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.

good scenes You have to play a different course.. The worst course I've played in a long time. Everything about including the staff. They were not friendly and the course needs new grass and new greens.. July 16, 2014
Course needs help The lack of rain I'm sure plays a factor into condition but hitting fairway shots off of hard dirt, the rough around the greens choppy. & hard makes for really tough golf shots. Decent scoring if you can manage those two . July 13, 2014
Awful! I mean REALLY AWFUL! I'm not the person who is picky at all when it comes to course conditions, so when I think a course is in bad shape, it's in really really bad shape. But, the 49ers course is in the worst shape I've ever seen a golf course in! Seriously there is NO grass on the fair ways, just mud. The tee boxes are lumpy and have no grass. The greens are horrible with mud and sand all over them. Sometime the greens have barely any grass and you only putt on packed dirt. $5 to play this course would be over priced. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

course needs work the course is not in very good condition. both the greens and fairways have multiple bare areas. July 7, 2014
Sad to see the course go I have played 49ers before when it was in great shape, then they let it go to waste until it was bought and repaired. I played last fall and it was very nice. This time the greens were terrible, the fairways were really bad, even the tee boxes were in bad shape. This course has really nice potential if they took care of it. July 7, 2014
Two Years Down the Drain - What a Dissappointment My sympathies to Mr. Ron McKenzie. We have periodically returned to play the 49er since the new owner stepped up and revitalized this course from the ruins it had fallen into. Unfortunately, an obviously incompetent grounds superintendent has burned up the course and the course condition is absolutely HORRIBLE. Sadly, my wife and I will again cross the 49er off our list of courses to play here in Tucson. With that said, the staff we encountered were outstanding and we were very pleasantly surprised to find we received a 25% discount on our food and beverage bill in the dining room since we were golfers. Mr. McKenzie: I applaud your efforts and commitment. Your grounds staff have let you down and you have my best wishes to again return the course to a better condition. In the meantime, we won't be playing there until it does. July 6, 2014
Great value They keep prices down but the course is still in good condition for it being southern az in the summer. The staff is always great July 5, 2014
