Babe Zaharias Golf Course
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.

Poor putting surface
The putting surface was , on most holes, very poor. Bald spots, dead grass spots. And some areas of mostly sand.
Some Challenging Greens
Few fairways that are nice big and open, but the greens are where the fun begins.
Consistently Good Golf
I’ve been playing at The Babe for over 30 years. I can say with confidence that the course is playing as good as it ever played. Fun course - enjoy yourself.
It's coming around for a Muni
There hasn't been much rain, but I think they are doing the best they can. I always enjoy playing there.
Friendly staff. Nice greens today. Spotty grass in fairways but overall pretty good value for a public course.
Played there 2 weeks ago, greens and fairways were green. Today they were a little toasted. We need rain.
Played here several times earlier this year and found the greens to be in excellent condition. However, having the lack of rain and watering have left the greens in fair condition. Fairways and rough are also very dry as well.
I hope they can bring it back.
Booked through GOLFNOW hot deal. Short and narrow track. #7 & #13 need your full attention. Greens are good. Fairways spotty need some attention. Just enough water to kick this course to "somewhat challenging."
Greens were all in great condition and excellent to putt on. Fairways also in great shape, nice green grass to hit off. Don't recall any holes that had issues. Off fairway conditions were just ok, sandy in spots, lots of leaves. I felt there were some trees that needed trimming, especially when they interfered with a shot from the middle of the fairway. Great value course to play.
Very basic course
Played this course for the last course on our Florida trip. 6000 yards from the tips, par 70. Has some interesting holes, fairways were in ok shape, greens slow but in nice shape, rough was just dirt. Carts were basic. Golfed at 8:30 am and golfed in 3 hours. After all the water trouble on the other courses we played it was nice to just relax and play an easy course that allowed some birdies and a decent score.
For the value, good day!!
Overall course in good condition. But they use to many chemicals/fertilizers near the greens and on the greens. Take a hand sanitizer to use during the round!!
Haven't played here in awhile but still remembered most of the holes. Only has 2 oar 5s but some long par 4s make up for it. Course was in pretty good condition and the greens ran true. Would recommend to play
