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.

Babe

Not much grass on some of the course and tees. Greens and traps were decent. Some holes challenging, some easy. Pace was great and the price hard to beat.

Working man's munie

I like to play "The Babe" because of its history, its open fairways and playable holes. But its openness can be a double edged sword making some holes play very long. Greens are in good shape. Off the fairways can be a bit rough, literally.
