Course is always consistently maintained. Fairways were a bit dry; probably because they’re getting ready to overseen for winter grass. Pace of play was great. Not crowded at all. That will probably change as temps cool - was stil in the high 90s on this afternoon. I play here quite often. Always enjoy it.

Decent course that's fairly wide open layout. Nothing spectacular but you can find some fair rates. Guy at the pro shop needs to work on his customer management skills.

We've watched this course and, what's left of its facilities, deteriorate over the years and now it's a comedy of errors. Course conditions are awful and none of the employees seem to care. Not worth the money or aggravation.

Course was not in top shape since they are cutting grass down to get ready for future overseeding. Despite this, course was in descent condition and very playable. Grill has a reasonably priced menu and great happy hour beer prices...very friendly staff.

Hi Sir, I'm sorry you didn't like our course. Our course is a Greg Nash layout. He is known for designing playable courses that provide fun, fair challenges to players of all abilities. So, even though our fairways are wide, the closer you get to the hole, ball placement is key. And, our par 3's can be a challenge as well. I hope you won't give up on us. Also, Tuesday afternoons aren't very busy this time of year, but as the weather cools, we will be busy all week. Weekends are already hopping. We hope you come out again and give us another try!

Hi, I'm sorry your pace of play wasn't very good that day. It was very busy, but usually we try and keep pace of play to around 4:15 or better. Thank you for your comments, we are always striving to improve.

Great course in excellent condition for September. Greens were in great shape and the fairways I found were in excellent condition. Reminded me a lot of a course back home in Western NY

Was paired up w a threesome from Wisconsin and we had a very enjoyable round.

Not too many people on the course which was surprising given how nice it was.

2 suggestions. The restrooms at the 5th hole were locked for some reason and the could've used a beverage cart. (But given so few were out it's understandable why there wasn't one)

I'd definitely play again

Thank you so much for your comments. We are in great shape, and we don't close for overseed until October 16th. We will still be looking good. As far as the restrooms, there is a key on the cart keyring, but if there isn't a sign on the restroom, people might not know that. We will get some signs on the restrooms to make it easier for our customers. Thank you!

The course was in very good condition from tees to the greens. I really liked that the fairways were in very good condition and not "browned out" like many other courses. A great value for summer play.

Course was in very playable condition. Greens rolled true. Played 18 in under 3 hours. I enjoy this course as it has everything a golf course needs. Draws, fades, straight, you will play em all!

Staff just gets you on your cart and playing with no holdups. I like that.

Union Hills Country Club is always in good shape from tee to green. Fairways are generous and low scores are possible if you can stay in the fairways. Fairways have very tall, mature trees lining both sides of the fairways. Get left or right of the fairways and trees will definitely limit your shot options. Trees also make it a great Arizona summer course since shade is abundant. I've played here many times and always enjoy the course.

Have played course several times and course is getting in better and better shape all the time. In really good shape for August and one can get a great deal on Golf Now to play it. Pace of play remains an issue but a great layout with many challenging holes. Would recommend trying it if in the Sun City area.
