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.

We play at BZ about every three months. It's a fun course with several tee choices. The fairways are challenging and need some help, but they are playable. I would recommend you give it a try.
Classic, great course, sprinklers were on mid day tho =/
Would've given it 5/5 as usual but we teed off at 1pm and literally all the sprinklers came on, including covering the tee boxes, mid fairways, and greens, during the first 30 min of our round. We had to wait at tee #2 for 10 min for them to stop, it soaked our cart and clubs, and when calling the clubhouse the girl admitted she should've started everyone on the 10th tee, but said there was nothing she could do about it now. Never have I ever had that happen mid day during a round. Truly annoying, but whatever. Course was still playable and it gave ur a little water park feel, lol.
Like an old friend.
Playing The Babe is like seeing an old friend that you haven't seen in a while. You pretty much know what to expect. A fresh haircut, a smile, and an untucked shirt.
There's nothing tricked up about this course. It's pretty straight forward with just enough dog legs and elevated greens to keep it interesting. The greens rolled really well in spite of a few weeds here and there. Not bad enough to even mention really. Fairways all had grass on them except for a few spots, again not a big deal. For the money I think it's an enjoyable 4 hours spent with friends and a good value. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They were doing all of the Corona protocol and I felt safe there. I had forgotten my golf GPS in the cart and when I called them about it they said that they had it in the pro shop for me. I turned around and went back to get it and thanked them. That impressed me. The only negative was the brakes on 2 of our carts wouldn't lock. They would stop you but you had to be careful how you parked or your cart would roll a little. Still not a deal breaker. Four solid stars.
Good course for the money
I got a hot deal thru Teeoff.com. $22 I believe. I had not played there since I graduated from University of Tampa in 1990. It was more of a nostalgia round for me. Played solo so pace was awesome. Met shop manager very nice lady. A great place to relax and enjoy your day. Rough was a little thick, greens were very good. Bunkers well maintained. 2 tricky holes on the back. Number 5 on front, blind shot, hit into water..ugh. Would play it again.
The pace is always great. We Always enjoy playing this Course. The pace is always good. The greens are turning out good after aeration a few weeks ago. I would recommend this Course to everyone.
Love this Course
I love the Course, pace was great. The greens were just aerated, other than that the Course was in great shape.
Remodeling club house
The clubhouse is being remodeled. Which it needed. About the course, tee boxes need a lot of work. Sparse grass on tee boxes. Fairways were thin but playable. Greens were slightly above mediocre. Staff is very friendly and pace of play was fine. I see this course as improving as time goes on. Nice community course.
Was not advised in advance they had aerified the greens the day before. Then as we made the turn we were advised we had to play the front a second time. VERY poor customer service.
No change in 35 years
When I was a young teen, my friends and I would walk this course (too young for carts). It was in poor condition, but you could walk and play and have a good time for less than $10 (food included). This was back in the early to mid 1980's. Played there on Friday at the urging of a friend. It hasn't changed a bit except for the price. The entire course was in very poor condition. For the price, highly disappointed.
Lady at pro shop not welcoming....I felt being intruder at this place...condition of the golf course just terrible...where are the faiirways???? they do not exist there....not worth even 10$....go play somwhere else...
All star cast
The course always looks good and they have a good pace of play most times but exceptional two thumbs up for the safety precautions put in place so we can continue to golf thank you Babe Zaharias staff
My brother and i play here often.. However today. The staff was RUDE dismissive and out right snobish. We showed up 20 mins early paid. Assign with another twosome seemed fine. After being told no twosome today period. We agreed and began the round. Well. Low and behold a twosome starts pushy and pushy us to play faster. WAIT WAIT I THOUGHT THEY SAID NO TWOSOME, after letting them play through what another twosome. SHAME SHAME , So when i said something to the operations manager she ROLLED HER EYES as i was speaking and kept interupting. i finally said enough. I am not asking for anything. We wont be back. To many other great courses around to waste your time here. The staff STINKS HERE. THE SO CALLED MANAGER ALLIWS HER FRIENDS TO SKIP AND DO AS THEY PLEASE. if you are an avid golfer. Skip this
