I'm still amazed at how far this course has come in the last couple of years. It was in rough shape until present ownership took over. The resulting sharp upgrade in condition and facilities make it a pleasure to play.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JSBanner Beautiful Veteran's Day on the Course
Nothing flashy about the course but I really liked how it blended into the community. I felt like I was playing in the back yards of the residents. There were plenty of mature trees that lined the fairways, and if I am not mistaken, out-of-bounds on every hole. This is where the challenge was as the trees and out-of-bounds really narrowed some of the fairways. Bunkers didn't have much sand in them, making it a bit more difficult to play a good shot out of them. Pace of play was a bit slow as there was a 20 minute frost delay that backed things up. I am glad that I made the trip though and do recommend the course.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mucuskim excellent course
Both the greens and fairways were in excellent conditions. There were a number of people working in the fairways who didn't seem to care much about my driver hits, which made me worried. It was early afternoon - relatively quiet time of the day. I enjoyed playing at this course very much.

old traditional course smaller greens, what a course should look like before all these trick up designers got their imagination into the game. Plays along older neighborhoods huge mesquite trees and awesome mountain views. Bunkers could use use some sand and some signage issues,otherwise, play this course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tschw Bunkers could use some help
Played on a Monday with a 10:45 tee time. Teed off a few minutes early because a a no-show. Pace of play was fair, although our foursome had to wait a few minutes on every tee for the landing area to clear. The course was generally in good shape and had recently come off of cart path only. The tee boxes were inconsistently mowed with some grass blades exceeding the height of the teed ball. The greens were also inconsistent with some being considerably faster than others. The bunkers were the main concern. Most bunkers were devoid of much sand. Many of the bunkers were heavily contaminated with caliche with resulting shots being thin. I had played 49er many times in the past and the course is much better under the new management.

The course is in good shape after the re-seeding. The higher cut of the new grass and the recent rain greatly reduced roll of the ball. The greens are slow but true.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GVoldster Best condition in years.
49er is in the best condition in years. The new owners really care. I've always enjoyed this course and now the quality of the greens and fairways is close to excellent. The restaurant has a good variety of selections -- and the half-dish was nearly more than I could eat. Food quality and facility ambiance were excellent. The only glitch was a minor problem with our cart (always went into neutral whenever you stopped it).
We will be back even though we have an hour drive to get there.
