings due to an excellent location along tourist-infested I-Drive and is walking distance to other tourist-catered shops. It gets busier due to the staff's seemingly uncaring attitude to how many people were being let through at a time. (I danced a conga line many times with three couples while wa...

LOVED THIS PLACE! As a group of 4 big kid adults trying to spend some time outdoors before heading to the airport back home, this was definitely a hilariously fun, entertaining and challenging course. The pirate theme was great - the course had dynamic, challenging holes and it was very clean. The place was packed but we didn't have any trouble moving along and didn't bump into another group the whole time we played the 18 holes. We played teh Black Beard's Challenge course and even our 2 experienced "real" golfers had a blast. it was a great way to spend an hour and the staff were very helpful and it was a 30 min walk down I-drive from the Convention Center and a quick 10 min drive back. HIGHLY recommend th...

Mini golf, putt putting, whatever you call it, it's fun, easy, and inexpensive. There are a lot of golf courses in the US, but I gotta say, Pirate's Cove is one of the best I've ever been at. (And as a teenager, mini golf is something we do A LOT.) Pirate's Cove is a little more expensive than most mini golf places, but it's totally worth it. The holes are challenging, but more in a fun way than frustrating. Plus, if you get a hole-in-one on the last hole, you get a free round of mini golf! (Which worked well for me because I didn't pay my fee for the other course yet:) ) There's nothing like playing a good ol' game of mini golf, and I'd much rather do it here than any place in the 'Nati, especi anytime soon...

Sweet cornified golfing with a hint of pirate-ness YESSSSSSSSSSS! This place is literally an adventure...u first start off at the bottom to purchase your golf putts and there are mini baby gators everywhere below the waters. You have the option to feed them if u like or u can proceed to start the course with about 10$ and some change (sorry gators!) This place is outside so its nice to go on a perfect weathery day..since the course wraps around a mountain shaped top you can see the overrated I-drive with all the tourist (hello there.) During the course u will have to pay very close attention to the ball because once it rolls away it can either roll down a hill, into a waterfall, out a bridge, or on someone's...

WooHoo! Who doesn't love a good game of mini golf. When all those non athletes such as myself have a chance to shine. You would think Orlando being the tourist mecca of the States would have some pretty sweet courses and you would be right. Pirate's Cove is a chain of mini golf courses here in Orlando with several dotted around the area. This particular course is breathtaking to look at. Its set on a huge hill so getting around the course is an adventure in itself. Upon entering you will be greeted by baby alligators. Have you ever seen a baby alligator up close? They are adorable, and you can buy a handful of food and watch them gobble it up. Once on the course you will find the usual array of obstacles. Bu...

Pirate's Cove is the "other" major golf course attraction other than Congo River, and it is a little bit less expensive of the two, but in my opinion it is much more scenic, and it seems a little bigger as well. The Good: Beautiful scenery: Whoever did the landscaping here deserves a medal or two, because this place is beautiful. Beautiful trees, several waterfalls, and of course pirate landscapes make this place look lush and beautiful. Shady design: Unlike Congo River, which has little to no shade, Pairate's cove has many faux-pavilions and large trees that provide plenty of protection from the sun. Price is awesome: At $10 for adults and $9 for kids, it edges out Congo river by a few bucks, and is just as...

If you're in the mood for some good old-fashion fun, this putt-putt course is a place to check out.  Despite being located on International Drive--a very busy section of Orlando due to the theme parks and tourist destinations, Pirate's Cove was well designed and very fun to play. They have 2 courses--on...
