Forty Niner Golf & Country Club
This course is improving
I played this course several times last year and the condition of the course has drastically improved. It is not a desert course. It has trees and is very flat. It is very playable for golfers who play the forward tees. It's a fun course

Course was in good shape.
Played the first 9 with locals who were very pleasant and helpful. We had only played the course twice and that was last year. Course was in good shape. Suggest marshaling the course for slow play. The weather turned cool and very windy on the last few holes.

49er trending in the right direction
Overall I was very pleased with this round. The course is reasonably challenging and fair with grand old trees lining many of the fairways. This can also be a downside because a few greens had a great deal of litter due to the recent high wind on the day prior. Other than that the course was in good shape.
I really like how they've upgraded the clubhouse in recent years. I enjoyed a nice dinner after our round and the wait staff were very friendly and professional.
If you haven't played 49er in a while, I would recommend you give it a try.

Fun/Challenging Forty Niner
49er golf course is much improved over a couple of yrs ago. New ownership has put in a lot of effort and money to bring it back to the old standard. It is a challenging course but one that is fun to play. If you are in Tucson it is a course you should consider.

Good Course - Need to improve "pace of play"
49er Country Club has really improved conditions over the past 2 years. No "Players Assistant" on the course made for VERY SLOW PLAY (waited on 16 of 18 tee boxes).

Great course, friendly staff
Course was in fine shape, it was a beautiful day and I shot my handicap, what else can be said.

Enjoyable yet frustrating!
The greens were challenging and hard to read. I swear my ball broke up hill on one green! I am definitely getting back out here to see if I can conquer these greens.

Out first, course is above-average!
49er has gone through ups and downs lately, and it seems that the Golf Now reviews are the best way to find out exactly how any particular course is playing at that point in time. So I'm going to do my part and help out anyone thinking of playing here, go for it. The overseed is lush and the greens that had been damaged are back and rolling nicely. only a couple of greens had patchy problems but out of 18 i'd say only maybe five had issues and they are not putting the pins near those areas. the tee boxes need to be mown but the fairways are nice and the rough is actual rough. it will penalize you some if your ball sinks down in it.
we showed up early and were able to go out first and we flew. finished without hurrying in 3 hours, not bad for 18 holes in somewhat wet and chilly starting conditions. The starter, Ken, is awesome there!
