Forty-Niner Country Club

Tucson, Arizona | 18 holes | Traditional | Par: 72 | 6641 yards

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.
