Mini Golf with Live Alligators

We found out about this place from a friend. It is a mini golf course, and there are live alligators in a pond next to the course. You are able to purchase food for them at the concession stand and you can feed them off of a fishing pole! I guess my expectations were too high, I was hoping they would be scattered throughout the course, but they were contained to one area. A bit of a bummer, but still, how many mini golf courses have live alligators? Overall it was a fun time.
