Located just 20 minutes from downtown in the Forest Hills section of Tampa, "The Babe" meanders through a tree-lined residential neighborhood. The 18 hole, par 70 course measures a modest 6,244 yards, but should not be taken lightly. Although both nines are par-35, the back side features four par-4s in excess of 400 yards, providing a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.

Babe Zaharias Golf Course underwent a 1.9 million dollar construction project in 2004 that increased the playability, beauty and challenge of the course. All of the putting greens were reconstructed to USGA specifications and replanted with Tif-Dwarf bermuda grass. Further renovations included reshaping and adding tee boxes, updating sand bunkers, resurfacing cart paths and the parking lot, and installing bollards around the perimeter of the course.

Short but challenging Municipal type course Only 6000 yards from back tees. As with the 2 other Tampa Sports Authority courses, Rocky Point & Rogers Park, this course is well maintained.. The fairways are plush & the elevated greens roll true & fast. The Par 4's on the back nine are long enough to be Par 5's for short drivers like me who only drive 240 yards. There are few houses visible on the course, & they're no where near play. There are a lot of roads that run parallel to the holes, about 4 holes have roads on both sides of the fairways & that got into my buddies head. This is why the course reminds me of Mayfair Country Club & Rolling Hills Golf Club near Orlando. I enjoyed the course & will return to play it even though my buddy won't. February 28, 2015
good course, good value Good layout, decent fairways & greens, value price after noon $23 with cart, very good grill food February 11, 2015
Over priced city course Greens keepers lack in knowledge in how to do pin placement and repairing the old cup hole I could count up to as many as 7 to 12 previous holes on each green. Sand traps were not racked properly and had to much growth on the insides of the sand traps. Fairways had different types of weeds and grass growing in them. January 11, 2015
"The Babe" Got 18 in before the rains came and they still rank right up there with some of the Orlando high end course for the best greens. Great pace of play....even with three walkers ahead of us. Staff as always very friendly and accommodating. The price was definitely right and the greens while a bit slow ran true from 1 through 18. Always a treat to play...... November 17, 2014
Great value! Overall a really great value for the money. The course is in pretty good shape based on municipal course standards. The main drawbacks to the course is a lack of a driving range and the 7th hole is a "gimmick" hole IMHO. It's not a long course at around 6300yds but it is tight with a few hazards that can come into play and has some tricky greens depending on the pin position. November 6, 2014
nice course good features good city course - close to city with mature trees and a few ponds. course in good shape. July 12, 2014
Great play I enjoyed my round of golf here but the greens needs some work and the fairways grass need to be tended to other then that I enjoy the pace of play and staff there June 27, 2014
back 9 was closed. played front 9 twice Some of the tees are in really bad shape. Some of the fairways are too. But the greens were good. May 20, 2014
