TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For at least the fourth time in seven years, a golf course in the Tucson area is shutting down.

Tucson News Now has learned the Golf Club at Vistoso, which is located in Oro Valley, is suspending operations Friday, June 1.

There are 39 employees at Vistoso and all could be losing their jobs the next day.

In April 2018, the Blanchard Golf Course on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base closed.

Earlier this year, Pima County started converting the long shuttered Canoa Hills Golf Course in Green Valley into a community park.

The last rounds were played on the Santa Rita Golf Course on Houghton Road in 2011.

The courses have cited decreasing play and increasing utility costs, including water, as major factors in their closures.
