Come and embark on a journey and be taken back in time to live the life of a smuggler. With 18 holes of action-packed adventure, experience Bournemouth’s past as you smuggle your ball past treacherous rocks, church ruins and waterfalls. Packed with challenges, the themed course is perfect for some friendly family rivalry – you can even keep score and share your victory with the new Scorecard App. Bournemouth Seafront provides the perfect backdrop for a smuggler, so pop down and see if you have what it takes!
We’re delighted to announce we won silver for Large Attraction Of The Year in Dorset Tourism Awards 2020.

Absolutely fantastic. This is the first crazy golf course we've been able to play properly as a family as it truly wheelchair accessible. Well done!
Fantastic fun course, friendly staff, great location and good value. Will definitely be back!
A brilliant experience and great customer service. We went during the time of social distancing and they were doing everything they could to ensure the safety of staff and others. The golf course was also lots of fun. We will definitely be back again soon.
Smugglers Cove is simply the best crazy golf course I’ve been to! It’s huge, well designed and good fun! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful! Thoroughly worth the visit and definitely recommend!!
Great adventure golf course! My two children really enjoyed it and the adults in the group loved getting competitive around the 18 hole course. The theme is really fun and the landscape is high quality and well thought out. We will definitely visit this attraction again
