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.

OK, but a bit rugged

A good day in spite of golf. Challenging lay. Greens were slow. Fairways not as well maintained as some other courses in the area. Given the TeeOff price, I would play again.

As good as it gets

Ok to get a round in during the day. Not a very challenging course length wise but you still have to hit quality shots. Great place to drop a couple balls and get some work in.

Love the course

We played the day before the hurricane Ian. The course was in good shape and the staff was very friendly. We were able to get in 18 holes before they closed. My friends and I love the course.

Going down hill

All the money being spent on the new clubhouse needs to be split and given back to the course . If there is a maintenance crew they forgot how to mow . The rough was US Open lengths for amateurs. Losing a ball during the round that should be found easily because the rough is so penal it takes the enjoyment out of playing .For a municipal course it's in a sad state of affairs as the rough is only one challenge . Won't be back for a long while

Mow the grass

Lost balls in fairway because of the un-mown grass. Greens were hairy too. Tee boxes are pretty beaten down. Too expensive for a municipal course. I will not play here again.
