View Tee Times

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.

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
Great course for the money, on a weekday Played early afternoon on a weekday. Finished under 4 hours and had a lot of fun. The greens were in great shape but the tees were a bit crispy and sandy. Did not take away from a nice day. For what you pay, it was a good deal and a nice quick round. It's not TPC, which is fine because you're not paying a TPC price. May 17, 2014
Good Experience Had time to kill before a flight so chose this course as has easy access to major freeways. Was met by a very friendly staff and they got us out 15 minutes prior to our tee time. If you are an above average golfer will want to play the course from the Black Tees as from the Whites would be a bit too short. Some very nice holes as the course has great character. As others have said, the tee boxes need some work and the greens are slow but are consistent with a public course. A few bare spots on some fairways but not too bad. Thought we got good value for our money. Would play there again if in town. March 20, 2014
Pleasant game On Thursday march 13/14 we were 2 foursomes to play this course and we had na lot of fun.The staff is very courteous and nice.The course is some challenge but Ok for moderate players as we all are. March 14, 2014
nice public course Met by friendly starter and staff. Got off early and finished in less than 4 hours. Course is in good condition, but tee boxes need seeding. Back 9 has 3 holes over 410 yard par 4's. Challenging course for intermediate golfer. March 11, 2014
Golf 3/7/2014 We had good time we had a very slow group in front of us but that is. Not the fault of the course. It was in great shape considering thre rain day before March 9, 2014
