Babe Zaharias Golf Course, located in the tree-lined residential neighborhood of Forest Hills, has an interesting history and a bright future.
Located about twenty minutes from downtown Tampa, is a golf course named after one of the greatest all-around athletes of all time, Mildred Ella “Babe” Didrikson Zaharias. Babe gained world fame in track and field and an All-American status in basketball. She also mastered tennis, played organized baseball and softball and was an expert diver, roller-skater and bowler. She won two gold medals and one silver medal for track and field in the 1932 Olympics. She won the Woman Athlete of the Year award by the Associated Press six different times and she was voted the Woman Athlete of the first half of the 20th Century. Babe was also a founding member of the LPGA and one of the first four inductees into the LPGA Hall of Fame in 1951. She won four majors as a pro golfer.
In 1949, Babe purchased the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club located in the tree-lined residential neighborhood of Forest Hills in Tampa just east of Carrollwood. She owned and managed the course until she lost her battle with cancer in 1956. The course was closed and left abandoned for some time before the City of Tampa re-opened it in 1974 and put it under the management of the Tampa Sports Authority. Now named the Babe Zaharias Golf Course, it measures a modest 6,244 yards but provides a challenge to golfers of all skill levels.
Domain Homes recently began construction on two new homes in the Babe Zaharias Golf Course community. 10500 Fore Drive overlooks the 12th tee box of the Babe Zaharias Golf Course and 10703 N Waterhole Place is just around the corner and has a view of the fairway. Both new homes are situated on 75-foot wide lots and feature 3-car garages. Priced from the mid-300s, this is an excellent opportunity to own a new home in a golf course community convenient to downtown Tampa, the airport, MacDill Air Force Base, and great schools.
