This course for being around for a long time is a great track. The fairways are lined with matured tress and sand traps in tough places. There is a few water holes to keep you honest but overall is great course. The only recommendation I would make to the course is trying to maintain the pine needles taking over a few greens.

Greens are so so shape for most part.

Lots of dead trees and others that need grooming.

Not what I expected from a private course.

All in all considering price and etc l was satified.

Nice course with wide fairways and good greens. The rough was not thick, but rather weedy, much easier to play from the short grass of the fairways. A few greens should have been blown off of tree debris from the overnight (early tee-time). Overall, it was a good course with traditional layout for Sun City.

The course was in much worse shape. the fairways were in poor condition and the greens were hard but not fast...interesting. They were also very i,consistent. Not worth the money. Maybe for $25 or $30.

Course was in good shape. Greens are undulating, large and tough to score easily. No beverage cart on the day we played, but they were grilling food outside the clubhouse. Staff was friendly.

The layout of this course is pretty much like all Sun City West Courses. You have to drive across a busy street twice, which was fairly hair raising.

It was first time playing here and was looking to play close to home without breaking the bank. Once I got to the course I was impressed! Once in the course I was really impressed with how great the condition was for the course. From tee to the green every hole was in great shape!! And I didn't get to take full advantage of the weekend drink specials but, I'm looking forward to coming back to do so and enjoy the outdoor bar area I saw. Hope to get some good deals for next time and I will be back!!

This is NOT your snooty, overpriced, championship course. It is a friendly, well laid out course that was in good shape. Players here tend to be on the + side of 50 and are not pretentious in any way. This was exactly the type of course we were looking to play. You wife and I enjoyed playing union hills and will be sure to return. I am a 15 handicapper.

Nothing really wrong with this course or particularly exciting. This is just an average course that is in decent condition. There were some oddly placed up front tees. Pace would have been excellent if the two older gentlemen in front of us hadn't been playing two balls each.

Union Hills golf and country club is a challenge for any level of golfer. Subtle green undulations make it a challenge to putt. You must be on the correct level of the green to have any chance of birdie. The greens are fast and hard, fairways are well manicured. It was an absolute joy to play. Can't wait to go back.

Course was good one to start of the year. It is a relatively flat course but has several holes that make correct club selection a must. Bunkers were hard but this may have been caused by heavy rain. I will play again.

I love the course and have played here many times. It was overall a good experience but for the first time we were asked to tee off early because pace of play could be an issue. We did tee off 10 minutes early. We did not see anyone in front of us or behind us until the 8th hole when the Marshall told us we needed to play faster because we were behind a whole. I explained we could not play any faster we were just taking a lot of shot because we had two beginners and myself who had not played in months. He was nice about it but totally uncalled for. We did let a twosome play through on the 13th hole. They told us they broke away from their foresome because they did not want to stop at the turn. Pace of play was not an issue but we were rushed anyway.
