Rating 69.0

Located just 20 minutes from downtown in the Forest Hills section of Tampa, Babe Zaharias Golf Course meanders through a tree-lined residential neighborhood. The golf course measures a modest 6,020 yards, but should not be taken lightly. Although both nines on "The Babe" are par 35, the back side sports four par-4 holes in excess of 400 yards, providing a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.

Good course for the money.

Tee boxes and greens were in pretty good shape especially for this time of year. Definitely worth the money, short course played from the tips. Greens are slow but consistent, only one of the 18 greens was in not so good of shape.

Babe’s Golf Course

This course is far better than I expected. The fairways and tee boxes were well maintained. The greens were a little slow. Will play this one again

Hit your shots

This is a great track in a grand old neighborhood. You have to hit shots and make putts just like any other course.

Low Price

Paid less than 5 for a round here with promo. It was colder day manager started me on the back nine which is much harder than the front no driving range to warm up. So struggled and got stuck behind a 3some after they let me play through played much better some holes are designed well most are pretty straight forward. Some holes have the worse water hazards so challenging for a new golfer like myself but will definitely play again.
