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.

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
quite nice The Babe may be short but it does not lack challenges. Many holes are flanked by neighborhood streets so it's easy to hit your tee shot OB. The course was in pretty good condition and the pace of play was fast. March 5, 2014
Babe Zaharias Friendly staff, nice course and good food. Played 18 holes on a beautiful day. Overall course conditions are good and the greens are fast. I like this course and will be playing here again. February 18, 2014
Nice course I enjoyed our round of golf, just wish the course was in St pete. Not worth the drive through Tampa. February 13, 2014
Disrespectful person We had a single player in front of us who was laying two balls from different parts of course ex blue tees then white tees Different sides of green We were held up for the entire back nine we played leading to others catching up to us Would not mind if he was out on course by himself but his actions held us up Never saw a ranger the whole 18 we played Really liked course challenging yet fair Will return hope the other guy doesn't,t February 7, 2014
