Mens Golf Association


Forty Niner CC Men’s Golf Association
Forty Niner Country Club is a semiprivate golf club geared towards providing an enjoyable golf experience, every time to every member and guest that plays our course.
We aim to provide special events throughout the year that appeal to all walks of our membership to enhance the golf experience.  We try to balance competition with the social aspects of golf.
To cater to the competitive members, we have a club within the club called the Men’s Golf Association, or simply MGA.  The MGA is open to male members that hold full golf memberships. 
The MGA plays almost every Saturday with different events scheduled including once a month ABCD format.  There are also special events throughout their calendar year including team events, Men’s Invitational, Member-Member, and other special events that you must be a member of the MGA to participate in.
The MGA Annual dues of $125 cover entry fees and prize money into many of the special events.
For more info or to join the MGA, please contact Casey Polivchak (520)749-4925 ext.212 or via email at caseyp@fortyninercc.com
