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.

Water!!! Overall ok but the fairways & green are getting dried out. Not enough water available I guess. Lots of gains with new ownership, but seems to be sliding in a bad way. Hope it can be remedied July 22, 2014
Really rough The course was in very poor shape. Greens were bare and very dry. Fairways spotty, dirt was seen in many places. The course really is the poorest I've seen this year. July 22, 2014
course needs work Although my overall review wasn't good I'll give it this. The course has great potential. The greens right now are in horrible shape. Some of the landing areas in the fairways for a weekend golfer are not much better. I understand the cost in what it takes to keep up the course and if that could happen this would be one of the best courses in the surrounding Tucson area. July 22, 2014
Wait A Bit I like this course because the setup reminds me of an era gone by. The dog legs are shorter and tighter than anyplace in recent memory, but still require accuracy to play from the fairways. The small greens reinforce the premium placed on accuracy at Forty Niner. Normally, the course is pretty well maintained, but right now is not a good time. During my previous outing, the fairways were very dry and showed more gold than green grass. This time around, the fairways and rough were a little healthier, but the greens were the worst I've ever seen here. The upside was that I got the round at a steal ($10), but midway through the back 9, I began to question whether or not I'd gotten my money's worth. The condition of the greens in particular made it difficult to score from any distance, so getting on in regulation was no guarantee of a par. I'm sure the course will regain it's former glory (perhaps in another season), but I suggest waiting a bit before returning to this old favorite. July 21, 2014
lousy condition terrible condition. did't even have water in the ball washers. almost as bad condition as before it was renovated. July 19, 2014
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
poor condition Even at $14. condition was so poor it was not a good value. There are other places to play for about the same price that are in a lot better condition. 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
