Forty Niner Golf & Country Club
first time playing. Came one other time and course was all burnt same time of the year. Nice and green ... Greens a bit scruffy on a few holes but overall very happy.

Older Course With Much Play
This was my second visit to The Forty Niner. The course seems to get a great deal of play and can get slow at times because of this. It's a flat course with some but not a great deal of trouble to get into unless you hit some really bad shots. You can score well and it play moves along it can be a decent affordable place for a round now and then.

It's been a while.
I hadn't played 49ers for quite a while because it had fallen into such disrepair. The new ownership had made it a fun place again. The updated club house and the care now given to the course make it a night and day experience. Biggest beef...hitting practice balls from the mats.

I have played here a couple times now, the course is in great shape and a good challenge I would recommend it to anyone that wanted a good challenge at a fair price.

I played this course once a number of years ago and did not like it then. But I decided to try it again this week due to a good price offered by Golf Now. Big mistake. The course is tired and not what one would expect to find in a private residential community in Tucson. The fairways and traps were rock hard, the greens rough, and the overall look and feel of the place reminded me of a worn down muni.
Very quirky layout... had to leave the driver in the bag on most holes because the fairways are narrow with LOTS of OOB stakes and fences. Also, many holes dog-legged at a 6 iron distance. That's great for one or two holes, but this happened on most of the holes it seemed.
Greens were infested with some kind of weed or grass, making putting a challenge at best. And the fairways were hard, with bare spots and weedy areas.
The range was small and one had to hit off mats to poorly defined distances.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. That was the sole bright light from an otherwise poor experience. I won't be back.

First time playing this course and as a novice player, I enjoyed the wide open fairways. Great for practicing all the woods. Very few traps of any kind, so I had a fine round!

Golf is good
The course was in good shape, especially the short grass off the fairways. The staff was excellent, dropping off my bag, and then afterwards loading it in my car. Also very friendly and courteous bartender.
