Forty Niner Country Club is an upscale, semi-private facility designed by William Francis Bell, a prominent golf course architect during the 1950`s and 60`s.

Forty Niner is known for its lush, mature landscaping and excellent course conditioning. It is lined with mesquite, giant cottonwood, eucalyptus and weeping willow trees.

The course opened in 1961 and offers the same challenges it did more than 35 years ago when the club hosted the PGA Tour`s Tucson Open. Don January was the winner in 1963, and Jack Cupit won in 1964. Local legend even has it that one year, Jack Nicklaus failed to make the cut on friday because of an 11 he took on hole #11! This course requires accuracy off the tee and excellent course management to score well on it`s quick, small greens.

Ok Course Average course, friendly staff and a wide open course with few obstacles. March 18, 2015
Good value for the money The Resturant and bar are very good food is very good course is in good shape March 17, 2015
Horrid Heard the course had been brought back to life so decided to give it another chance. Bad idea. This was the golf experience I have ever had. Staff was incompetent and unorganized. They overbooked the course in order to make up for the cheap rates. Waited 30 minutes past my tee time at #1. Staff wouldn't let me go to 10 despite no golfers on that hole. Had a cart but was then was matched up with two old guys walking. Waited at every t-box for two slow groups in front and had two groups behind us driving straight into us. Almost got nailed multiple times by angry golfers. After 4 hours and only 12 holes I got frustrated and left. Probably would have taken close to 6 hours to finish. Never will visit this mess again.

Rude staff and slow play Where do I start...we arrived 15mins to check in and settle in which is the only good part of the experience. At check in I was told go out back and Veronica is directing, OK. There was no one outside so I picked a cart and got ready. We arrived in the tee off line. "Veronica" in a snarky tone asked pur tee time...not our name or anything. We told her and she assumed she could match us up. No we would prefer to play alone as I am still learning and he is teaching. OK sure you can play after who you would've been matched with, ok. 25mins later...we need to match you up you can play with them. Them being 2 older guys will pull carts! While we are in a golf cart...what! No. Had to talk tp the registration guy about a possible refund he said no. So we ended up with the 2 older guys playing soo slow ahead of us (who were actually booked 2 slots behind us) and 3 carts stacked behind us. It was so rushed due to the double booking I didn't even play except 1 par 3. It took 4.5 hrs to play 11 holes before it got dark. I will never play here again or recommend it to anyone. They double book to make up for the price and the staff could care less. March 9, 2015
OK, not outstanding The holes were pretty average, not bad, but not really memorable either. The course was in good shape, but we were disappointed that it was not more scenic (most fairways lined with houses close by). First time players have no clue as to how the holes go, not even tiny pictures on the scorecard. At the second (third?) hole (a dogleg) this could even lead to a dangerous situation. Gentlemen who are long off the tee can hit into the group ahead without even realizing they are so close. The guy at reception was friendly and capable, which is more than I can say of the restaurant help. The greenfee came with an offer of 25% off food plus one beer for one dollar per greenfee. We did have the beers with the people we played with, and were planning to have dinner there too. The other two were not staying, so we wanted to settle the drinks first, when they left. To our surprise, the waitress said we only got one beer for 1 dollar-although we had paid for two greenfees because they were both on the same receipt. (?!) When we said this was not correct she got very snotty. On principle my husband went to the reception, and although the guy from the reception came immediately to explain that we were entitled to a beer each, and the manager did apologize for the waitress, the mood was spoiled and we did not stay for dinner. All in all reasonable value for the money but some rough edges need smoothing in order to compete with so many (good) courses in the area. March 5, 2015
accommodating Missed our tee time by two hours and the friendly staff paired us with two friendly and helpful members,getting us on the course immediately at midday . Course was in very good shape and the pace of play was very good for midday. March 2, 2015
A good walk enjoyed Played a nice golf course that I highly recommend. A little crowded but pace of play was good. February 28, 2015
