49ers Country Club


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.

El Conquistador's "Cañada" Golf Course


The Cañada course offers the perfect balance of a traditional style layout with the strategic use of the natural desert terrain and narrow fairways to provide a challenging desert experience.

Golf Pro's Note: This golf course provides more variation in terrain than Conquistador, giving you some forced carries over desert, but more forgiving landing areas. Hole #8 is one of the toughest par 3's in Tucson, making Cañada slightly more difficult than Conquistador.

El Conquistador's "Conquistador" Golf Course


Following the ravines and draws through the rolling foothills, the challenge is launching more accurate drives to less forgiving landing areas.

Golf Pro's Note: This course does not require any forced carries over desert terrain, and gives you smaller landing areas than the Canada course. High landscapers will find the grass from tee to green more appealing. You will find these golf greens generally soft and slow.
